Subject: Death of Richard Luht Jr. - Fountain Outline Creator
Dear Family and Friends,
It is with great sadness that I have to
inform you that my father Richard I. Luht Jr. has passed away. There was an automobile
accident on Sunday January 31, 1999 that claimed his life.
The funeral services will be held on
Sunday January 7th, 1999 at 3 p.m. in Fairbanks, Alaska. His lifelong friend Sam Ruckman
will be officiating the ceremony at the Fairbanks Lutheran Church located at 101
Cowles St. Fairbanks, AK.
He had been on his way home from his office when the accident occurred.
Because of this, the Federal Government is classifying it as "in the line of
duty". The Alaska Peace Officers Assoc. will be presenting him with honors at
the funeral. Our Family has already received condolences from the Assistant Director of
Criminal Investigations in Washington, D.C. as well as the entire chain of command
from the western region.
We are creating a charitable fund in his memory for either abused children or
persons with heart disease. In lieu of sending flowers please send donations to the
P.O. Box at the bottom of the letter.
Currently, the immediate family is together and supporting each other in
Fairbanks. My grandmother, Robin, is on her way to Fairbanks with my uncle Al and
his wife Mary.
We have received a lot of support from family, friends and the
community. We appreciate the support that all of you would offer as well, but
in order to limit the amount of calls for my mother I would ask that you
individually e-mail me back at this address at get our phone number if you wish to contact
us in person.
It is with a heavy heart that I am informing you, but he will
forever live on inside of us within the memories and experiences that we share.
Richard I. Luht III
