Luther was a veteran of both the United States Navy and United States Air Force. After serving his country, Luther retired from a long career at UPS. Known to never meet a stranger, Luther was a happy-go-lucky person who would strike up a conversation with anyone. He enjoyed talking about the Bible and worshiping at Central Church of God with his daughters and grandchildren. He spent his free time playing chess with friends and neighbors. One of his favorite past times was taking his grandchildren to the park. Luther was a devoted, loving, and supportive dad and grandpa. He was one of kind. Although he is gone, he will never be forgotten.
