Herman Luck Obituary

Herman Joseph Luck passed away in Fairview, Alberta Long Term Care Center on January 23, 2024, at the age of 91 years.

Herman was born on October 10, 1932, and was raised in a family of eleven children. In his early years, he helped his parents work on their family farm. As he got older, he branched out into other jobs, which over the years included truck driving, roofing, commercial fishing on Great Slave Lake, and others. Herman married Mary Friedel (nee Doll) on October 10, 1961. Mary at that time, was a widow with five children. Herman and Mary worked hard to develop their farm, raising cattle, hogs, chickens, and grain. Along with farming, Herman was most likely known for his exceptional skills operating his front-end loader/backhoe business, which stemmed over 5 decades through out the entire Peace Region.

Herman and Mary had one son, Edwin, in 1963.

Throughout his lifetime, Herman always had a true passion for music and entertaining. He played in bands, with various groups, with singing partners and church choirs. His music touched countless lives throughout his lifetime, from young to old.

Herman was a man of faith, which he lived and followed throughout his lifetime. He was a Life Member of the Knights of Columbus, where he served Fraternity, Church, and Community for over 60 years. He served on many boards and Societies and donated his time selflessly to many worthy causes and needs. The Friedenstal community was especially important to Herman. He was always willing to help a fellow farmer, a neighbour, a friend. He was never worried about being paid for such, he simply enjoyed helping where a hand was needed.

Herman was a humourist and loved making people laugh. Many say they will surely miss his one liners and jokes which he so freely offered.

Herman was predeceased by his:

· Wife Mary, Stepdaughter Diane, Stepsons Richard and Martin, and Granddaughter Linda

· Parents Paul and Paula Luck

· Brothers Willie, Tony, Joseph, Martin, John, and Frank
