Clyde Wesley Luck Obituary, 2001

Clyde Wesley Luck was born Thursday, May 12, 1910, in 
Crawford County, Mo., a son of the late Thomas Edward 
Luck and Mattie Ora Luck (nee Halbert).

He entered eternal rest Friday, February 2, 2001, at his 
home near Steelville, Mo., at the age of 90 years, 8 
months and 21 days.

On January 6, 1937, in Steelville, Mo., Clyde was united 
in marriage to Jewell Ware. Three sons were born to this 
union. Clyde and Jewell enjoyed over sixty-three years together.

In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by 
two brothers, Thomas C. Luck and Johnnie R. Luck and 
one sister, Hazel Harmon.

Among those who remain to mourn his passing are his devoted
wife, Jewell Luck, of Steelville, Mo.; three sons, Darrell 
Luck of Steelville, Mo., Leroy Luck and wife Patricia of 
High Ridge, Mo., and Tom Luck and wife Bettty of Daytona
Beach, Florida.

Four sisters, Pearl Woods of Steelville, Mo., Ada Schwent 
and husband John of Cuba, Mo., Daphna Ramori and husband 
Domenic of Cuba, Mo., and Mary Gregory of St. Louis, Mo.; 
seven grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren, nieces, 
nephews, other relatives, and many friends.

Clyde was a brother, but more than just a brother. He was 
a father that was more than just a father. He loved his 
family as much as they loved and respected him.

He was a friend who was always there when needed, no matter
what the circumstances. Regardless of the job that needed 
to be done, he was always there without having to be asked. 
With his quiet manner he could lead through any job that 
needed to be done, but never had to say more than a dozen 

He loved being outdoors, either fishing or hunting, and was 
always ready to take one more little circle looking for that 
last squirrel, or as his boys would say, sometimes the first
one, even if it was five miles back to the car. They would 
walk it with him all the way.

Then one evening just at sunset he slipped away just as 
quietly as he had lived. Dear husband, Dad, Grandpa, and 
Brother, we wish you a happy journey.
