Henry Stephen (Hank) Luchner, 89, died June 3, 2021 at home surrounded by loving family.
A funeral mass will be held at St. John’s Church in Enterprise on Thursday, June 17, at 11 a.m. There will be a graveside service with full military honors at Sacred Heart Cemetery in Burlington, Iowa on Saturday, July 10 at 10 a.m.
Henry was born Jan. 2, 1932 in Burlington, Iowa to Harry Stephen and Martha Jane (DeVilbiss) Luchner. He married Rosemary Diane Rowe on Dec. 27, 1954 in Burlington, Iowa.
Henry retired in 1989 as a CW4 from the Alabama National Guard after a 38 year career as a helicopter pilot.
Henry and Rosemary founded Turf Tenders Lawn Care in 1981 in Enterprise.
He filled his home life with his love of family – which very much included his dogs. He loved gardening and Rosemary enjoyed it very much whenever he would cut and bring her one of his beautiful roses – just for her. An avid genealogist, he was always generous to share whatever he could with other families in hopes that it would bring everyone closer together.
In addition to Rosemary, Henry is survived by his children Rebecca (Mark) Dawson, Stephen (Janice), Michael (Daynee), Timothy (Lori), Thomas (Suzy), Mary (Blaine) Wagner, Matt (Annette) and one cousin, Dick Denz. Twenty grandchildren and 30 great-grandchildren, with three on the way, will carry his legacy.
Preceding him was his cousin, Joan Denz Ott. May they Rest in Peace.
