W. Allen Lutz, 66, of Bucyrus, died Friday, May 17, 2019 at Oak Grove Manor in Mansfield, Ohio following a brief battle with brain cancer.
He was born March 6, 1953 in Bucyrus to the late Wilmer Albert and Frieda (Klingenberger) Lutz. Allen was a 1971 graduate of Bucyrus High School and received his bachelor’s degree from Kent State University before serving three years in the US Army.
Allen drove semi-truck for many years and worked for both North American Trucking and Warner Trucking. He was often on the road for months at a time which allowed him to see countless beautiful sites throughout the United States. His career came to an end when his mom got sick and he chose to stay home and care for her.
Allen enjoyed tinkering with and driving his Mustang and he liked to take care of his yard. He often rode his bicycle around town and for relaxation, he enjoyed eating oranges while watching game shows or Survivor. He lived a solitary lifestyle, but he did enjoy an occasional visit from a neighbor or family member.
Allen is survived by several extended family members.
Graveside services were held at 3:00 pm Tuesday, May 21 at Oakwood Cemetery where Military Rites were provided by the Bucyrus Veterans Military Funeral Detail and the US Army Honor Guard.
Memorial donations can be made payable to the Humane Society serving Crawford County and will be accepted through Wise Funeral Service.
