Frederick J. Luth
Fortified with the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church, passed on Monday, January 18, 2021 at the age of 92. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 64 years, Lois M. Luth and son-in-law Timothy Thornton. Dear father to Carol (Keith Schuette) Viamontes, Terry Thornton, Peggy Cooper, and John (Diane) Luth; dear grandfather to George (Stacy) Viamontes, Patrick (Emily) Thornton, Michelle Cooper, Katie (Brenden) Bruss, Meaghan (Bryan) Rogers, Erin Luth, and Jack (Micaela Lonigro) Luth; dear great-grandfather to George, Grace, and Carver; dear brother-in-law to Dr. Charles Stuever, DDS, dear uncle, cousin, and friend to many. A graduate of Saint Louis University High and Saint Louis University, Fred was an accountant and a devoted member of Saint Michael the Archangel Parish for almost 70 years. Many people in Fred’s extended family considered him a bedrock, but he humbly thought of himself as someone who did what needed to be done. His family will miss getting his personalized birthday and holiday cards. In his leisure time, he bowled as part of a team and golfed. Fred and Lois were fiercely competitive bridge players and worked on the newspaper puzzle page together every day, a tradition he continued after her death. Fred was unusual among his peers for becoming computer proficient and using his PC every day.
