Frank Warren LuzarJanuary 9, 1930 ~ October 4, 2017 (age 87)
Frank Warren Luzar, 87, passed from this world to the next on Wednesday, October 4, 2017. He was born on January 9, 1930 to Frank J. and Hazel U. (Yeagley) Luzar in Indianapolis.
A Father who took care of his son Mark for so many years. Countless trips to INDY which he so enjoyed. Saddened when he couldn't drive himself for those visits. He had a deep passion for all kinds of animals especially birds. He was always bringing home orphaned animals which included rabbits, squirrels, pigeons and dogs to name a few. In his heart, he was deeply honored to serve in the United States Army and had some stories to share, but he was a quiet man about that part of his life. He served in the Korean Conflict stationed in Bad Kreuznach, Germany. He belonged to KSKJ St. Aloysius Lodge #52 and the Slovenian National Home. He so enjoyed a good cigar and would never give that up for anyone. His happiest days spent on his small farm enjoying the quiet, watching the farmers, sitting on his porch smoking, watching his chickens and glad when his neighbors stopped by. His place in Ladoga brought him back to his childhood where he spent summers with his Pa (painting houses) and Ma Yeagley. Frank will be most likely remembered for handing out $2 bills for birthdays and Christmas to the special people in his life.
Frank was preceded in death by his parents, Frank J. and Hazel U. (Yeagley) Luzar, son Frankie D. Luzar, daughter Leslie Jean Luzar, sister Bette G. Mediate and grandson Jeremy N. Dreher.
He is survived by son Mark A. Luzar, two daughters Sherree A. (husband Jerry) Tate, and Karen S. (husband Don) Dreher, sister Virginia R. (Ginger) Kitcoff (FL), 10 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren.
