We are saddened by the loss of Doug Luczak, who, along with his wife Cindy, have been members of the St. Helen Snowpackers since 2013. A donation in Doug’s name has been made to the Snowpackers as a tribute to his enjoyment in the sport and fellowship of the Club. Below follows an excerpt from his obituary:
"Doug passed away unexpectedly, Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at the family cottage in Gladwin, MI. Age 54 years. Doug was born January 26, 1963 in Bay City and has been a lifelong resident. He was a member of Corpus Christi Parish-Holy Trinity Church. He graduated in 1981 from T.L. Handy High School and went on to graduate in 1986 from Wayne State University Department of Mortuary Science. Doug was a Licensed Funeral Director and co-owner of Gephart Funeral Home, Inc. along with his father, Gerald A. Luczak and his brother, David. He was an active member of the Michigan Funeral Directors Association and Past-President of District #7. Doug was also a member of the Bay City Moose Lodge #169, the Knights of Columbus Council #414, the Bay City Lions Club, the Secord Lake Eagles Club Aerie 4121 and the St. Helen Snowpackers Snowmobile Club. He also sponsored numerous community events and baseball teams. Doug enjoyed taking golf cart rides with his dog, Fluffy. There was nothing that made him happier than making his kids nervous by saying “The little bird was watching” their every move. He was the #1 fan in the stands for his children. Some of his greatest adventures were alongside the love of his life Cindy. Doug was an avid boater and snowmobiler. His family and friends brought him joy and he left a lasting impression on everyone he met."
Well met Doug - we will miss you.
