  • Mrs. K., Stacey, Johnny, Greg – So sorry to hear about Mr. K’s passing. I have so many fond memories of Lutron St. and your family was such a big part of it. I remember Mr. K always working but still was able to come out and kick the soccer ball from time to time. He was such a hard worker but he would always smile, wave and ask you how things were going.
    Please pass along my condolences to your growing family.
    Remember all the good times. May he rest in peace.
