Carl C. Luchetti Jr.

Friday, December 24, 1937Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Carl C. Luchetti Jr., a resident of West Wyoming, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, April 30, 2019, at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township.

His loving wife is Joan E. (Bepersti) Luchetti. Together, Carl and Joan celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary on December 26th.

Born on December 24, 1937, in Exeter, Carl was one of four children born to the late Carl Luchetti Sr. and Angela (Pisano) Luchetti.

Raised in Exeter, Carl was a graduate of the former Exeter High School, Class of 1955. Following high school, he went on to attend the University of Scranton where in 1959 he acquired his Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics.

A proud veteran, Carl honorably served his country for nearly ten years in both the United States Army and the United States Army Reserves.

Prior to his retirement in 2000, Carl was the owner and operator of Luchetti Sales and Service, Inc., Exeter, a Jeep dealership.

Carl was a longtime member of Saint Monica’s Parish, Our Lady of Sorrows Church, West Wyoming.

An avid hunter and outdoorsman, Carl loved spending time at his farm in Franklin Township. He was a member of the National Rifle Association and the American Trapshooter Association. His passion for trapshooting led him to be the PA State Singles Champion in 1968, the PA State High Overall Champion in 1981, and the PA State Doubles Champion in 1983. He was also a lifelong fan of Notre Dame Football and the New York Yankees.

Carl will be best remembered for the love and devotion he had for his family. His grandchildren were the light of his life and he reveled in all of their accomplishments. His presence will be deeply missed by all those who knew and loved him.

The Luchetti family wishes to extend their heartfelt gratitude to each of Carl’s friends, too numerous to mention individually, for their true friendship and constant support of Carl. The family wishes to also extend their heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Gerald Gibbons and Dr. Robert Fiorelli for the excellent care they provided Carl over the years.

Condolences

I bought my first new car from Carl. He was tough but fair, a no-nonsense, honest guy. I liked him very much.
As a lifelong friend and classmate, I wish to extend my sincere condolences to all of Carl's family. Carl and I had a lot of memorable good times together. His loyalty and friendship were his hallmark. Rest in peace my friend until we meet again. John J Voda

We'd like to extend our condolences to the Luchetti family for your loss. Mr. Luchetti was a one of a kind, a "REAL" man. You never had to guess what he thought or wonder what was on his mind. He was always a hard-working man that live life to the fullest and truly cared and loved his family and his friends. There is no better measurement of his success in life than looking at the success of his children and his grandchildren. They have truly been a remarkable family. His firmness and demand for them to do their best have left it's mark! There will always be only one "Mr. Luchetti", he earned that!! Over the last couple months he has had a difficult life, a life that he would never want or have his family carry this burden. He is in a better place and his suffering is over. Cherish the memories and times that you spent with him. You will meet again. May he rest with peace. Jim, Linda, Lauren and Matt Zardecki
John, Your father is gone from your sight, but never from your heart. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Donna Johnson, IBM.
