A Community In Mourning

The dense fog that blanketed south central Nebraska last Wednesday has claimed the life of a beloved community member and family man.

Mark Lutz was already working before sunrise when the fog rolled in and the driver of a vehicle who didn't see him approaching pulled onto the highway into his path. He swerved to avoid the collision and was ejected from his rolling vehicle.

He passed yesterday afternoon from a blood clot resulting from his injuries.
Mark was a member of the Peetz, CO and Sutherland, NE volunteer fire departments and EMT squads. His obituary lists the loves of his life as his family, firefighting, fishing and hunting.

His brothers and sisters on the Sutherland squad have erected a memorial in his honor at the Sutherland Volunteer Fire Department.

I join them in remembering his family in my prayers.
