Obituary for Marc L. Luther

GANSEVOORT - Marc L. Luther, 61, of Northern Pines Road, was received into the loving arms of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ unexpectedly on Sunday November 5th.
Born in Troy, January 31, 1962, son of the late Edgar “Bud” and Sylvia Luther, Marc was a 1981 graduate of Stillwater Central School, where he played football and baseball and excelled as a hard-throwing lefty. For 36 years, Marc worked with the US Postal Service, serving several years in Mechanicville before moving on to Amsterdam, Glens Falls and Albany.
A very talented man, Marc had a beautiful tenor voice, singing at weddings and funerals, and was also a member of the Dorothy Welch Choir and the Uncle Sam Barbershop Quartet, and cherished his time participating in the Everlasting Lights in Greenwich. He also enjoyed listening to all genres of music. He had a great love of the outdoors, was a fisherman most of his life, enjoyed gardening and was an avid bird watcher. He was a lifelong Boston Red Sox baseball fan and Kansas City Chiefs football fan and recently attended a winning Chiefs game.
Above all, Marc was a family man, who loved being with his family and friends, and found joy in his personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Survivors include his loving wife of 37 years, Sharlene Yager Luther, proud sons Loren and Alexander Luther, both of Wilton, his siblings David (Karen) Luther of Stillwater, Michele (James) Richards of No. Topsail Beach, N.C., Lisa (Tom) Riley of Holly Ridge, N.C. and Rebecca (Morris Jr.) Patenaude of Stillwater, his Uncle Joe Merluzzo of Stillwater, along with nieces, nephews, cousins and many dear friends. In addition to his parents, Marc was predeceased by his brother Keith Luther.
A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, Nov. 11th at Noon at Hoosic Valley Community Church, Rte 40, Schaghticoke. Family will receive friends on Saturday from 10AM until services at Noon.
