Luthy to be honored at Case celebration


Tom Luthy Sr. will be honored with a commemorative knife at this year’s Case Celebration of the Ozarks, which is scheduled for Sept. 8.
The announcement was made at Shepherd Hills last week with members of the late Luthy’s family, daughters Pat Maxey, Judy Slaughter, sons Charles Luthy and Tom Luthy Jr. and daughter Becky Reid and her husband Rod Reid, of Shepherd Hills. They recalled Tom Luthy Sr. as a hard worker, a leader and someone who would stand up for his beliefs.
According to the announcement from Case Knives, Luthy “was a successful farmer, known to be a man of his word, a man of ingenuity, with an uncommon amount of common sense. he had an impeccable work ethic, loved his family and lived his faith, an honest and fair man.”
Luthy was also known as a community leader who helped consolidate the area’s small rural schools and organize the Joel E. Barber C-5 School District.
“Always ready to serve when a friend or his community needed him, he modeled for us all a life well lived,” the statement said.
Tom Luthy Jr. recalled that his father and Joel E. Barber went to Jefferson City to help organize the school district.
