Gary M. Luck

With great sadness, we write to inform you of the death of Gary Luck, husband of Nancy Luck, father of Aviva Shlimovitz (Cary), Tamara Koransky (Jason), Talia Plotkin (Gabriel), Arik Luck (Rachel), Jake Luck, grandfather of 14 grandchildren: Ariana, Eli, Maya, Sophie, Ezra, Abe, Violet, Zev, Yedidyah, Zohara, Sam, Tallulah, Ira, and Opal, brother of David Luck (Fran), uncle of Shula Luck, Joseph Luck, Dania Luck, and Aytan Luck (Rae). 

Gary died on September 25, 2020 at age 78 while listening to The Highwaymen, with two of his daughters by his side. Gary was a lover of life, most passionate about his family. He derived much nachas from his 5 children and 14 grandchildren and always said this was his greatest joy. He was married to Nancy, his true love, for 55 years after meeting at the library at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and arguing with her over the merits of Beethoven versus Brahms. They were inseparable.
