Rip Uncle Lar. you made my teen and 20 years great. I couldn't wait to hear you every day. We used to cruise a shopping center and everyone had there radios turned up loud and listening to you. It was absolutely the best time of my life. Thank you always. Goodbye old friend. I'll see you at that radio station in the sky one day.
You were quite simply the best there ever was at what you did, and an important part of my growing up in Chi town. Peace my brother.
I'll miss you everyday. I have some cassettes of your shows, so your voice won''t be totally silent for me. Thanks for my crazy nickname when our group would cut class and visit WCFL and WLS..I will treasure it. Say hi to .Joel, Barney, Spacey Dave...
We remember Larry Lujack as a Classmate in the Caldwell High School Class of 1957 in Caldwell, Idaho. He was a good athlete, a friend and a character even at 16. We send our sympathy to his family for their loss.
Having grown up in Cleveland and Buffalo, I'd never heard of Larry Lujack until I bought his autobiography in December of 1976, but I've since seen him on YouTube and heard him on REELRADIO. I was sorry to read in the Buffalo News that he passed away the week before Christmas.
Andrea, Buffalo NY
I am very sorry for your loss. During this time turning to God an his word the Bible can bring much comfort. Act 24:15 shows that your love one has the hope to live again. I offer my condolences during this sad time.
I would religiously listen to Larry and his morning show on WLS back when I was growing up in the Chicago area. Started my morning! So sorry to learn he passed away. Prayers for his family....
Our sympathies to you. It was obvious he loved you dearly. May he rest in peace with the Lord.
To the family, my deepest sympathy. Know that God cares and loves you. He has provided a means to conquor death. Have strong faith in his promises. Heb.2:9
My heart felt condolences to your Family upon the loss of Larry. Like millions of others, I was a fan of 'ol Uncle Lar, and listened to the show reliously.
I wish you God's speed in these very tuff times.
My condolences to the Larry Lujack family. Larry was so much fun to listen. I will miss
him. Take care and God bless all of you in
Larry's immediate family.
TO THE FAMILY, FRIENDS AND FANS, MY DEEPEST CONDOLENCES. MAY YOU BE COMFORTED BY PSALM 94:19.
To the Lujack Family
I am real sorry to hear of your loss. It is God's will that all pain suffering and death be no more.
Can you imagine a grand time when death and pain will be no more.

you were and are part of my youth... I miss the ole days.... Thank you for all the smiles you put on my face as I drove in my 1968 AMX back in the day. God bless you and your family....
Uncle Lar was a "must listen to" in southeast Wisconsin. He as the best in an era of radio greatness
I am so sorry for your loss. So thankful for the difference that Jack made in our lives. Find comfort in knowing that he is precious in God's eyes.
See ya on the farm someday Uncle Lar
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
My sympathy to the family of Larry. Your loved will be missed. May God grant you peace during these difficult days. Romans 15:33
I grew up listening to Larry every morning...from my teens into my marriage. He will always be one of the great ones.
Priscilla said Larry was missed long before he left this earth. Boy, is that the truth! I will never forget how sad I was when he left WLS! Listening to him during my years of teenage angst brought me a bit of sorely needed laughter every school day. I truly have missed him ever since. I send condolences to his family and, like Priscilla, hope to hear him again in heaven someday. He was the best, never equaled.
prayers and condolences go to the family of a great radio personality in the Chicago area. he always made my trips to Chicago enjoyable. WCFL and WLS are better off having a legend working for them. rest in peace Larry now you are broadcasting for a greater audience now in heaven.
I listened to Larry Lujack back in the early eighties on WLS at night when I was traveling in South GA and North FL. I still from time to time go on YouTube and listen to him on Animal Stories. I miss his wit. Tim Anderson (Macon, GA)
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
I hope that you're still handing out shiny new dimes when I get to Heaven so I can hear Superjock again. RIP Uncle Lar, you made my teenage radio listening personal. You were missed way before you left this earth.
He will be missed in Seattle
We remember Larry Lujack from our teenage days growing up listening to him on WLS radio. We didn't live in Chicago we live west of there 60 - 70 miles away.A friend once told me she heard WLS in Northern WI. We were saddened to hear that he had passed away. He was a Great DJ, we will never forget him!!! Our thoughts and prayers are with his family!! We will remember him always! God Bless
So sorry to hear about Larry's passing. I listen to him and Tommy for years. He always made me laugh, he was one of a kind and it is a shame that the coming generations will not get to know him. He was one of the greats. Hugs and prayers to his family. May all the great memories give you comfort in the coming weeks. He and Dick Biondi were always my favorites. Sherry (Gutierrez) Hickey formerly Aurora, Ill., now Sparta, Tn.
RIP Larry...Your a legend that will forever live in my heart. You put a smile on our faces so many times. Our Family sends our condolences to your Family.
Larry Lujack was the biggest part of my radio listening days as a young adult on Super CFL AM 1000 & WLS Am 89,The Rock of Chicago.I will miss Ol'Uncle Lar forever.RIP my DJ friend,you were the greatest!
As a resident of Rockford, Illinois in the early eighties, I'd schedule my evening routine around Animal Stories. As soon as the clock struck 5:45, I knew I'd better stop what I was doing and run to my radio. I miss those days,..and I miss "Old Uncle Lar".
Rest In Peace, Larry Lujack...and thanks for the laughter that you brought to my life. You will be missed by many.
Farewell Superjock!Memories abound, that will stay with me always. Until we meet again...
A reunion with John is your sweet reward!
"It's a quarter to 10.......time for animal stories with your ol Uncle Lar and Little Tommy, I planned my mornings around Larry's show for years.
He brightened up the days of many many people, what better legacy can there be. My condolences to the family.
You are the absolute greatest. R I P
And before Chicago, he was a huge part of Seattle / Tacoma on KJR with Pat O'Day, Dick Curtis, Lan Roberts and Tom Murphy. While I viewed the listing with sadness, it also brings back many warm memories. Thanks, Larry, for being with us on the radio while we cruised the Ave.
Requiescat in Pace e grazie per l'anni.
Dio vi Benedica,
+Patri A Armonda Smd Essene priest
Growing up in Ohio, "Super CFL" and "Uncle Lar" were a large part of the "soundtrack" of my youth. Larry's passing is the end of an era as "Superjock" truly was one of a kind. It has been said that a great person is someone who does not remind you of anyone else. Larry Lujack was in a category all his own. God bless you Larry.
A true Chicago intitition. I'll never forget Larry Lujack. I remember getting his autograph at Yorktown Mall in suburban Chicago when I was younger. My sympathy to his family.
Living outside Ft. Wayne, Indiana, it was difficult to get a good signal from WLS, but listing to Larry Lujack was well-worth the effort. He contributed a great deal of humor and fun to my life, at a time when I was an insecure teen. He leaves behind a wonderful broadcasting legacy that I will remember always. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
My sincerest condolences to Mr Lujack's family. I was one of the thousands who listened to him in my youth. I still recall many of the witty remarks he made. He was loved by many, whether he wanted it or not!
God bless you and your loved ones ~ Rest in peace.
Uncle Lar got me out of bed and off to work for years. I missed him when he left WLS. There has never been anyone even close to him. I loved his classic "animal stories" with little Tommy. RIP Larry, you had a great run.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
My heartfelt sympathy goes out to your family at this most difficult time. Please be assured that God will help you cope with your loss.
My condolences to the family and friends. May you all draw close to God during this time of sorrow. James 4:8
Sorry for your loss. Grief can be so hard but the love and support f family and friends help us cope. Please find comfort in the memories you have of Larry and,may it help to ease the pain you are feeling. Draw close to God and he will draw close to you. James 4:8
May God remember him personally. Malachi3:16
My deepest condolences to the entire Lujack family. To you he was the center of your life, your Rock of Gibraltar, your everything. To us he was the guy who talked us into walking out the door in the morning and trying to get the rest of the day right without taking ourselves too seriously. To those of us blessed to make a living in the same way he did he was the gold standard that we still battle to reach.
Know that in your sorrow that your Larry made the world a better place for more people than you could ever imagine.
One of the great radio personalities. I remember listening to him and Tommy growing up in southwest Michigan. I still have my Animal Stories vinyl LP's. My condolences to his family
So Sorry for the loss, as a young kid growing up in South Louisiana, we could hear Larry Lujack on the radio. Great show, great times.
Judith and Family,
So sorry to hear of your great loss, our
thoughts and prayers are with you.
Larry was truly one of a kind and we were very lucky to have had him in our life. He was very much loved.
Ron & Barbara Stevens
I will never forget driving along the Dan Ryan Expressway in the spring of l973 and hearing Larry read a live commercial for the VW Bug. at that time, there was a sniper shooting at cars off of overpasses, and in typical Larry Lujack style, he finished the commercial and then added, "and there's another great feature of the VW Bug too..it's smaller in size than just about any other car, so your chances of getting shot are so much less!"
May the God of tender mercies and comfort sustain you in this time of sorrow. 1Cor 1:3,4
In the late 60's; he emceed a lot at Majectic Hills in Lake Geneva Wisconsin for those concerts & I met him several times. Thanks for the memories there and on WLS all those years!
Judy, my deepest condolences. I was Lew Witz' assistant at WCFL. Larry was definitely a sweet and caring individual. I'm sure he's making a lot of folks happy in heaven. Hold on to the good times - I know there were many. I also remember you well.
I got to meet "Uncle Lar" three days before Larry Lujack retired from Radio at the lobby of WLS Studios in Chicago. I worked in Radio at the time and he was very nice and polite to talk to in person. What I will always remember, was all of the "inside" jokes he had for his job. Plus you add the "Cheap, Trashy, Showbiz" report as well as "Animal Stories" to his radio credits. If there was one person who got me out of bed in the mornings before I left for school back in the 1970s and 1980s, It Was Larry Lujack. May God bless you Uncle Lar, as well as your family.
Sorry for your loss. May the God of peace & comfort be with your family during this difficult time.-Romans 15:33
Years ago listened to you and Fred Winston near Chicago, no better radio since. Rest in Peace.
My condolences to the family ,and may his song play in heaven!
I met him in person in the early 70's. I gave him a note from someone else. He was very cool.
His show started almost every day of High School for me. I loved Larry Lujack. My sympathies go to the Lujack family.
Larry was the light of my Day,you were the best.
Thanks for the Memories and God Bless.
I remember Uncle Larry - listened every morning - He and "little Snot nose Tommie", Anyway - you'll be missed greatly - you were the 'PILOT OF THE AIRWAVES". When I was stationed @ Great Lakes Naval Base 1976-1979
I remember Uncle Lar and little snot nosed Tommy when I was growing up in downstate Illinois where WLS came in strong. Lots of fond memories.
I have fond memories growing up on the Southside listening to Uncle Lar.A great voice will be missed! Take comfort in God's wonderful promise to reunite us with our loved ones on a Paradise earth.
I'm so sorry for your loss. May you find peace in knowing that he was loved by SO MANY and that most of us grew up listening to him daily myself included! I hated to miss his show. May you REST IN PEACE Uncle Larry.
Uncle Lar was my hero when I worked the tollway as a trooper. Later a good friend Jeff Laird who had a voice like Larry's said he was doing a gig with Larry from out west. They're both gone and truly missed. Some things stay in our hearts forever as will Your husband. I know the loss of a spouse and know you will make it through. Remember, You never know how strong you are, until strength is all you have. God Bless Ed
Larry Lujack was my gateway to music when I was a kid. I listened to him on WLS and enjoyed every minute...he was fabulous, I loved him. May his memories keep you comforted at this time of sorrow.
To the Lujack Family,
A great one gone from this earth and Heaven gains one! From Wisconsin and will always remember "Lary Lujack WLS Chicago!" A wonderful time in my life - Thanks Larry!
Sad news. Hivelys' old neighbors from Palatine...
God Bless You and Your Family.
We extend our heartfelt condolences to the family of Mr. Lujack. May you find peace that the God of all comfort provides during these difficult times.
So sad to hear about Larry. I grew up listening to him on the radio. Prayers to his family.
So sorry to hear of Larry's passing. I remember sneaking under my bedspread with my transistor radio to listen to the latest hits on WLS when I was suppose to be sleeping!and every year we went out west on vacation to visit the relatives, I couldn't wait to get close enough to Chicago to pick up WLS on my radio in the backseat of Dad's car. I knew then I was almost home and my homesickness was over.Thanks for being my friend over the airwaves Larry and for all the memories you didn't even know you provided me and thousands of other teenagers thru out your career. RIP, you deserve it God Speed.
My Dad used to call me in the evening, laughing,"did you hear Uncle Lar and Lil' Timmy this morning ?
Dad died last year,age 90, still re-calling the cat causing a fire by peeing in the electrical outlet.
Unc' Lar brought much joy to so many.
Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your beloved Larry. May the healing gift of time give you memories of life to fill the lonely places of your heart. I remember you from our Lutheran church in Palatine and the amusing yet loving stories of life with Larry.
Loved growing up listening to you Uncle Lar... R.I.P. Larry Lujack. Sincere condolences to family.
Fare thee well Uncle Lar. You were one of a kind.I watch reruns of "Animal Stories" whenever I need to laugh. Thank you Larry. RIP
Loved listening to him, he will be missed.
I am so sorry to hear about Lar's passing and the Lujack family's loss is my loss too. To this fan formerly living in northern Indiana he brought smiles with his "Clunk Letter of the Day". I remember him labeling Tammy Wynette a psychedelic cowgirl, his St. Valentines Day Address in 68, his opinion of communists and his good nature attack on Chris Stevens because Chris owned 1 Corvette and for the same money Lar owned 2 Mustangs. What a joy he was to all of his fans.
and "I LOVE YOU"...how I loved that he closed his show with those words...RIP
Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.
You were a big part of my childhood. Will remember you forever.
RIP Larry Lujack. I started listening to Mr. Lujack at age 14 while growing up in Central Illinois. You gave so many people fun radio with so many laughs. RIP.
Thanks for all the fond memories "Uncle Larry" Rest in Peace
i remember larry, dex card and dick bionde, all are past legends, my sympath to the lujack family. the nation has lost another treasure
How we loved Uncle Lar & Li'l Tommy in the mornings on our way to school. He was a pioneer in the radio field. My prayers are with his family and friends.
'old Uncle Lar' brought me many, many laughs - I was thrilled to hear a letter I wrote to him 'slam-dunked' on the show one morning ... God bless you, sir
Rest in peace Uncle Lar... you were and still are the best!
Sincere condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Lujack. I remember listening to him on WLS many years ago. May the God of all comfort be with you during this time.
