Patrick Sr., Luther  
Luther Patrick Sr. Sept. 1, 1939 - Sept. 23, 2016 PLYMOUTH - Luther Patrick, 77, a blessed father of eight children, passed away the evening of Friday, September 23rd, 2016 of natural causes at Saint Joseph Hospital in Plymouth, Indiana. Luther was born to parents Homer & Opha “McCarty” Patrick on September 1st, 1939 in Salyersville, Kentucky. He was a member of the House of the Lord Church in Plymouth. Luther married the love of his life, Mildred Mae Allen of Knox; they met in North Judson. They married at Pilgrim Holiness (Methodist) Church in North Judson on October 6, 1957. Luther and Mildred celebrated 57 years of marriage. She preceded him in death on November 17th, 2014. From 1959 to 1968 Luther and Mildred brought eight children into the world. In 1973 he and Mildred moved the family to Plymouth. The children are the center of Luther's pride. The children: Candi, Stephen, Jerry, Mary, Luther Jr., Barbara, Janice, and David made a full house for Luther. He resided most of his life on Beerenbrook Street where he attended Pilgrim Gospel Light House Church, which he helped build in the 1970's, and was just a short walk away. Luther was very intent that his children learn to work. Early in his life, work was defined as laboring in potato and mint fields earning his wages as a young boy in Monterey, Indiana. He knew hard work and the reward it brings. After years of working for the foundry in Plymouth had passed, Luther worked further repairing shoes at a local shoe store, later working to keep clean the laundromat on Jefferson Street, and most recently he kept a youth center clean on Beerenbrook Street. The same street so many family Christmases were celebrated with Mildred. Luther enjoyed keeping things clean. In his words it would be “shining”. His version of clean would be washing the kitchen floor with Pine-sol by hand and never leaving a dirty dish wait long to be washed. Luther's car would always be shining, and if yours was clean he would say “you got it shining”. Luther was complimentary. He often told his daughters how pretty they were and his sons that they are looking good. He was a man that loved his family. He enjoyed gardening, piano, guitar, singing, and western movies. Summertime meant that his tomatoes would be lined up along the window sills of the house. His green beans would be getting canned and the giver inside of him would be sharing them with everyone. Luther taught himself how to play piano and guitar, they were his pick of instruments. A talent his boys came to enjoy along with him. His favorite song was “Go rest high on that mountain”, by Vince Gill. Luther welcomed even the hobo in his home for a meal. If you stood at his door and knocked, you could hear him say from within a far room of the home “come on in”. Luther always kept hot coffee ready for those who may stop in for a visit. It would humor Luther to get you to drink some coffee, whether you liked it or not. No matter what kind of guest or how short your stay in his home, you did not leave without a hug and a sincere thank you for coming by. Of course, before you left he would smile while asking “what's your hurry”. Then ask you to stay longer next time. He enjoyed company in his home all his life. Luther also worked for the kingdom of the Lord. He became an ordained minister in the service of Jesus Christ. He proudly walked out to be baptized in the local river. He set a strong example for his children and grandchildren to follow. He was known as “Paw” to his grandchildren. He was known to lay hands on his grandchildren to pray over their life. Luther has been seen giving testimony to the power of the Spirit and raising his hands to heaven. He experienced the death of a beloved son, David in 1998 and more recently his beloved wife, Mildred. Through those times Luther kept his faith. Luther committed himself to reading his bible and praying daily. He ran the race and has fought the good fight in this life. Now he has moved on to be with his Lord. Love, Family Luther is survived by his daughter, Candi (Terry) Norris of Syracuse, son, Stephen (Carrie) Patrick of Plymouth, son, Jerry (Marlene) Patrick of Knox, daughter, Mary (Anthony) Goheen of Winimac, son, Luther Patrick Jr. of South Bend, daughter, Barbara (Richard) VanWynsberghe of Rolling Praire, and daughter, Janice (Gregory) Howdeshell of Rochester. He is also survived by twenty grandchildren: Ken, Kristi, Mike, Josh, Taylor, April, Jeremiah, Candice, Sarah, Matthew, Jaquellyne, Christopher, Victoria, Erica, Brandon, Megan, Jonathon, Dean, Hannah and John David, and twenty-five great-grandchildren. Visitation will be Tuesday, September 27, 2017 from 4:00p.m.-8:00p.m. (EST) at Johnson-Danielson Funeral Home, 1100 N. Michigan St., Plymouth, IN. Funeral Services will be held at 1:00p.m. (EST) on Wednesday, September 28, 2017 at the House of the Lord Church, 16493 Old U.S. 30, Plymouth, with Rev. Gerald Allen officiating. Burial will follow services at Crown Hill Cemetery, Knox. A meal for friends and family will be held at the VFW, 1511 South Heaton St., Knox, IN following burial to celebrate the life of Luther Patrick.

Visitation for family and friends will be for two hours prior to the 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, September, 28, 2016 funeral service at Zimmerman-Inman Funeral Home, 1109 Lincolnway West in Osceola. Pastor Denny Olsen from the Adamsville Road Church of God will preside and burial will follow in Riverview Cemetery in South Bend. A native of South Bend, Vern was born to Nellie and Albert Peterson on August 19, 1928. He was a graduate of Central High School in 1947 and attended Gloria Dei Lutheran Church as a youth through his adulthood. In 1959, Mr. Peterson began working for Burcliff Industries/Hose Assemblies, Inc. in Mishawaka. He was a loyal employee for 40 years retiring in 1999. All through his life, Vern was a collector of many things including cameras, Studebaker memorabilia, and most predominately, antique fountain pens. He was well known in local auction circuits between Elkhart and St. Joseph counties. Mr. Peterson was also an aviation enthusiast. This is evident in the 2002 release of South Bend Remembered. Vern is one of the many features of this pictorial history book of South Bend from the turn of the century through the 1950's. He is pictured next to a fuselage, motor, and propeller of a P-40 airplane that Central High had the privilege to learn from in their shop class. He was very proud to be a part of this publication and cherished the history of his beloved hometown. Mr. Peterson is survived by his wife, Catherine Peterson; daughter, Cinda Bailey (Ron) of Elkhart; son, Gary Peterson of Lake Station; grandchildren, Angie Walters (Larry), and Andrew Cour (Tara) of LaPorte, and great-grandchildren, Alyssa Foster and Neala Cour. Vern was preceded in death by his beloved first wife and mother of his children, Marian Peterson, and two sisters, Evelyn Madison and Doris Roberts. The family of Mr. Peterson would like to request in addition to flowers, expressions of sympathy be made to the American Red Cross and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in honor of his legacy. Vern was a regular blood donor and understood the importance of what every donation meant.
