Luther Kask

1954 - 2013 Obituary Condolences
Luther Raymond Kask, 59, died suddenly September 3, 2013, at his home on Sanibel Island, FL. He is survived by his mother, Marie G. Kask of Burlington, NC, his sister, Kristen Kask Robinson, and brother-in-law, Rob Robinson of Powell, OH. He is predeceased by his father, The Rev. Dr. Raymond H. Kask, who served for 23 years as pastor of Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Norwood. Luther was born on February 21, 1954 in Norwood and was educated in the Norwood schools, graduating from Norwood High School in 1972. It was his love for the water that drew him to Sanibel Island in 1978 where he opened and operated Sanibel Creative Tile Company in 1983 which was in existence until his death. He became a skilled yachtsman and enjoyed sailboat racing in local regattas along the coast from Tampa to Marco Island. Being an avid boater he also enjoyed sport fishing for tarpon, sailfish and marlin. He gave back to the community in many ways preferring to remain anonymous. He was a strong supporter of hospice and the local homeless shelters. One of his favorite and most notable acts was delivering turkeys to them at Thanksgiving and Christmas. A memorial graveside service will be held at 11:00 a.m. at Highland Cemetery in Norwood on November 2, 2013. Donations in Luther's memory may be given to Calumet Lutheran Ministries, P.O. Box 236, W. Ossipee, NH 03890 or to the Emmanuel Lutheran Church Steeple Fund, 24 Berwick St., Norwood, MA 02062. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Gillooly Funeral Home, 126 Walpole Street, Norwood, MA 02062. 781-762-0174. www.gilloolyfuneralhome.com
