Michael William Luck, a man who found joy in his life whatever his circumstances, ran to meet his Lord the evening of Oct. 21, 2014. He had enjoyed 81 years of a life well - lived, despite challenges.

Born August 25, 1933 In Washington, D.C. to parents Harry Clayton Luck, an Irishman, and Lillian May Waters, a Liverpool lady, he is survived by his wife of 36 years, Sara McMillan Luck, sons, Michael Thomas Luck and Stephen Timothy Luck, daughter, Kimberly Ann Luck Hanniman, and grandchildren, Carina, Shannon, Shane and Colin.

He is also survived by Sara's children, Gerald McMillan, Mark McMillan, and Molly McMillan and their children who loved him as their own, Erik, Gerald, Mark 2, Cameron, Brit, Ethan and Titus.

A graduate of Subiaco Academy, a monastery in Paris, Arkansas, he was a three time Golden Gloves champion and an all star athlete. He attended the West Point Academy prep school and received a Congressional appointment to West Point. He then served 22 years in the Army Corp of Engineers attaining the rank of Major. Among many contributions, he served two tours in Vietnam, including participation in the Tet offensive.

Upon retirement from the military, he continued his engineering profession in civilian life, retiring in 1996 from the Houston Aviation Department.

He learned to love the First United Methodist church and the Seeker's Sunday class. He grew in his faith through his participation in many studies and particularly enjoyed the fellowship of the Tuesday morning men's bible breakfast.

A celebration of his life will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct.25, 2014 at the First United Methodist Church of Conroe. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in his name to his church, or to the Subiaco Abbey, 405 North Subiaco Ave., Subiaco, Ark. 72865, both of which were very important to Michael's life.
