Allen Luebke

1952 - 2024

Allen Robert “Uncle” Luebke was promoted to angel May 10, 2024.

He was born January 27, 1952 in Rogers City to Robert and Mary (Wojtowicz) Luebke.

Allen started his life in Metz then moved to Rogers City and graduated from Rogers City High School in 1971. In 1972 he was granted an invitation from the Federal Government to join the Army of the United States, he accepted. After being stationed in the United States, he was deployed to Europe. His last stop was Germany. After 12 years, he received a full medical discharge due to Macular Degeneration. After being home for a short period of time, he returned to Germany and opened a book store. After two years he returned home. Allen eventually built a home in Metz where he raised a garden, chickens and ducks. He shared what he grew with friends and family as well as one pumpkin with a porcupine. He enjoyed woodworking and leather crafting. A person’s life cannot be summed up in a few short paragraphs, but we who know him can remember him and speak of him.

He is survived by his goofy dog, Howdy; his cat Irving, also known as the unloved slob; sister, Dawn (Ron) Strzelecki; sister-in-law, Brenda Luebke; many nieces and nephews, and would like to thank Aaron (Cara) Rose of assisting with his final months.

Those promoted to angel before him are: mother and father; younger brother, Timothy; and two dogs Sapphire and Gretchen.

Friends may visit at St. Peter Lutheran Church in Metz on Saturday, May 18th from 2 p.m. through time of his funeral at 3 p.m. with Pastor David Clayton officiating. Rogers City VFW Post 607 will offer a military tribute immediately following.

No flowers please, a memorial to the Atlanta Humane Society or St. Peter Lutheran Church would be appreciated. No after shave or perfume to be worn at the funeral due to severe sensitivity to fragrances of close loved ones.
