In Loving Memory of Richard (Dick) Luxner

posted Dec 30, 2014, 7:51 AM by Randall Stow
It is with great sadness that I have learned of the passing of Dick Luxner. Dick was a wonderful man and a great library supporter and will be deeply missed by all who were blessed to have known him.

Having been a librarian himself, Dick was always available to help out the Randall  library. In the last couple of years he had been volunteering to help with the library's "tutoring center"  making a positive impact on kids and forming bonds between the generations. Dick had an active mind and was a wealth of information, and it always made my day when I could hear his voice out at the Circulation Desk and knew that he would soon be stopping by my office to talk about the great books he had discovered, or hear about changes in library services that he felt I should know about. One of my best memories as Library Director was the day that, in thanks for his volunteer help with the tutoring center, I purchased lunch for him and Dick and I had a chance to sit in the back room, sharing a meal as I listened to him tell me about his life, his love of learning and watch his face light up as he talked about his beloved wife, children and grandchildren. Dick lived a full and impressive life and I will deeply miss him.

For those who were blessed to have known Dick and would like to make a donation in his name you can do so by sending your donation to the Eighth Air Force Historical Society, P.O. Box 956, Pooler GA 31322.

I would like to take this opportunity to pass my condolences on to Ann Luxner and to Dick's beloved children and grandchildren,.I am sure that they miss Dick very much, and I hope that they can be comforted by the fact that Dick leaves behind the example of a life well lived that will reach out through the generations to come.
