My Father, Courtney Lubbes 8/20/1921 – 8/28/2009 Part 2


I am still working on dad’s memorial info and also trying to tie up all the loose ends involved when someone dies. In the meantime, here is a link to several pictures I’ve put up on flickr and that we showed at the memorial service on a big screen behind the pastor. Also, this is the picture I used in the obituary for dad. It really exemplifies his joyful spirit and his love of music. You can click on it for a bigger image.

Also, here are some nice entries from the guestbook at D.O. McCombs about dad.

The world has lost a precious gem with Uncle Court’s passing. My mother and he were always very close. Court use to tell me that people always thought they were twins when they were children. I will always remember him as loving, kind, and vivacious. He could always make me smile. Uncle Courtney loved to play his fiddle and I know that he is playing beautiful music in heaven now.

For several years, Courtney played his violin at Good Shepherd for worship services. It was always a pleasure to have him share his love of music and his Christian faith through a simple and elegant hymn presentation. May God bless you during this time of loss.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Susan and Jill, and with all the family. Courtney was our “fun uncle” and he will always be remembered as living life to the fullest. Take care and may God bless you all.
