|Let the memory of James be with us forever|
James J. Lueckenhoff was born March 9, 1929 at West Point to Fred and Catherine (Meiergerd) Lueckenhoff. He attended Guardian Angels Catholic School and lived most of his life within half a block of the home where he was born and raised. Jim served in the US Army for two years during the Korean Conflict and was stationed in Alaska. On May 24, 1958, Jim married Joan Kloke at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. The couple lived in West Point, raised their children Mike and Mary Jo. Jim worked as a painter and wood finisher. He took pride in his work having learned the craft from Master Painter Frank Stuholt of Stuholt Painting. Their work was well known in both new and old homes, area churches, St. Mary’s Rectory and Convent. Wood-finishing was his specialty. He was always ready for a visit, peppered with his wit and humor, or to lend anyone a helping hand.
Jim was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Arthur Mack American Legion Post #70 and was a Past Commander. For 32 years he served on the West Point Volunteer Fire Department, Company 2.
