By on November 9, 2016

Vincent R. Luta, 68, of Hopeland, came to rest when his life energy changed forms, releasing into the cosmos, on Oct. 29.

Vince’s spirit took human form in Mount Carmel; he was the first child of the late Vincent and Agnes Luta.

Vince spent his formative years in the City of Lancaster and graduated from Lancaster Catholic in 1966. He attended the Berks Campus of the Pennsylvania State University after high school, where he was introduced to hill climbs and bought his first sports car, his prized 1959 Triumph TR3.

He shared 46 years of marriage with his wife, Lynn, and was a dedicated employee at Eastern Drillers Manufacturing until he retired three years ago.

Vince was a compassionate, gentle soul who loved growing vegetables in his garden and always had a few “remodeling” projects going on at any given time. He loved seeing live music, with an especially fond attraction for rock and roll, and was known to shed a tear and get goosebumps when the notes hit him just right. Vince was a lover of nature, spending countless weekends camping with family and friends, and was a dedicated cat-lover and care taker.

He was an activist and strong advocate for clean energy, always keeping the future of his family as the priority in his life. More than anything in the world, Vince loved spending time with friends and family, and especially his grandkids, the favorite one being the one he was with at that moment in time.

In addition to his wife, Lynn, Vince is survived by his three kids: Nathan, husband to Amber; Ian, husband to Lori; and Kendra, wife to Kevin. He is also survived by four grandchildren: Lennox, Ellis, Eleanor, and Harper; and three siblings, Fran, Diana, and Christine.

In lieu of flowers, please give great big hugs to those you love, send positive energy out into the universe and keep on rockin’ in the free world.
