Randy Lutz Obituary, Death – Hummelstown, Pennsylvania, mourns the loss of a true community icon, Randy L. Lutz, who passed away on Sunday, August 6, 2023, at the age of 68. Surrounded by the love and warmth of his devoted family, Randy left this world at M.S. Hershey Medical Center, leaving behind a legacy of selfless service, laughter, and a spirit that touched the hearts of all who knew him.
Born on November 2, 1954, in the very heart of Hummelstown, Randy was the son of the late Elwood V. and Grace Rutter Lutz. He attended Lower Dauphin High School and embarked on a journey that would see him become a beloved figure within the community. Randy’s dedication to his work as a tool and die machinist at Tyco Electronics was only surpassed by his entrepreneurial spirit as the owner and operator of his cherished food truck, RK Food Wrecker.
But Randy’s impact extended far beyond his professional achievements; he was a devoted servant of the community he loved. A true pillar of Hummelstown, Randy dedicated an astounding 30 years to the Hummelstown Chemical Fire Company No. 1. His commitment to service was unparalleled, and he held the honorable positions of a former fire chief and lifetime member.
Beyond the firehouse, Randy’s dedication to his town was further evident through his 17 years of service on the Hummelstown Borough Council. He worked tirelessly, serving on various committees to contribute to the betterment of the community. His involvement also extended to the political arena, as he served as the Republican Committee Person.
Randy was a devout member of Trinity United Methodist Church, where he found joy in helping to run the soundboard. He was a man of diverse interests, finding solace in fishing, appreciating the thrill of drag racing, and enjoying the timeless tunes of classic rock. But perhaps Randy’s most cherished talent was his ability to bring joy and laughter to any gathering. His jokes, stories, and infectious humor made him the life of the party, leaving a trail of smiles wherever he went.
Above all, Randy held a special place in his heart for his family, especially his ten beloved grandchildren. His legacy of love, resilience, and community spirit lives on through them and all who had the privilege of knowing him. Randy is survived by his loving wife, Kerrin Marie Scott Lutz, his four children – Randy L. Lutz II, Ryan M. Lutz, Chad T. Lutz, and Joseph A. Scerbo – and his brother, Stewart D. Lutz.
He leaves behind a legacy that encompasses not only his family but also the countless lives he touched as a mentor, friend, and pillar of the community. A service to celebrate Randy’s life will be held on Friday, August 18, 2023, at 7 pm in the Hummelstown Chemical Fire Company No. 1. A time for family and friends to gather and remember Randy will be held earlier in the day, from 1 pm to 3 pm and from 5 pm until the time of the service.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests memorial contributions to be made to Trinity United Methodist Youth Group, a testament to Randy’s dedication to fostering the growth and development of the younger generation, much like he did throughout his life. As we bid farewell to Randy L. Lutz, we hold onto the memories of his boundless laughter, his unwavering commitment, and his genuine compassion. May his legacy inspire us to continue his tradition of community service, laughter, and spreading kindness to all corners of Hummelstown and beyond.
