Richard M. Luker

March 18, 1944 — March 23, 2024

Uniontown

Dr. Richard Luker, age 80, went home to be with the Lord on March 23, 2024.

Born on March 18, 1944 in Massillon, Ohio, he lived in Uniontown.  Richard graduated from Kent State (B.S. in Education), Virginia State (Master of Science), and the University of Akron (Doctor of Education). 

For 31 years at Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy (CVCA), Richard dedicated his life to teaching young people and igniting their passion for the wonders of God’s creation. He loved God’s word and brought that love to leading Bible studies, teaching classes, and preaching sermons; Richard also enjoyed sailing, photography, and genealogy.

Richard was preceded in death by his parents Donald and Mae Maxine Luker.  He is survived by his wife of 55 years Vicki (Drosenos) Luker; sons Matthew (and Kimberly) Luker and Marc Luker; daughter Melissa Luker; grandchildren Rebekah Luker, Ella Luker, Maya Luker, Elliot Riederer, Joshua Riederer, and Sebastian Riederer; and sister Cathy (Luker) Stanton.
