Lukowicz, Leo J. (16 JAN 1920 – 21 FEB 1966)

Leo J. Lukowicz, 46, owner and operator of the Lukowicz Photo Studio at Colby since 1947, died of a heart attack Monday afternoon at New Orleans, La., where he and Mrs. Lukowicz have been vacationing.

Reports said he was driving a car when the attack occurred, and that the vehicle halted after striking a parked car.

Services will be conducted Friday at the Lulloff Funeral Home in Colby. Rev. John B. Pinion will officiate. Burial will be made in the Colby Memorial Cemetery.

Mr. Lukowicz was born Jan. 16, 1920 in Colby, and had lived here his entire life except for three years of service in the U.S. Navy during World War II.

His marriage to Tess Pillow Vidrien took place June 6, 1946, at Reno, Nev. They had made their home in Colby since August 1947, when he took over his father’s photograph studio, established in 1901.

Among the survivors mourning his loss is a brother, John Lukowicz, of Owen.
