Gerald Lyle Lutman, 86, of Carrington, ND, passed away after a long battle with cancer on January 21, 2019, in Phoenix, AZ with family at his side.
Gerald was born August 4, 1932, in Edmunds, ND, to Charles and Mamie (Rue) Lutman. He enlisted in the Navy the summer of 1950 and served in the Korean War during his 4 years. Gerald met Lois Presser in April, 1955, at a local dance and the two became one August 28, 1956.
In 1956, Gerald began working with Donny Jensen in the house moving business, only later to buy him out in 1963 and rename the business to Carrington House Moving, he semi-retired in 1997; however, Gerald could be found out at Carrington House Moving on a daily basis until 2014, due to his health.
His hobbies included hunting, fishing, traveling the world, gardening, farming and ranching. He enjoyed spending time with his family, especially the yearly family reunions on his childhood farm. He was an avid player of pinochle and cribbage, often times claiming he only lost because someone cheated. He had served in the local chapter of the VFW, the Military Order of the Cootie, the American Legion, and the Trinity Lutheran Church, where he was an active member.
