OBITUARY - LEE "LUKE" COMER

Lee "Luke" Comer, son of Fred and Edna (BROOMER) COMER was born July 16, 1927 in Talmadge, Iowa. He departed from this life at the V.A. Hospital in Des Moines, Iowa at the age of 72 years, 11 months and 18 days on July 4, 2000.

He grew up as a farm boy in South Central Iowa. He attended Kellerton high school until October, 1945, when he served 18 months in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Japan. After his discharge he worked for John Deere in Ankeny, Iowa and Boeing Aircraft in Wichita, Kansas where he and Betty KASTER were united in marriage by Rev. Floyd B. DAVIDSON.

They made their home in Kellerton, Iowa for most of the next 26 years and moved to Clarinda, Iowa in 1979 where they resided until his death. Lee was self-employed and a general contractor until he retired.

Lee enjoyed small game hunting, playing cribbage and pool with friends and family. He loved his family and adored his grandchildren. He was a volunteer fireman for the Kellerton Fire Department and was a member of the Mount Ayr American Legion. He loved reminiscing with old friends and family. Lee was baptized in the Christian faith during his stay in the V.A. Hospital.

Lee was preceded in death by his parents; four brothers: Larry, Clair, Joe and Elvyn in infancy; three sisters in infancy, Darlene, Alice and Edna; and his first grandson, Chase COMER.

He is survived by his wife Betty; six children: Reta (husband Chris) HATFIELD of Shorewood, Illinois, Larry (wife Susan) of Grimes, Rhonda (husband Brian) WHITNEY of Cassville, Missouri, Lori (husband Tony) WIELE of Milo, Iowa, Terry (wife Lory) of Linden, Iowa and Linda (husband Jim) YOUNG of Clarinda, Iowa; 13 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren and many family and friends. He will truly be missed by all of us.

Funeral services were held Friday, July 7, 2000 at the Wilson-Watson & Armstrong Funeral Home in Mount Ayr, Iowa with Rev. Michael DRUHL officiating. Musicians were Ginny EIGHMY and Richard JACKSON.

Casket bearers were Mark COMER, Roger COMER, Ron FOLAND, Christian WHITNEY, Rodney ADAMS and Robbie WEETER. Honorary pallbearers were Leonard WEETER, Rick COMER, Marvin WEETER, Kyle COMER, Mark CARSON and Mike CARSON. Military graveside rites were performed by Ringgold Post #172 American Legion.
