G. Albert Lucke Jr. Custom home builder


Services for G. Albert Lucke Jr., a Baltimore-area house builder, will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Magothy United Methodist Church, 3703 Mountain Road in Pasadena.

Mr. Lucke, who was 74 and had lived in Sarasota, Fla., for the last two years, died of kidney failure two weeks ago at his home after a long illness.

He worked at the Lucke Construction Co. in Anne Arundel County, where he built custom houses until his retirement in 1980. He then became a self-employed home compliance inspector for the Veterans Administration, a job he held until 1989, when he and his wife moved to Florida.

The Baltimore native was a 1936 graduate of Forest Park High School and served in the Coast Guard Reserves during World War II.

Mr. Lucke was a member of the Shrine of Boumi Temple in Baltimore, the Glen Burnie Masonic Lodge 213, the Annapolis Yacht Club, building trade associations in Baltimore and the Sarasota Elks.

He is survived by his wife of 21 years, the former Eileen Schmidt; two sons, Fredrick L. Lucke of Chicago and George A. Lucke of Pasadena; a sister, Ella Louise Greenhood of Pasadena; and two brothers, William N. Lucke of Annapolis and Judge Robert N. Lucke Sr. of Severna Park.

The family suggested contributions to the National Kidney Foundation.
