Robert F. Lutzke, I

    My father Robert Lutzke was a piano technician for about 30 years before becoming disabled by a stroke. When he moved to the Big Rapids area he and a childhood friend formed a band that played in some of the local night spots. He married Lois Pettit, a legal secretary for an attorney (William T. McElwain, former Chicago Bear football player, and teacher/coach at Ferris State University). Lois is the daughter of Walter Pettit (click this link for the Pettit family history). Walter Pettit and his sons operated an auto dealership for Oldsmobile and other GM products.

   Robert also has another son, Robert F. Lutzke, II who works at a local electronics store.
