WWII Veteran John Lukach May 12, 1926 – Dec. 30, 2019

San Andreas, CA...John Lukach passed away with family by his side on Dec. 30, 2019. He was 93 years old, and resided in San Andreas. John was born in Forest Hill PA. He worked as a printing machine mechanic, before enlisting in the Navy in May of 1944, during WWII. John spent his Navy years as a seaman 2nd class, doing MP shore patrol in Casablanca and Algeria. He served on both the USS Tillman and the USS Converse. While serving, his older brother, George, was killed in Army action in Europe. John served 2 years, and then returned to printing in New Jersey.





He enjoyed flying and got his small plane license, enjoying jaunts up and down the Eastern seaboard. He survived a harsh, 2 year bout of tuberculosis, and then married his beloved sweetheart Sylvia in 1955. They had 2 children, and in 1969 moved to San Jose, California where he continued working as a printer foreman until retiring in 1988. John and Sylvia relocated to Montana in 1991, returning to CA in 2000, to be closer to their children.

John’s interests included photography, travel, cars, trains and planes. He loved to give, and once he discovered a persons likes, he keep them supplied – whether it be a loaf of bread, a favorite candy or magazine. John is survived by his son, George (Jackie) Lukach; daughter Susan (Mark) Souza; and two grandsons: John William, and Jace Paul. He was predeceased in death by his loving wife of 51 years, Sylvia Lukach.

A funeral service will be held for John at San Andreas Memorial Chapel on Sat. Jan. 11, 2020 at 2:30 p.m., with burial at Peoples Cemetery to follow. Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to Adventist Health Hospice of Sonora CA.
