To the family of Luther Fleming we send our condolences to you, we knew him a long time and he always had a smile on his face.

Carmen and Christy, What an unexpected surprise for me. I so looked forward to beeping and waving to him on the bench under his tree behind the garage. I will never forget the times from when I was a runt stopping at the garage with Brian, dad and Earl. Syracuse will always be unforgettable, especially since the burn is still in the tailgate carpet. ( Luke laughing like hell). The steak runs up there. Great times. Riding snowmobiles, etc. Everittstown has lost a great man. May he rest in peace. Greg Heiser
