Luther Paul Germundson, 53

Luther Paul Germundson, 53, passed away suddenly Monday April 4, 2011.  Luther was born on March 9, 1958 in Karlstad, MN.  He was a consummate car guy starting with H. E. Everson Parts Co., in Karlstad.  In 1986 he followed his dream and moved to Arizona where he met the love of his life, Debbie Snyder.  After 3 ½ years of romance they were married on August 11, 1990, in La Jolla, CA.  Luther worked at Supershuttle and Autozone, before finding his true calling in auto sales with Toyota.  He was recognized for his excellence in sales and customer service, winning The Toyota Sales Society Award in 2007, consistently praised for all of his achievements.  He retired in 2008, leaving a void in a dealership that will never be filled in the same way.  Everyone who met Luther loved him.  He had a personality that was bigger than life and a laugh to go along with it.  One look from those sparkling eyes and infectious smile and you instantly felt you could trust him.  A consummate optimist, with a heart overflowing with pride and love for his family.  This is the Luther that all were blessed to know.  He loved to play golf and was darn good at it.  To say he was passionate about Cardinals Football was an understatement.  He will be deeply missed by all who knew him, and will live on in their hearts forever.  He is survived by his wife of 20 years, Deborah, his sons, Barret and Dallas (wife Briana) and grandsons, Luca and Zachary Germundson; parents, Loren and Lola; brother, Neil (Shannon); sisters, Lori Hetrick and Ann Wilson (husband Dean); nieces and nephews, Aubree, Julia, Nevada, Sadie, Aquillon, Devin, Dylan, Nikki, Ariana, Colton, Siara and his furry, four-legged daughter, Maya.  Services will be held at 10AM, Saturday, April 9, 2011, Resurrection Lutheran Church, 4930 E. Greenway Rd., Scottsdale. In lieu of flowers, an account is being established with Bank of America in memory of Luther.  The proceeds of your generosity will go to offset funeral expenses, and the remainder will be donated to the Cardinals Charities.  Please contact Bank of America with any questions.
