March 4, 1955 – Calgary, Alberta
Thursday, March 14, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta
On Thursday, March 14, 2019, after 64 years of living with a great sense of humour, cooking, classic rock, dancing, and fixing cars and being the best friend, father, and husband and slave to the cats and dogs, we said goodbye to Terry Lukacs. He was a gentle giant with a heart as big as he was and will be missed by his loving wife and soulmate Susan and his daughter McKenzie who was his pride and joy.
Terry was born in Calgary and passed away peacefully at the Foothills Medical Centre. He grew up in the Springbank area and resided there his entire life. He was a natural mechanic from a young age and there was nothing he couldn’t fix or drive. His passions were LS6 Chevelles, muscle cars, big blocks, speed and if it wasn’t a Chevy with a stick shift, it wasn’t worth driving. He ran his own business, Terry Lukacs Automotive Service Centre Ltd, until he retired.
Terry is survived by his brother and sister-in-law John and Elisa, and numerous relatives. He was predeceased by his parents, Miady and Joe Lukacs and his brother Harvey Lukacs.
