Jule was born June 3, 1939 in Clinton, Iowa the son of August and Grace (Bos) Luckritz. He was a 1957 graduate of Clinton High School and also a graduate of Clinton Community College, earning his two year associates degree. He was united in marriage to Wilma Petersen On February 9th, 1961.

Jule served in the U.S. Army from 1962 to 1964.

After 38 years, he retired from the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad.

He was a member of the United Transportation Union Local 316 and N. A. R. V.R.E. unit #67.

Jule was a very active member of Saint Paul Lutheran Church performing duties as a lector, usher, greeter, rang the church bells and sang solos at various church services. He had many passions in life, one of which was singing both in the Church choir and RiverChor — the gateway area’s premier chorus.

His other passion was volunteering for various groups such as the Clinton Historical Society, and a board member of Soaring Eagle Nature Center in Clinton. Jule also volunteered for mobile meals and along with his wife would bake and prepare food for his many friends and the less fortunate. He also volunteered time to tutor children as part of Adult and Youth Tutoring in Clinton.

At the end of the day he always found time to enjoy the outdoors and nature; he loved fishing, gardening, taking care of his pets at home as well as nature’s pets outside — caring for birds, rabbits and squirrels. He will be greatly missed by all of those who knew him.
