Cecil Whig - - OBITUARIES -

Al­bert Louis Luff, of Ch­e­sa­peake City, MD, passed away on Oc­to­ber 8, 2016. He was born, one of eleven chil­dren, on June 27, 1927 in Lin­coln Univer­sity, PA to the late Ar­ley and Elsie Walls Luff.

He worked as a young man in a gro­cery store in the Ox­ford area and grad­u­ated from Ox­ford High school in 1945. He then joined the Army Air Corps and served in Ja­pan dur­ing the Ja­panese Oc­cu­pa­tion.

Af­ter leav­ing the ser­vice, he re­turned to the Ox­ford area where he worked at sev­eral jobs and mar­ried Ella Nieweg in 1950. He and Ella then moved to the Ch­e­sa­peake City and op­er­ated the Cameron’s Snack Bar lun­cheonette on Main Street in Elk­ton.

In 1953, Al­bert be­came a life in­sur­ance sales­man in the tri state area. As the fam­ily grew, in 1956, he and Ella moved to a small farm just out­side Ch­e­sa­peake City where he could raise his fam­ily and horses.

Af­ter re­tir­ing from the in­sur­ance busi­ness in 1985, Al­bert worked for Ch­e­sa­peake Pub­lish­ing Com­pany. He first worked to set up Ce­cil Whig’s home de­liv­ery ser­vice, and then be­came a courier de­liv­er­ing pub­li­ca­tions through­out the tri state area. He re­tired in 2007 from the news­pa­per busi­ness. Al­bert was also the cus­to­dian for Trin­ity United Methodist Church for 30 years, where he was a life­long mem­ber, and also a mem­ber of the lo­cal VFW.

In ad­di­tion to be­ing an avid horse­man who raised and rode quar­ter horses, Al­bert loved gardening and hunt­ing. He en­joyed tak­ing mem­bers of his ex­tended fam­ily out on the Ch­ester River for a day of trot­line crab­bing. He was able to take very spe­cial trips to dude ranches through­out the US with each of his chil­dren. With a keen and sharp mem­ory, he was quite the Civil War buff. His love of singing was ex­hib­ited at church, other func­tions, and most lov­ingly to his wife, chil­dren, grand­chil­dren, and great grand­chil­dren.

Al­bert is sur­vived by his wife of 66 years, Ella Nieweg Luff, his chil­dren: Brad Luff, Doug Luff and wife Con­nie, Carol Biggs and hus­band Gary, Kathy Vaughan and hus­band Dale, Matt Luff and wife Sheri, Nancy Nickerson and hus­band Jeff. He is also sur­vived by six­teen grand­chil­dren; Daniel Luff, Kim­berly Perkins, Brian Luff, Amanda Lau­r­intsen, Ali­cia Luff, Alexan­der Luff, Sean Sei­ther, An­drew Sei­ther, Wil­liam Vaughan, Eric Luff, Joseph Nickerson, Marissa Wheeler, Samuel Nickerson, and Matthew Nickerson, eight great grand­chil­dren; his sis­ter, Cather­ine Viars and his life­long friend Joe Cham­ber­lain.

In ad­di­tion to his par­ents and sib­lings, he was pre­ceded in death by his grand­sons Joshua Luff and Timmy Nickerson.
