Emeriti Association of Ferris State University
Who Are We?
The Ferris State University Emeriti Association consists of faculty, staff and administrators who have been granted emeriti status under Ferris Board of Trustees policy.
We serve as a professional and social organization for our members. Retired faculty members from any division of Ferris are automatically considered emeriti. Others may be granted emeriti status by the Ferris president and Board of Trustees.
It is with great sadness that the Emeriti Association Board of Directors announces the passing today of one of our longest-serving directors, Walt Luecke. Walt served for many years as our Social Chair, and he worked tirelessly to ensure that all of our events were fun, as well as flawless. Who will ever forget that endless list of funny jokes and stories that he would read to us at our gatherings? Walt’s humor was always quick and well-timed, no matter what subject was on the agenda at our monthly board meetings. I can hear him now, saying “See, I told you so,” because he joked at almost every meeting - with a twinkle in his eyes - that there was only one way off the board. We will miss this humor and also his wisdom, his wonderful event skills and most of all, his friendship.
Walt’s obituary with the details of his service on Tuesday, March 27, can be found at this link: http://www.mohnkefuneralhome.com/obituary/walter-luecke
