Pancreas Cancer Web
On January 25th at 12 noon Danny Luttrell died from Pancreatic cancer. He was
51 years old, and the son of Adalee Luttrell who at age 92 watched her son
battle this horrible disease and lose his battle.He was the father of Andrew
age 25, and Ashley, age 20. He loved birds and golf and skiing.He ad a
wonderful smile that we will never forget. Danny worked for the National
Computer Center (IRS) in Martinsburg,WV.He was a senior systems analyst
there. He was employed there for 26 years, taking early retirement in Nov.
2002, after Doctors at JHH suggested that he do this. Danny was loved by all
of his friends, and co-workers at the IRS center. There were over 400 people
at his service. He became ill in Oct. 2002 with vague complaints of
indigestion and some pain. He was not definatively diagnosed until Dec. 26th
2002. He had lost over 30 pounds and was having increasing pain,severe
shortness of breath, and required hospitalization. He spent the remainder of
his time on the oncology unit at City Hospital. I am his ex-wife, and a
R.N.,and I am h and was his caregiver, as was my husband, who is a Hospice
nurse. Danny was an incredible person and was truly loved by all who knew
him. His children miss him TERRIBLY.I offer my heartfelt sympathy to anyone
who has to be involved in any way with this thief of human life, this
horrible disease. May god have mercy on us and bless us as we fight the good
fight, and never forget the lessons learned here.
GODSPEED DANNY - WE SHALL NEVER FORGET YOU!
