Robert (Bob) Ellis Luttrell born November 27, 1927, in Urbana, Illinois to Lloyd Luttrell and Rachel Weaver, peacefully passed away at his home in Palm Harbor, Florida, on June 3rd, leaving behind his loving wife Penny Devin, four adult children – Wendy, Scott, Kevin and Jennifer Luttrell, two step children, Jennifer Roach and Jeremy Devin, 10 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. His family loved his wit and worldly advice in the form of both original and non-original quotes that have been passed down from one generation to the next. Bob’s education from both the University of Illinois and Northwestern University provided him the foundation for his successful career as a general contractor overseeing the construction of public buildings, private companies, and custom homes. He was a proud member of the Airborne in WWII and a true patriot. He was also committed to public service and volunteered his time and skills to the Park Board in Glen Ellyn, Illinois and to the Planning Commission in Ouray County, Colorado. Bob was an avid golfer and loved to play the Village Links in Glen Ellyn and Fairway Pines at his mountain home in Ridgway, Colorado for 12 years where at 8000 feet the thin air carried his ball the extra distance. Bob and Penny were world travelers and particularly enjoyed their trips to Ushuaia, South America, India, and their safari in Africa. The family will hold a “Celebration of Bob’s Life” in the Fall of 2022.
