I would like to express my deepest condolences to the family of Dr. Lutes. I regret not knowing about his passing. Dr. Lutes was my adviser while I was a wildlife major at La. Tech and I had many courses uder him. He was an excellent teacher. Sincerely, Eddie Grafton

As a Wildlife Conservation and Management major at LA TECH from 1968-1972, Dr. Lutes was my favorite professor. He was the best teacher/instructor I encountered at Tech. He covered material clearly and concisely. There was never any question about material that could be on a test. Only information he discussed in class was subject to testing at any moment during the quarter. He was also my advisor and led me toward beneficial courses, helped me obtain a summer job related to wildlife management, encouraged me, and advised me to seek a graduate degree. My sympathy is extended to his family. He will always be one of the greatest persons I have known.
