Dale Henry Lutterman was born January 14, 1958, in Worthington, MN, the son of Henry and Marcella (Hieronimus) Lutterman. Dale worked during high school and found he enjoyed being a mechanic and detailing cars. It became his career. Dale lived in Villard for 20 years where he opened and operated a detail and body works shop. While in Villard he also was a proud member of the fire department and first responders. In 2000, Dale moved to the Pillager area and began working at Always Available Towing. In addition, he was a great help to Alison’s parents on their farm – where he could fix most everything.

Dale enjoyed his job – and had a true passion for mechanics. He liked to go to mud-runs and four-wheeling. He was an outdoorsman who camped and gardened. He cherished times he could spend with his family and friends.

He will be missed by the love of his life and soul-mate of 12 years, Alison Groothuis; his mom, Marcella Lutterman; children, Lisa (Jermaine Holmes) Lutterman, of AZ, Emma (Nick) Lutterman, of AZ, and Thomas Lutterman, of AZ; granddaughter, Aniya Holmes; step-children, Ryan Steinhofer, Ashley Steinhofer, and Amber Steinhofer; siblings, Gailyn (Sharon) Lutterman, Byron (Vicki) Lutterman, Nancy (Luther) Olson, and Wayne (Janet) Lutterman; Alison’s parents, Randolph and Margaret Groothuis; Alison’s sisters, Yolanda Hock and Cindy VanWell; and many nieces, nephews, family and friends. He was preceded in death by his father, Henry; brother, Gerald; and grandparents, Tenges and Emma Lutterman and Chris and Jenny Hieronimus.
