Luhrel was born March 6, 1961 in Lampasas, Texas. He grew up Houston, but spent much of his childhood and adulthood in Lometa, Texas on the beloved family ranch. He never met a stranger, and found joy in doing for others.

Grandchildren Ainsley Leggett of Lorena and Mason Leggett of Robinson and great-grandchild Hazel Lea Norden of Lorena, nephews Eric and William Kirchner, and step-sons Jimmy, Bobby,  and  Gilbert, along with many cousins and friends.

He was employed at numerous places throughout his life as an automotive parts dealer with his last position being at Bird Kultgen Ford. He was a gun enthusiast and enjoyed hunting, fishing, disc golf, and an avid collector of the best of anything from junk shops.  He left a lasting impression on all those whose paths crossed his and will be deeply missed.
