Dennis Luhmann

June 9, 1944 — September 1, 2023

Langdon, ND

Dennis Luhmann, 79, of Langdon, ND, passed away from a tragic accident on Friday, September 1, 2023, at Sanford Medical Center in Fargo, ND, surrounded by his family.

Dennis was born June 9, 1944, in Langdon, ND, to Walter and Alverda (Schrader) Luhmann. He grew up on a farm near Loma, graduated from Alsen High School, and went on to Wahpeton State School of Science, where he graduated with a degree in Architectural Drafting and Engineering. He married Barbara Johnston on July 21, 1967, in Langdon. They spent time in Spokane, WA, where he gained additional building experience and then returned to Langdon to raise their family, where he lived for the remainder of his life. Throughout his life, Dennis was a member of Emmanuel Evangelical Church, New Hope Fellowship, and First Baptist Church.

There was no stranger to Dennis, and he often said “the more the merrier.” When he wasn’t welcoming people into his home, he was an adventurer who loved to travel, see new places, and make new friends. He loved to be outside either building, farming, or fixing at the lumberyard.

He is survived by his loving wife, Barbara, and his nine children and their families: Dwight (and Amy): Tate, Keira; John (and Korinda): Anne, David, Jonathan, Phinehas, Thomas, Peter, Ruth; Jed: Aidan, Isabelle, Caroline, Wyatt; Virginia (and Seth Runner): Noah, Ava, Silas, Sarah, Ivy; Reggie (and Courtney): Keaton, Chase, Mason, McKenzie, Avery, Emma; Andrew (and Audrey): Benjamin, Samuel, Lucy, Nathan, Joshua, Karena, Daniel, Ruby; Jordan (and Heidi): Jack, Lydia, Henry; Brooke (and Eric Riggs): Claire, Bethany; and Gretchen (and Kyle Stroner): Wesley, Willem, Baby. He is also survived by his siblings: LuEtta (and Stephen) Benson, Dale (and Pam) Luhmann, ArvaDell (and Kevin) Sharp; his brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law: Thomas Bentley, Roger and Carol Johnston, Harold and Jann Johnston; and many beloved nieces, nephews, and great-nieces/nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents; sister LaVerne; and brothers and sisters-in-law: Lloyd and Joyce Johnston, Marvin and Jean Moen.

The funeral service for Dennis will be at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 9, 2023, with a visitation from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Friday, September 8, 2023, all at Emmanuel Evangelical Church in Langdon, ND. Burial will be at Lebanon Cemetery in Langdon.
