Obituary for Henry O. Luscher

Henry O. Luscher
Henry O. Luscher, 92, of Gilford, NH., died November 21, 2017, at his home, after a brief period of failing health.

Born in Tauffelen, Bern, Switzerland on November 13, 1925, he was the son of Otto and Rosa (Meyer) Luscher.

Henry grew up in Switzerland and attended Swiss schools where he graduated from the Institute of Onken, in Switzerland, with a degree in engineering. He traveled to England between 1949 and 1951, to further his engineering education and to learn the English language.

After coming to the United States in October of 1952, Henry worked for twenty-three years as an engineer representing the Cosa Corporation, in New York. He resided in Wayne, NJ, for over twenty years. In 1976, Henry moved his family to a place that reminded him of his home land, and settled in Gilford, NH. Henry started his own business, Swisset Tool Company, which he operated with his family for over twenty-five years until his retirement in 2003.

Henry enjoyed being involved with the Christian Service Brigade, in New Jersey, and the Northern Frontier Camp in Indian Lake, NY., mentoring boys in their Christian walk.

Henry was a World War II veteran in the Swiss Military.

Henry was predeceased by his son, Peter, and his brothers, Paul and Werner.

Henry’s love for the Lord was only equaled by his love and devotion to his family. Travels to Switzerland, hikes thru the Adirondacks and White Mountains, and skiing in VT and NH with his family brought him great joy. He provided a wise and strong example of how to live having the love of Jesus in his heart.

Henry is survived by his wife of sixty-three years, Annemarie (Schiesser) Luscher, of Gilford, daughter, Sylvia McCarthy and her husband Kevin of Gilford, son, Paul Luscher and his wife Heidi of Holderness, his grandchildren, Ashley, Brianna and Mariah Luscher and Morgan McCarthy, as well as several nieces and nephews of Switzerland.

Funeral services will be held in the Evangelical Baptist Church, 50 Washington St., Lakeport, on Tuesday, Nov. 28th, at 10am. The Rev. Brian Green, Pastor, will officiate. Burial will follow in the Pine Grove Cemetery, Gilford.
