Luther Gatheright was born on March 31, 1948 in Marks, Mississippi to the union of Les Gatheright Sr. and Arlethia Gatheright. Luther was the 9th child born into their union. Luther was a jack of all trades, yet he still remained a strong, spiritual, reliable man. Out of all Luther's trades he had an exceptional fondness for and
fondness for gambling and barbering. More than anything, Luther loved being a devoted dedicated father to his only child Star Louise Gatheright in which he called Precious.

On September 21, 2012 God called Luther home to reunite with his mother; Arlethia, his father; Les Sr., his sister; Francis and his brother; Levi all of which welcomed Luther at the heavenly gates.

Luther leaves in his legacy his wife; Robin, his daughter; Star, two granddaughters; Iyonna and Annoyia, four sisters; Arlesly, Inez, Dorothy (Lloyd) and Easter, six brothers; Johnny (BJ), Jimmy (Taurus), Wayne, Les Jr., Jerry and Joseph (Rita), a host of nieces, nephews, great nieces, nephews, and friends. Luther will truly be missed though his legacy will continue live on through his daughter and granddaughters and will be remembered by all those who knew him. Luther touched many lives and will continue to rest peacefully in all of our hearts.
