Letter to Our Customers – Fall 2018

Letter to Our Customers – Fall 2018

Filed in Uncategorized by on September 24, 2018 0 Comments • views: 234

To Our Valued Friends and Customers,

As the sun starts to slowly fade in the sky and the trees paint their own colorful landscape, we notice the unmistakable aroma of fall in the air. The sweet smell which has the ability to take us back in time, helping us to remember fondly, youthful thoughts of rolling in the leaves and the familiar smell of them burning.

Unfortunately, this also begins to close another chapter in our own special book of memories on the lakes we are so fortunate to have and enjoy.

We at Luhrs Landing would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for making this season so wonderful. Although we still mourn the loss of our captain, new friendships and acquaintances have made this a special year for all of us here at Luhrs Landing.

As this boating season comes to an end, we kindly remind you of a few more chores to complete before we can rest by the fire and get lost in the aroma of the burning leaves and sip on a warm cup of apple cider.

Yes, that means that it is time for boat winterization and dock / hoist removal.

Please take a moment to fill out the linked form, so we can better help you with your chores. Then you can sit by the fire and enjoy the beautiful fall colors and let us worry about the rest.

Thank you,

We mourn the loss of one of our own

Timothy Lee Wellnitz, age 70, passed away at his Torch River home surrounded by family and friends. He was born Jan. 22, 1948 and sailed away May 2, 2018.

Tim grew up on the Mitchell Road farm in Blissfield, Michigan. Fishing, antiquing and working on classic cars were lifelong passions he pursued.

A gifted mechanical and electrical technician, it was well known that he could put his hand to anything and make it sing. Tim led Luhr’s Landing Marina on Torch River for 40 years and his reputation there for excellence will surely endure.
Tim was preceded in death by parents, Alton and Ethel (Beaverson); brother, Dan; and sister, Ann.

He is survived by daughter, Mattea (Johnson) Wellnitz and granddaughter Naya Johnson Wellnitz; stepdaughter, Nicolette (Bounting) Chaisson; and granddaughters McKenzie, Cassidy and Layni Chaisson.
In accordance with Tim’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 19, from 1-3 p.m. at The Torch Riviera.

Those wishing to express sympathy may consider a memorial donation in Tim’s name to The Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy at or send a check to 3860 N. Long Lake Rd. Suite D Traverse City, MI 49684.
Volunteer fireman, the one you called when stranded on the lake, Tim was a trusted and respected mentor to many, touching more lives than probably even he knew.

Arrangements have been handled by the Bellaire Chapel of Mortensen Funeral Homes. Please sign Tim’s online guestbook at
