Obituary for Luther Jett

Luther Jett, 75, of Charleston, passed away December 15, 2018 with his wife Nancy, his oldest son Mike and his fiance, Dallis, his youngest son Nathan and wife Melissa by his side. He was born in Richwood, WV on April 7, 1943, where he learned early in life to love ramps.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Willard and Nellie Jett; sister, Naomi and brother, David.

He worked for the State of West Virginia Department of Health from May 1966 through June 1980. He then worked for the WV State Parkways Authority as a toll collector from August 1980 through August 2010, when he officially retired. He was asked to return to the turnpike to work on a temporary basis. He accepted the request and worked until August 2012. Never being one to sit still, he then went to work for Kanawha County School system as a substitute custodian in October 2012 and worked until May 2018.

He was blessed with a sense of humor and quick wit. He had such a zest for life and loved making people laugh, sometimes going to extremes. If he was feeling rough, one would never know it by the way he took laughter with him everywhere. He was loved by many and is missed by many.

He is survived by his wife of 47 years Nancy; sons, Mike and his fiancé, Dallis, David, Nathan and wife, Melissa; grandchildren, Malikai and Moria; special daughter, and granddaughter, Amy and Katie; sister, Sylviajean and brother, Steve.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, April 6, 2019 at Springfork Missionary Baptist Church on Campbells Creek at 2 PM with Pastor Mike Long officiating. You may visit his Tribute page at to share your memories with the family.
