Alvin J "'Pebble"" Luhr
Birth: Nov. 13, 1900
Elk County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: May 11, 1990
Elk County
Pennsylvania, USA

Husband of Caroline Knouse,

Father of Jack, Diane, Mary Linda, and Kathy
Grandfather to Diane's kids.

Brother to GilbertSpider and Henrietta

My Uncle owned.. "The Luhr's Flower Shop" in St.Mary's and had Greenhouses in the Back of the property, with all the flowers and plants used in landscaping. His Brother and Sister where also in the Floral Industry. They where very well known in Elks County.

Uncle Pebble told me as a Kid... "once you get it in your Blood, you will never get it out of your system"...I didn't understand, as a Kid.. until I became a Florist. Just the smiles on the Faces of People, Is Priceless.

He showed me the old days of designing and I showed him the new stuff, like making a poodle, out of flowers. 1970. I loved when he came to NYC for a visit and he took me to all the wholesalers on Fifth Ave.

I really Love My Job. Not to many people can say That.

Thank You Uncle Pebble.

He passed away on Mothers Day Weekend. How Fitting.
