Biographical history

The Lutsky family immigrated to Canada from Poland in ca. 1925 and Aaron Lutsky opened a general store in Calmar, Alberta. After a few years in Calmar, the family moved to Edmonton where Aaron Lutsky opened a store on 97th Street and 101st Avenue. The Lutsky's lived above the store. The Lutskys had three children: Sarah (Berkovitch), Joe and William. After graduating university, William Lutsky built a sizeable personal fortune through the development of oil properties, the buying and selling of Edmonton real estate, and investments in the stock market. William Lutsky was a supporter of several organizations in Edmonton and made considerable financial donations to the Beth Israel Synagogue and the Edmonton YMCA. The YMCA honoured Mr. Lutsky's contributions by naming a new YMCA facility in south Edmonton in his honour. William Lutsky died in 2000. Joe Lutsky served in the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War and was awarded the Canadian Volunteer Service and Clasp. After the war, Joe Lutsky returned to Edmonton, married Miriam Glassman, and went into business with his brother William. Miriam Lutsky died in May, 2005.
