Mazel tov to the Luskeys
Congratulations to Bennie and Sonya Luskey, who will be celebrating his 90th birthday on July 23 and their 63rd anniversary on Aug. 18. Their children, Henry and Jeanie Luskey of Fort Worth and Rossi and Dr. Gary Solomon of Dallas, will co-host a family luncheon on July 25 at Cousin’s Bar-B-Q in Fort Worth.
Bennie Luskey, a member of a well-known local family, has lived in Fort Worth his entire life and has been a member of Congregation Ahavath Sholom for about 60 years. The Luskeys have four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
The Luskeys are blessed with everything in their life. One of the highlights of their time together over the past 63 years are the many bus tours they have taken to Las Vegas and throughout Canada and the United States.
Sonya and Bennie have been happily married for the past 63 years and are looking forward to the future.
Mazel Tov to the Luskey-Solomon families.
