For the past four years, he was detailed to Drug Enforcement Agency’s Austin office as a task force officer.
Lueders, 70, is survived by his wife, Sandra Lueders, to whom he was married for 41 years, and by four children: daughter Tonya Heffington and her husband, Lex; daughter Tami Tesauro and her husband, Matt; son Tom Lumley; and daughter Rachel Johnson. He is also survived by three grandchildren and other relatives.
