James Polk Luton, Jr. known to friends and family as "Jim" passed away August 31, 2020. He was born October 3, 1934 in Oklahoma City to James Sr. and Lucille (Walker) Luton. Jim had two loves in his life, as all who knew and cared for him can attest. The first being his beautiful wife of 62 years, Sheila and the second, his love of numbers and the dedication he had for his work. At the age of twelve Jim was inspired to become an accountant and that led to a lifetime of working with numbers in service to others. Early in Jim's career he taught accounting at OCU. The Luton & Co., PLLC firm was established in 1967 by Jim and has grown to the successful practice that it is today; specializing in tax preparation and assurance services for multiple industries including construction and nonprofits. He was a member of many professional associations and served as board member of the National Accounting Association for numerous years. As dedicated as Jim was to work, he also enjoyed many other interests including a daily running routine starting promptly at 3:45 a.m., traveling the world with Sheila and their 40-year tradition of summer visits to Destin, FL. Jim was an avid reader and a devoted OU Football fan; a season ticket holder for decades.
