Former residents of the La Porte City area, Methodist minister Lou Zuck,  and his wife Lynn, recently retired after 40 years of ministerial service. Over the past 40 years, Rev. Zuck has served seven pastorates around the state of Illinois, the last four of which came at Geneseo Grace United Methodist Church. He and his wife plan to continue their mission work in the state of Florida. Once there, they will continue their voluntary mission outreach as part of  the Nomads on a Mission Active in Divine Service (NOMADS).

NOMADS are individuals or couples with recreational vehicles that are used to travel to mission sites throughout the United States.

Zuck is the son of La Porte City residents Alice Zuck and Henry Zuck.
