If you visit a cemetery on the outskirts of Flint, you're sure to see a tombstone that stands out among all the rest. It's the eternal home of a longtime General Motors employee who loved video games.

Who is Michael Leroy Luther?

This unusual grave marker that stands tall among all the others is where the body of Micahel Leroy Luther is buried. Luther was a resident of Mt. Morris and in addition to his career with GM, he served as a Seargent in the US Air Force. During the 80s, he also worked as a video game distributor, servicing and distributing coin-operated game consoles to businesses around Michigan.

Luther loved video games. But there was one iconic game that he loved more than all the others. That game was the highly successful 80s phenomenon, Pac-Man.

The Man They Called Pac-Man

Luther loved the game so much, that his friends and family started calling him Pac-Man. Sadly, the man whose nickname was a nod to the little guy who ate dots and ghosts passed away just before Halloween on October 29, 2007.

After his death, his sister Linda decided to honor his memory by designing a grave marker that looks like an old-school Pac-Man arcade game from the 80s.

The unusual grave marker that pays homage to Pac-Man is located in the Thetford Township Cemetery in Clio.

As you'll see in the video below, the headstone is engraved with a Pac-Man playing field, Luther's signature, and the poem 'The Bridge Builder by Will Allen Dromgoole. It also is engraved with the names of his wife Zona who passed away in 2008 and his children Jamie, Dennis, and West.

A Video Tribute

Props to Michigan Man who took us on a video tour of Pac-Man's grave. (Although we're taking points off for his mispronunciation of 'Clio.')
