Luckner Dorneval was born on September 29, 1945 in Anse-A-Veau, Haiti to Castel Guersin and Mazelie Dorneval. Luckner was the second of five children: Edwidge, Tony, Viergelie and Carole.
Luckner relocated to Port-au-Prince with his Mom where he attended Ecole Naitionale Isidore Boisrond and was later trained as a mechanics. Luckner accepted Christ at an early age. He was a member of Eglise de Dieu en Christ in Port-au-Prince where he met his wife Josette. They were blessed with two children Michaelle and the late, Jean-Luc. Luckner and his wife left Haiti and after a brief stay in the French Guiana, they moved permanently to the United States where the whole family were later reunited in Boston, MA.
Luckner was very handy and a hard worker. He worked at Walter E. Fernald Developmental Center for many years; he also worked at Costco until his retirement. He was a devoted servant and he volunteered his time in different church ministries; he spent many years driving the church’s van.
