Luke was a contractor by trade. He loved spending time with his family and he loved the outdoors and spent much of his free time fishing and hunting, and passed that passion onward, volunteering to take kids on outings with the youth hunting and fishing club Cross Trail Outfitters (CTO).

He was a loving son, brother, nephew, cousin and friend.

Luke is and will be missed and will live on in our hearts forever.

    Our family will miss you more than you'll ever know! You were like the big brother of the neighborhood kids (boys and girls alike). Always patiently taking the time to acknowledge them and showing them your love and care for them all! You were one of "ours". A bond that can never be broken by all the wonderful memories we have with you...and the boys! Your big smile and generous heart will always live in ours! Rest easy friend, until we meet again! We love you ❤
