It saddens me to hear of the death of Mr. Luke. While I have not seen him in many years, I have fond memories of him when I was in
4-H. He also accompanied my mother on a trip to Cuban after she won the state fair....even more years ago. He was frequently spoken of, and always with a smile. My deepest of sympathies and love to his family. May God bless you with pleasant memories to carry you through.

On behalf of the Lansou family, I'm sending deepest condolences. It was always a pleasure when Mr. Luke would drop in to see my dad (Dave Lansou) when he was in the Arabi area. We would sit and reflect, and tell old stories of 4-H and farm days on my grandparents farm in Kenilworth. He was truly a warm and gentle man.

What a good neighbor Mr.Luke was. He is a fine memory of my childhood. I remember when he retired and traveled each summer and I cut his grass for him, I would often think one day I will buy an RV and see the world the way Mr.Luke is doing. He is now on a new journey exploring new world and RV Parks.
