Dear Rudy, Chuck, Hannah, Jake, Elizabeth and Grafton,
Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. My heart is aching for you all. The Finney family has so many wonderful memories of Luke as a young child and all through Gilman.
Sending love and many hugs,

I knew from the moment I interviewed Luke for a brokerage job that he had what it took to become a great professional - intelligence, tenacity, a work ethic and an infectious charm. I hired him and the rest, as we say, was history. He exceeded all expectations, as he usually did. Like so many, it never occurred to me that his run would be brilliant but short. Such a tragedy - but time to create memories and a legacy.

I had not one, but two different employers suggest that I go shadow Luke for a few hours and see how he sets so many meetings. He was resilient and brilliant on the phone and some of his tactics were rather comical. He was always willing to help and he had a great sense of humor. To his family and friends, my heartfelt condolences. Rest In Peace, Luke.

In 5th/6th grade softball, I don’t think anyone could hit the ball further than Luke.
Also a regular at Mama’s on Thursday night when he lived in Baltimore. I’ll miss him.
