Dearest Shea Family,
We are deeply sad that Luke has passed and treasure many wonderful memories of him.
He always seemed eager, happy, and appreciative of sharing company and simple pleasures. He brought so much joy.
Pancakes in Weston Center (before school!) with Luke and Chris were special.
Our thoughts are with you.
Hoping many happy memories will prevail over the terrible loss of a special boy gone far too early.
Love, Aidan, Isabelle, Susan, and Doug Faller

Luke was by far one of the kindest, happiest, and caring people I have ever met. He always knew what to say to make me laugh and smile. I worked with him for over 2 years at Brueggers and we had so many memories there. Because of Luke, work was so fun to be at and I was excited to be there. He was part of an incredible group of friends that originated at Brueggers, we all had so much fun working there together. After we both departed from working there, we continued to be friends. I am so incredibly grateful that I got to share many memories working and being friends with Luke. He was one of the warmest people I have ever met, I will never forget him. My thoughts and prayers are with his entire family. ❤️

Luke was like an older brother to me and a great role model. As his neighbor, I remember him coming over very frequently to hang out with my brothers and I. Although I am six years young than him, I really think he was a great influence. Everytime my grandmother visited from Pakistan, he would make sure to greet her with respect and there were never any leftovers when Luke was around. Although I have two older brothers, I really connected with him. I remember playing games such as Call of Duty with him, and making Ramen Noodles. A lot of ramen noodles. We also played a lot of basketball and when I look back upon it, he was the one who taught me to be a boy. I really miss him because of his importance to me and his influence on my current personality. Although in the past couple of years we drifted away, I will never forget the way he impacted me and my siblings lives.

Luke was such a special person and will always and forever hold a special place in my heart. I remember the times that we would all hangout together and have some wonderful laughs, especially in Tutoring Monitoring through 6-8th grade! I will forever remember your laugh Luke, it always brought a smile to my face. Even when I was down you would always find someway to make me laugh. Please watch over all of us and guide us when we need help. You were always a lovely person and helpful one at that too.

Thanks for a lot of memories friend! Prayers to the Shea family during this hard time, your boy was very special and I think about him everyday.

Such a warm and genuine young man. Outgoing and polite. Never did he leave a conversation without making you happier than you were before you spoke with him. What a gift!
