It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a well loved man.

Luke was raised in Haney, BC and spent his life there until he retired at 60. Luke and his wife Sharon then moved to Salmon Arm, BC where they lived for 21 years. This is where he dedicated summers to his amazing garden. He always supplied friends and family with great produce. He started working at the age of 15, logging with is Dad in Haney, and continued logging until he became a pile-driver for 23 years. He enjoyed being a mentor to the young pile-drivers and had a great time with all his pile-driver brothers.
