Luke was the best torch on roofer ever. He worked in Kelowna and Calgary just starting up his own company recently. Lukas was also a kickass musician playing drums, keyboard and most of all an acoustic guitar player and electric guitar player. He was passionate about all music and was a diehard metal fan. Loving bands like Slipknot, Lamb of God, Pantera and so many others. He enjoyed many concerts and wept when Dimebag Darrell (Pantera) was assassinated on December 8, 2004. He was Luke’s music god. Luke became a poster child for overcoming addiction. He was fortunate to attend Options Okanagan and Doug MacKenzie (owner of Options) became his mentor. He was very involved with recovery and a very positive influence on everyone who knew him. He mentored a young fellow Adrien Chatelaine in Calgary. Luke was a fantastic friend to this young man. He went on to meet the love of his life Meghan and baby Harlo. He finally got his little girl that he always wanted. He would Facetime with his mom so she could see Harlo, his precious pride and joy.
