In his last moments, Luke was surrounded by his closest people, including his parents, siblings, fiancée, ex-wife, and his beloved two children, son Jack and daughter Sophie.
Sophie has posted a touching tribute to dad on Instagram, and her brother has joined her, vowing to continue making their father proud.
Jack’s heartfelt tribute
The 21-year-old took to Instagram to express his mixture of emotions. His goodbye message is a mixture of sadness and gratitude, a solemn promise to keep Luke’s legacy alive and make him tremendously proud.
Jack wrote in his post:
He was a lot of things to a lot of people. To me, he was always Dad.
He loved and supported me in everything, and inspired me to be the best that I could possibly be.
I’ve learned so much from you, and my heart is broken thinking about everything you won’t be here for.
I’ll miss you every day that I walk this earth.
I’ll do whatever I can to carry on your legacy and make you proud.
I love you Dad.
Jack is taking his time to mourn dad’s passing

We hope Jack and the rest of Luke’s family will find peace and comfort in these trying times.
Rest in peace, Luke! You passed knowing your family loves you dearly, and you did, too.
