Luke was predeceased by his daughter, Barbara, mother-in-law,

Luke was a man with a great and true love for all things
outdoors. He loved working in his yard, tending his garden which was
small but he was so proud of. He could often be found outside in the
yard, leaned over the fence, talking with his neighbour and friend
Luke truly found joy out in the woods hunting game and
fishing. His other love was small engine repair, lawn
mowers, tractors and whipper snippers all found a new lease on life
with Luke’s gifted hands.
He was a true and loyal worker. Luke dedicated 19
years of his life to the Charmac Company. He made many
lifelong friends while on the job and took great pride in his work and
Luke’s great passion was his model
trains. He spent many painstaking hours amassing an
impressive collection of antique trains. He rescued many
pieces that might have been lost. Luke was always fixing or
rescuing something. When he was not out living life hunting
and fishing, fixing and collecting, his greatest love of all was saved
for his wife, Janet Ruston and his fur baby, Dane, the
Luke was a man who loved deep and loved true. He
was a man whose hands left lasting marks on everyone and everything he
touched. Luke left his world but the things he made and collected and
tended to will forever live on.
As per the family wishes, there will be no
visitation or service at this time.
Donations to a living memorial or a charity of
one’s choice would be appreciated by the family.
