My sincere condolences to Luke’s family, cherish your memories.
I have many fond memories of growing up in Charleston/MillVillage and Luke on his bicycle is one of them. I remember both Luke and Carol fondly as customers at Lockwoods Store where I worked for a few summers as well as always seeing them sitting on their, veranda overlooking the Medway river. Rest easy, Luke.

I would like to expand on Luke’s obituary. Luke had a wonderful career in the navy. I am sure the community has fond memories of him peddling his bike around and socializing with everyone. He enjoyed spending time with Aunt Laura, Bud and of course Carol whom fulfilled his life. At the age of 65ish, he finally got his license. That’s brave!
I saw him a few months ago and his mind was very sharp. He hadn’t been back to Charleston for years so I took some pictures and sent them to him. He wanted very much to see and chat which his old friends again. I hope the pictures allowed for some fond memories to resurface.
John,Anne and girls AndPatricia Luke lived a long and eventful life He and Carol visited us often He looked so we’ll and hardly seemed to have changed when I saw him last yearMy heartful condolences Marilyn McK.
To the family –
So sorry to read of Luke’s passing. I have known Luke and his mother since I first
met my late husband, Bill. His mother and Laura would visit Bill’s mom, Daisy, a lot.
Used to chat with Luke and Carol when they were out and about or on Carol’s veranda.
Both were such lovely people. Luke told such interesting stories. He and Carol are
together again. Rest easy my friend.

As a child, I can’t remember a time when Luke wasn’t a part of our lives. He was my father John’s best friend and was always so kind to our family. I just spoke of him to my Mother the last time I was home in January, sharing the great memories.
Time passed and he and Carol spent many happy years together. Passing by, seeing them on the porch was always such a welcome sight.
I will treasure his memory and express my sincere condolences to the family.

So saddened to hear that Luke passed away. I always enjoyed chatting with him whenever we met. A sweet, kind, gentle man. Rest easy, Luke. Condolences to his family and friends at this sad time.
My father, Bob Millard was at sea on the S.S. Vinland with Luke and talked glowingly of those times. He even wrote a book about it! Bob and Mary visited Luke and Carol any time they could.
After Mary’s death, Dad took me to see Luke when we were in Nova Scotia together. We loved his red truck! It was lovely to witness the closeness when Bob and Luke were together. Fond memories.
I visited Luke a few years ago at the comfortable home that Tim and Gloria created. He was pleased that I visited and gave me the gift of a photo of Dad at sea that I treasure! You are missed, Luke!
