Oh my god I didn't hear about this.
I’m stickying this for the next few weeks.
Good onya, luke.
Look at all the fine folks missing you.
A fan from hacks,
I popped into his shop on Monday for a bit, where I shared many a coffee, smoke and chat.
I just needed to do it, to settle it all.
i posted this in his thread in hacks, but I'll chuck it up here as well.
he made this for me as a gift ages ago.
he new i didn't have much ride time,
so i asked him and converted it into a clock, while not in use to hang in my garage.
then time rolls on and maybe now it's a fitting reminder to me life is short, time is precious..
i see it every time i wheel a bike out.
I have been wondering what has happened in regards to a funeral, if the coroner is awaiting a response from next of kin.....Luke was quite open in his wanting to fly under the radar, perhaps not wanting any family to know where he was for whatever reasons, he may be waiting for a while. For those close enough to call in and ask if old mate has any information, I would appreciate it.
I would hate to think that this brilliant builder would be laid to rest in an unmarked grave.
Very sad news
Never had the pleasure of meeting him but always enjoyed reading his comments
Seemed quite skilled at ‘stirring the possum’
Stay strong mate - thoughts and prayers
love . for putting shit on my comments
She has been better lately and seems to be off the shit (ice) and taking up the cancer battle.
Hugged me like a real daughter a few days ago and was excited about an access visit with her kid, if the ex shows up... Another drama i won't go into in her life.
Rest in Peace Luke
Luke was really helpful and encouraging when i asked for help with my project. Told me to ignore the dickheads. RIP and thanks mate.
Sad news to read.
It was reassuring to get a like from 'FR700' when fabbing something for my old beemer.
He liked the same photos that I did, a man of impeccable taste.
Vale upside down Sesame Street man.
Sad to read this. I exchanged a few PM's with Luke on a range of subjects, from welding to weird consciousness shit. He was a no nonsense opinionated blunt speaking intelligent fella and I'll miss his internet presence in whatever this reality farce is. Or isn't.
Raise a glass to you later Luke, you cranky bastard :)
Never thought I could be affected by some one who I only new via the internet and from another continent no less. However Luke had a way about him that could not be ignored. To think he could take this neophyte under his wing and truly wind up a mentor during my hack build.
Now as I think back that he was likely aware of his impending future during the many IM's that we shared makes it all seem so unlikely. But alas he is gone and I hope to a better place.
For sure Buck and I have already spent a fleeting moment in his honor and hope some day we will all have an opportunity to meet up face to face.
Jack and Buck
Don't get on here much anymore, so was shocked to here of Luke's passing.
He had a wealth of knowledge about anything mechanical and was an "artist" with metal.
Luke's guidance was invaluable to myself and many others.
He will be sorely missed
I'm just hearing it now. He gave me some valuable insight with his first hand experience w Robert Monroe and his Institute. Honestly, he probably "adjusted" my reality more than anyone on ADVrider. Turned me on to Tom Campbell and his Big TOE.
Sad? Not so much. I know where he is. I need to go look for him. He told me he spends time in the library.
ETA: This news has really (kind of) thrown me for a loop. Back in my first days of getting involved with TMI, he (looking back in it now) kind of mentored me. One thing we discussed a bit was happenstance, synchronicity, foreboding, etc. The shocking thing to me, coming in this news, is that only this morning, while searching for another thread, I came across JJ's TTWNN languishing on page 5 or 6. This following a general feeling of having, personally, lost the plot since 11/2016 for a few weeks.
So after I posted the above, I searched through my PMs to refresh my memory of some of what we'd shared and, lo and behold, the first PM* I opened contained this gem. A bit if context: this was in Dec 2012, when we were discussing the Mayan calendar and all sorts of "End of Days" scenarios in TTWNN:
Godspeed, Luke. I'm coming to the library.
*I know it's verboten to post PMs here, but I think the "spirit" of that rule is to avoid airing other,s dirty laundry in public. I'm sure Luke wouldn't have a problem with me sharing it. If the mods do, so be it.
I have unstickied this thread - any questions give me a hoy.
