Memorial Fund for Luke Burgess

May 16, 1995 - July 12, 2016

BURGESS, Luke Trevor; of Clarkston; went to be with the Lord July 12, 2016; age 21.  Loving son of Rick and Lesa; beloved brother of Alissa (Will) Aittama, Jordien and Lauren; grandson of Jerry and Sharon Burgess and Sam and Becky Sasser; uncle of Victoria and Alexander.  Also survived by many aunts, uncles, extended family and friends.  Luke was an avid river fisherman.  He loved strumming his guitar.  Friends may visit at the Lewis E. Wint & Son Funeral Home, Clarkston Sunday 3-5 & 7-9 pm.  Funeral Service Monday 11 am at Clarkston Community Church.  Interment Lakeview Cemetery.

Luke's life was filled with purpose; to bring that smile with him to pass on to others wherever his adventures took him, to make people laugh till their sides ached, and to fill people with love and kindness they never knew existed until they met Luke.

This is obviously an unexpected tradgedy and a financial hardship for his family.  Funds raised will be used to cover his arrangements. Any amount you could possibly give would be greatly appreciated. 

Those who know Luke know he will be giving a giant bear hug to everyone who helps his family.

Thank you so much!
