The Houlden Family

Tragically and unexpectedly, Luke Houlden passed from this world on Saturday March 14th.  His family is devastated and is struggling to deal with the loss of their dad, husband, and son.  In a effort to relieve the financial burden of Luke’s sudden passing we are appealing to friends, family, neighbours and colleagues who feel so helpless and want to assist in some way.  A fund has been set up to assist Luke’s wife Candace and two young daughters as they move through this difficult transition.  Our goal is to raise $40,000 to support them in the short term until such time that a return to work is possible. Excess funds will be put into a long term educational fund for Luke’s 2 daughters Bale age 5 and Brookslee age 8.  We know that Luke would have wanted to provide for his family and this is one thing we can do to honour his legacy as a loving Dad.  

So how can you help?

You will be missed now and forever, Rest In Peace, Luke.
