Luke Donnelly.
A father to Bradley. A beloved partner of Kerry Leech. Taken from us all too soon.
Luke was known for his beautiful and kind nature and a familiar face within the Nissan 300zx community as a knowledgeable friend and teacher who had all the time in the world to help others - whether face to face or online. He never turned anyone away - the biggest heart of gold. No matter what time of day, if there was an emergency and he got a call, he would be there asap.
If you had the privilege of meeting Luke, you would be aware that whether meeting him once, twice or several times, his presence carried a calming aura that could soothe the room.
Full of laughs and witty jokes, intellectual information and a contagious laugh, Luke could make you laugh, laugh and cry or roll around in hysterics.
Luke was a pleasure to be around and is so sorely missed by many.

This go fund me is STRICTLY for the benefit of Kerry and Bradley, these funds will go directly to them. As you are all aware, funerals are hard enough to arrange and this is to assist with whatever costs there are due to his sudden passing.

If you met Luke or know of him in the car community, please contribute for his family. No donation too small - it all adds up. Kerry and Bradley will be appreciative of all the help they receive. As dear friends of the family, this is the least we can do.

On behalf of Kerry, Bradley and Luke, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

As Luke was not religious there will not be a service held but a BBQ open to all hosted by West Side Automotive. West Side Automotive will also be providing stickers to honour Luke for their vehicles. Dates TBA. Please let any one of us know if you would like a sticker before hand so we can order appropriately and no one misses out.
