Luke Tyler’s Funeral Fund

Donation protected
Every person who came across Luke would say that he was one of the most sincere and kind individuals they have met. We want to ensure that his name is not forgotten, and to assist his family in these impossibly trying times. We want to give Luke the memorial he deserves, to honor his memory and say our last goodbyes. We are currently asking for donations to help cover the cost of Luke’s funeral for his family.


“As we are preparing for Luke Tyler’s Celebration of Life, we continue to be touched by the immense outpouring of support and love for our family, as well as the recognition of the impact on the many lives that Luke touched.  Luke’s suicide is a tremendous loss of life, love and potential that we continue to grieve.   
We are continuing to work with the authorities to determine how in a short 4 months during his first semester at WSU, Luke went from a positive, compassionate, and kind young man to having a depression so deep that caused him to take his own life. He had shared with close friends that he was at his breaking point due to hazing at Theta Chi, and we look forward to learning the truth about his experience.    
To honor his life and recognize the kindness he spread in the world, the family asks that you consider donations to “The Luke Tyler Memorial Scholarship Fund” at Sail Sand Point to enable other children to learn to sail and love the water the way Luke did.”
