Lucus Longacker left this world on March 3, 2017. He was called home much too soon. God decided he needed his huge, loving, and gentle heart for better things that we will never understand. To Luke family was first and foremost. Luke leaves My Mom Sherrilyn and my Dad David. He was a fiercely loyal, compassionate son who lived home and took care of anything my parents needed. He also leaves behind my Brother Damien who is special needs. Luke was his hero and best friend. The gentle ways he showed his love to Damien was what I admired most about him. From tucking him in at night to being silly he was Damien’s everything. Then there is me, his sister Lisa. I loved him for his kindness and wicked sense of humor. He could make you laugh till your stomach ached. I will miss his laughter the most. Luke was a simple man who loved his garden and was so proud of his sunflowers and tomato’s. He once grow a tomato that was over 2lbs. He was so proud of it. He spent many hours gardening. He also loved animals. When he was little I remember him running in the house all excited to tell my mom there were “lifeforms” AKA tadpoles in the creek. We still laugh about that today. He loved his German Shepard and missed his girl Cheyanne immensely when she passed. Then there is Donald and George his beloved cats who adored him. Cooking was his trade and he was known for his stuffed mushrooms and meatballs. He showed his love through his food. In High School he majored in Culinary Arts and won an internship to the Italian American Club. He was the first intern in New York State. He worked there for over 10 years as a banquet chef. He also worked for a short time at the Desmond Americana. His last job was at the deli in the Hannaford Market in West Sand Lake. He loved his Job and left this world with his Hannaford cap on. I good say so much more but how do you eulogize a life unfinished. All I can say is we loved you so much and will never stop missing our sweet and gentle Luke. The family wishes to thank Hannaford for their kindness and generosity which went above and beyond and also in lieu of flowers if people wish a donation can be made to the Hudson Mohawk Humane Society.
Family and Friends are invited and may call on Saturday, March 11, 2017 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at the McLoughlin & Mason Funeral Home, corner of 109th Street and Third Avenue, Lansingburgh.
