Luke Hoyer was a quiet soul with a big heart. His friendly face, sweet smile, laid back personality and low-key humor brought happiness to all those around him. He was known as “Lukey Bear” to his family, a nickname his Mom gave him at an early age. Luke loved his family, his friends, his dogs, basketball, Clemson Football, family trips to South Carolina, family trips to the Jersey Shore, Miami Heat, Dwayne Wade and Chicken Nuggets. He could often be found playing basketball at his neighborhood court with friends. He played for many years in the Parkland Basketball League and was a member of several travel basketball teams. He also played football in middle school and was looking forward to trying out for the MSD football team in the fall. Luke led a simple and beautiful life. He didn’t need to say much, just having him around made the room feel warm and welcoming. Luke’s contagious smile and good nature well be greatly missed by those that knew and loved him. He touched many lives and will be felt in many hearts forever. Luke’s parents, his older sister Abby and older brother Jake love and miss him so much everyday! He will always be our Lukey Bear!
