If you performed an internet search for Luke Roux prior to June 25, 2022 you might not find a lot of information, in fact you would likely find nothing.
Luke was the opposite of flashy. He didn’t create an image or persona online. He was who he was. Action not words. Luke was a reflection to others of his love and faith in Christ.
Luke represented the best elements of Christianity by living a simple life rooted in love and kindness for those around him. He was a young man of few words. When words were needed they were real, yet kind.
Luke was a reflection to others of his love and faith in Christ.
Discipline is another word that comes to mind when you think about Luke.
UCONN recognized his strength and interest in math by awarding him academic scholarship support.
Luke was prepared and fully equipped to continue spreading his love and kindness beyond his family, friends, and the Farmington community before his life was cut short.
Luke started his day, like every day this summer, with his alarm going off at 8:30am.
After eating breakfast he spent time with his mother, which included a long walk around the neighborhood. Later that day, he did work around the house and practiced disc golf. He was looking forward to his baseball game that evening. Luke’s two favorite sports were ice hockey and baseball.
Just being on the field was more than enough for Luke but on this particular day his team finished the game in just 5 innings as they easily won their game. A teammate said Luke was extra happy that day about his hit resulting in 2 RBIs.
After the post-game talk, packing up his gear, and doing the normal field cleanup Luke got into his car to head home to his standard chocolate milk and a snack.
On his way home, following a route that he has taken many times, his car was struck and he was killed in a tragic collision.
Luke’s life ended in an instant and cast a shadow across so many hearts.
Luke’s mother, father, and two brothers have created this memorial fund to extend indefinitely the love, hope, and kindness that Luke created in his short life.
Luke left us at a time when he was wildly optimistic about the future, a future in which he would have helped so many more people.
