He enjoyed tractors, making his sister Lydia laugh, spending time on the farm, feeding the cows bales, riding in the “bombine” and being outside. He also loved riding bikes, spending time with his grandparents, and learning Bible stories about Jesus from his parents.

Luke was called to his Heavenly home on Thursday, January 26th, 2012, at Sanford Medical Center in Sioux Falls. He is now safe in the arms of Jesus.
He was preceded in death by three sets his great-grandparents.
He is survived by his parents, Rick and Katie Melius and his sister Lydia of Brandon, SD, his grandparents Keith and Audrey Skrondahl of Pierre, SD, and Dwight and Denise Melius of Northville, SD, his great-grandparents, Don and Donna Nieses, Oldham, SD, his Uncle Kent Skrondahl of Sioux Falls, SD, Shaun Skrondahl, Trinity and Taleah of Sioux Falls, SD, his Uncle David and Aunt Laura Melius and their children Landen, Nathan, Teresa and Rachel of Cresbard, SD, his Aunt Angela and Uncle Jason Johnson and their children Carter and Lily of Lakefield, MN, his Uncle John and Aunt Jodi Melius and their daughter Avery of Brookings, SD, and other friends and relatives.
