Luke Cody Loomis, age 26 of Roberts, WI, died unexpectedly on Tuesday, April 6, 2021 as the result of an automobile accident. Luke was born May 22, 1994 in River Falls, WI to parents Johnny and Sharon “Teri” Loomis. Luke attended school in River Falls, graduating from River Falls High School with the Class of 2013. Luke worked in food service as a cook at both Andersen Windows, and at UWRF. Even outside of work, Luke loved to cook and be creative in the kitchen.

Luke loved travel and adventure, and being out and about. Driving in his car and listening to music was a simple pleasure for Luke, and trips to Nova Scotia, Canada and Salem, Massachusetts were great travel experiences for him. Christmas was a favorite holiday, as he made it special for others by being such a thoughtful gift giver. Because of the fun decorations and haunted houses, even Halloween was a special holiday to him, since he loved going to haunted houses with his friends. Luke was that loyal friend who served up generous helpings of kindness and pure honesty, along with the occasional hard truth when needed. No one was more excited to receive a Bark Box in the mail, than Luke. He loved all kinds of animals, especially his dog, Petey.

Luke is survived by his parents, Johnny and Sharon “Teri” Loomis; siblings, Jessica and Hawkins; paternal grandparents, John and Lillian Loomis; four nephews; many cousins; close friends Jeremy and Corinne; numerous beloved friends; and of course, his dog Petey.  He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, James and Dorothy Fredenburg; and aunt, Sandra “Dee”.

Luke’s family will host a gathering for family and friends, which will take place from 3:00-7:00pm on Saturday, April 10 at the O’Connell-Benedict Funeral Home, 225 So. 3rd Street in River Falls, WI. Services have been entrusted to the O’Connell-Benedict Family Funeral Home of River Falls, WI. 715-425-5644 www.oconnellbenedict.com

Luke's Tribute Wall

Tributes (8):

Please note: if you just submitted a tribute, it is pending approval.
  • Me and luke graduated high school 8 years ago today. Boy were we so excited! We had been counting down the days and were so happy after the ceremony. We were now able to be “free” I say it like that because to us all that really meant was working more and being able to drive around aimlessly whenever we wanted. He was basically living at my house at the time as we were next door neighbors. For a while he really only went home to change and for dinner( thanks teri:] ) seeing the memories online today of us graduating brought back so many smiles. I miss my best friend and brother so much and I’ll never forget all the fun stuff we did as made millions of fond memories 🙂

  • I want to thank everyone for your love and support . I was so fortunate to have Luke as my son. He was everything I had hoped he would be.
    Hard working, since his first job at 16,kind,
    giving, loving, caring, always there for anyone that needed him for a hug or support.
    He was the best thing that ever happened to me and I miss him SO MUCH. My heart broke in a million pieces when I got the news of his death. My heart will never be whole again. The tears will never stop flowing. I think about him constantly always asking WHY, why did this happen to such a wonderful and beautiful person.
    I want to thank O’ Connell Benedict Funeral Home for making this so horrible task of losing my son tolerable. They were so wonderful .

  • Johnny Lee and family,.
    I was sorry to hear of your loss. Sending prayers for comfort. No words can make the hurt go away. I pray that you can smile through your tears with memories of all the good. God bless

  • Teri and Johnny,

    There are no words to ease your loss and devastation, no way to ease the pain. God, I wish there was something I could do. Please know that you both are deep in my heart and thoughts and if there’s anything at all you can think of that I can do, just say it. I love you and I grieve with you.
    Luke was the sweetest little boy and stayed just as sweet as an adult. I remember all the wonderful times with him as a little guy, I have so many precious memories of him! He truly blessed this world! I’m sorry as an adult I wasn’t able to know him like I did when he was young.
    Please remember that Luke would want you to keep going and never ever give up!
    All of us and the world has lost an angel.
    I’m sending you both all of my love and strength.
    Tina

  • Prayers for Luke’s family as they navigate through this time of sorrow. May you find a great peace and comfort in the caring of family and friends.

  • To all of Luke’s Family & Friends
    Our hearts were shattered when we received the news. How can this be? We are sending out love, hugs and prayers to everyone who knew and loved Luke.
    He was a kind soul that just made the world a better place to be. He had a smile that could brighten your worst day and such genuine hugs (we didn’t get as many as we wanted living so far away), a friend to all, a wonderful son, brother, nephew, uncle, grandson and person all the way around. We will cherish each and every memory we have of him.
    Johnny & Teri, there are just no words that seem right or enough. Nothing takes the pain away!! Nothing fills the void!!! Please know how much we love you. May God wrap his arms around each and everyone who is hurting right now and give us all the strength to keep going.
