About Luke Macdonald

Luke attended Humewood Community School, Rawlinson Community School and graduated from Northern Secondary School where he played on the football and rugby teams. He would have been starting his third year at University of Guelph in the Environmental Science program and was a proud member of the University of Guelph Gryphon Rugby team as a Prop.

Those who knew Luke knew his big heart and even bigger hugs!

When you think of Luke, celebrate the good memories you have. Remember that life is fragile and should be cherished. He will be missed more than words can ever express.

Luke was happiest when outdoors with friends and family, sleeping in a tent, running crazy lines down rapids in kayaks and canoes, skiing down mountains and playing rugby as a Red Knight, Gryphon and as a “Front Line Lad” with the Toronto Nomads.

He is survived by his loving parents Mike and Kelly and older brother Gavin who Luke loved to introduce as his “little brother”, Grandparents Bob and Doreen Bell, Joan and David MacDonald, Uncle Norm and Suzanne, Aunt Janine and Uncle Alberto, cousins Reed, Gabriela, and Elijah.

We are going to miss Luke’s infectious goofy laugh during movies, his fantastic creations in the kitchen and crazy card playing skills.

Messages of Remembrance

Shape Created with Sketch.
  • Vivid memories all of us have of Luke is camping at Bonne Rouge on the beach. It was impossible to keep Luke out of the water and even more impossible to keep his bath suit on. Luke was a “nudey” as our kids called him. We will remember him for his big heart and big smile.
