Michael was the type of person that made friends where ever he went. He truly never met a stranger. In his younger years Michael enjoyed a little hunting and a lot of fishing. He made a career in the Seafood Industry, primarily in soft shell crabs. In his later years he mostly enjoyed visiting with family and good friends. He will be fondly remembered and dearly missed.

Survivors include his two sons, Michael C. Luke Jr. and Theo "T.C." Frederick; seven siblings, Mary Agnes Chedville, Ann L. Swallow and husband Garth, Marie L. Luke, Katherine L. Bateman, Zelda L. Edgil and husband John, Dave A. Luke III and wife Madalyn, and Lawrence J. Luke; two grandchildren, Michael C. Luke III and Kailyn LeAnn Luke; his best friend, Frederick "Fritz" Trappey Sr.; as well as a host of cousins, nieces, and one nephew.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Dave Alvin Luke Jr. and Agnes Angelle Hebert Luke; three brothers-in-law, Jackie Bateman, Elton Chedville, and G.P. Trahan Sr.; two nieces, Connie A. Bateman and Darren Luke; and three nephews, Don J. Bateman, Kenny Luke Chedville, and G. Paul Trahan Jr.

The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to Stephanie and Jace Thibodeaux, as well as the staff of Heart of Hospice, especially Jennifer, Janie, Rebecca, and Chaplain Rickey for the loving care and compassion given to Michael in his time of need.
