Danial Luke Armstrong (June 28, 1990- September 30, 2022)It is with overwhelming sadness that we announce the sudden death of Luke Armstrong from an accidental drug overdose. Luke was a creative, bright, and charming young man who made an impression on everyone he met. He loved to snowboard, unicycle, juggle, and bike. He was a daredevil and a risk taker and lived life on the edge. He was determined to control his own destiny and live his life on his own terms. In spite of debilitating mental illness, Luke faced challenges with remarkable creativity and optimism. Luke was unique! A common expression about Luke was, “He is the first person to ever…” This applied to filling a car full of water when he was young, smoking marijuana in the seclusion room of the psych ward, riding the Greyhound bus without a ticket by charming the bus driver, finding the phone number for the air ambulance and arranging for it to come and get him as he was tired of waiting in the hospital, and having a judge allow him to speak without standing or putting his hand up. (He was requesting that the next time he was in court that he could go first because it was hard for him to wait all day.) Luke was forward-looking and always had some scheme on the go. We miss him so much! He was predeceased by his father, Danial Reid Armstrong, his aunt Diane, and his two grandfathers. He is deeply loved by his surviving relatives, who include his mother, Elda, stepfather Pat, brother Ben, his two grandmothers, and numerous other relatives. We would like to thank the many, many friends and professionals who supported Luke and his family to deal with his illness over the years. A very special thanks to Tim Peters. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Salvation Army or St. Vincent de Paul’s. A memorial service is planned for a later date.
