Luke Charles Menne went to be with Jesus on January 19, 2023. Luke was 15, born October 28, 2007. Luke spent a few years in San Diego California before moving with his family to Madison, AL. Luke attended West Madison Elementary, Westminster Christian Academy, Discovery Middle School and was currently a 9th grader at Bob Jones High School.
Luke was inquisitive, curious and always wanting to know why. He had a passion for understanding how things worked beyond the surface. He was not afraid to ask the hard questions about things, life and God. He loved the outdoors: climbing trees, exploring the woods or just digging holes. He had a passion for airsoft and played may airsoft battles with his friends. He loved mountain biking with his dad and brother and baking with his mama. He loved his family fiercely. He loved seeing his brother in the hallways at school and making him laugh. His sarcasm and sometimes dark humor left us speechless but smiling. He was learning Tae Kwan Do at Jeong’s Yong In Martial Arts. He was an avid gamer whether it be on his Xbox, computer or Oculus. Luke was able to hyper focus on some things. One of those was the Rubik’s cube. He was so proud he mastered multiple types of cubes and could solve the 3x3 in under a minute. His happy place was on the floor with any dog. There wasn’t a dog he couldn’t befriend. He lived to the beat of his own drum. Luke was a collector of all things. There wasn’t much that he didn’t notice. He was always aware of what was going on around him even if it didn’t seem like it.
Luke was preceded in death by his grandmothers, Sandy Menne and Linda Blough and his canine companion Lacey. He is survived by his parents Jim & Diana Menne, his brother Aidan Menne, his grandfathers Jim Menne and Charlie Blough, along with Aunts Beverly Reese (Dan), Lisa Blough-Dailey, Amy Brosch (Mark) and 5 amazing cousins. He has many great aunts, uncles and cousins as well. Luke is also survived by his biological mother, Natalie, three siblings, grandparents, an aunt and uncle and cousins. Luke has many friends that will miss the romps in the woods, playing video games and just hanging out pondering life. His buddy Max will miss his 8 pm playtimes.
A Celebration of Life will be held Wednesday January 25th at 5 PM, preceded by visitation at 2:30PM at Summit Crossing Community Church (7200 Governors W, Huntsville, AL 35806).
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Luke C. Menne Memorial Fund for Counseling, part of the Euonia Project, at http://eunoiacounseling.org.
Luke will live on in others. He will live on through the memories and stories we laugh and cry over. He will live on through the gift of life in giving his organs to others who desperately need them to continue on in this life. Legacy of Hope is helping his gift of life continue on. https://legacyofhope.org
