Luke was born in Sterling to John and Gertrude Artzer on April 19, 1953. He attended school at St. Anthony's Catholic School and then Sterling High School as a high school senior, graduating in 1971. Luke then attended Northeastern Junior College, where he received a degree in Marketing Mid-Management. Throughout his years, Luke lived in Wisconsin, California, Colorado, and Texas where he held numerous job positions including retail sales, auto sales, regional management, and most recently, materials handling equipment sales. On October 8, 2004, he married Ceri Hillman of Sterling. From 2005 to 2009, Luke held an office with Ceri, at Artzer Insurance Agency and the Leavitt Group in Sterling.
Luke’s loving, caring, and protective nature towards his close family and friends is one of God’s blessings sent to us. He was a very inspirational, informational individual whose wisdom of (his) past experiences and the lessons that came from a fulfilled life lived were always available to any and all potential benefactor. His strong loyalty to us, his company, and the truest love of his spouse are high standards we proudly recognize. Welcomed will be the time in which sadness for his loss feels more like gratitude for Luke and his ‘loving touch’ on our lives.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, January 12th at 3 pm at New River Fellowship, 3252 IH 20 Frontage Rd, Hudson Oaks, TX 76087.
