Luke entered into this world one of a kind, changing the life of everyone who met him for the better. When telling his story, it is difficult to focus on just one outlandish event, and impossible to get through without doubling over in laughter. In childhood, he could be found in green rubber boots that his Nana ensured she kept a size up for his ever-growing feet. He was Indiana Jones, a cowboy in a little pearl snap, and an aspiring Youtuber. He liked to tuck his ears into little buttons and flick them open after he told a joke to be sure he, “put the funny in it.” Luke spent weeks writing letters to Taco Bell adamantly insisting they put a franchise in Castor. He never let a Kid Rock song play without finding his mama to dance, and he never let an opportunity pass to aggravate his daddy. Luke was known for his love of 90s rap which he played loudly in his white lowrider with the signature purple lights. He came running without question whenever any of his family or friends were in need. Luke made the world a better place to be. He was loved by all and had so much love to give. To say he will be missed is an understatement.
Left to cherish the beautiful memory of Luke Partain is his wife Bethany, who he fell in love with at the young age of 15 after insisting his mother drive him to Saline so that he could ask her to the homecoming dance. His legacy lives on through their daughter and light of her daddy’s life, Arlie Kay, who Luke absolutely adored and exemplified the definition of fatherhood at its finest. Luke took on the role of the perfect girl dad with an ease that confirmed it was his life’s calling. His memory will forever be revered by his loving parents, Jennifer and Trey Partain; his grandparents Charlie Wesley Henderson and Bill and Lynn Partain; his mother in-law and father in-law, Paul and Arlene Oliver; and his siblings Noah and Makayla Partain, Kaylie and Silas Guidry, and Finley Oliver. His unique and infectious sense of humor will carry on through his niece Layla Sneed who affectionately referred to Luke as “Uncle Skippy,” his nephews Shelby Sneed, Milton Guidry, Phillip Guidry, and Wyatt Sampson. Luke’s family will make sure that his story is told so that his niece Conlee Partain and nephew and namesake, Wesley Partain know just how remarkable he truly is. His memory will also forever be held by a host of dearly loved aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Luke is preceded in death by his grandparents James and Betty Wallace and grandmother, Brenda Henderson.
Pallbearers for the service include Noah Partain, Hunter Hennigan. Hunter Chautin, Hayden Humphrey, Danny McCain, and Seth Reeves.
