"The mountains are calling, I must go.” – John Muir

Luke was born at Ballard Hospital March 26, 1990. He grew up in Edmonds and graduated from Edmonds-Woodway High School in 2008.

From age 16-18 he was a cleanup guy for Ballard Sheet Metal and, when he turned 18, he signed up for the Sheet Metal union and became a material handler for Ballard. He turned out as a sheet metal journeyman in June 2015.

Luke was active and adventurous, enjoying hunting, fishing, water sports, mountain biking, dirt biking, buggying, snowboarding and hanging out with his friends. But his absolute passion was riding snowmobiles. When he was in the mountains he beamed with pure joy.

Family and friends meant the world to Luke. He is survived by his mom and dad, Korey and Kristi Rohde, his grandparents, Dick and Dixie Rohde and Carole Olson, numerous aunts and uncles, cousins, extended family and billions of friends.

We all love you Luke, and will miss you so much!
