Luke T. Hoyer, 15, of Parkland, FL passed away suddenly on Wednesday, February 14, 2018. Luke was born in Louisville, CO on October 25, 2002. Luke was a quiet young man with simple tastes: basketball, video games, chicken nuggets and anything sweet. He loved his family, his dogs and his friends. Luke didn't need to say much; just having him around made the room feel warm and welcoming. His smile and good nature will be greatly missed by those that knew and loved him. We will continue to feel his presence in our hearts and souls. He will always be our Lukey-Bear. Surviving Luke is his loving parents Thomas and Gena Stroud Hoyer, a sister Abby Hoyer, a brother Jake Hoyer, his Maternal Grandparents Janice and Eddy Stroud, his Paternal Grandparents Richard and Ann Hoyer, his aunts and uncles, Ron and Joan Cox, Jim and Joan Tucker, Susan and Paul Cooper, Sally and Tim Button and Pat Hoyer and his cousins, Trey Cox, Grant Cox, Anna Tucker, James Tucker, Mathew Button, Grace Button and Zachary Button. The family will receive friends on Sunday, February 18, 2018 from 2:30 P.M. until 5:30 P.M. at Church by the Glades, 400 Lakeview Drive, Coral Springs, FL, 33071. Funeral Services will be held on Monday, February 19, 2018 at 11:00 A.M. at Church by the Glades. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Luke's memory to Voices for Children of Broward County, 401 E Las Olas Blvd., Suite 130-301, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301, or at

I think of you often. I really think of your family and pray that they have faith! I am now grieving for a person who mean't everything to me! It is terribly hard for me! So I do not what to imagine what the your parents are going thru. Even though I know you are in a better place and that is where we really all want to go to... the hardest part is missing the person you love so very much your heart bleeds! Everyone says to look at the happy memories, but right now they hurt to remember... I pray your families grief is not so overbearing right now! I am sure they are still hurting terribly.. God bless you all! With Love to all !

I'm currently sitting on my couch crying. Today a ten year old lost her life. It doesn't matter how, her life was still taken way too young. It made me think of you. It makes me think what I have done to deserve this life while others out there who deserve it way more than me are losing theirs. You are so loved Luke. I wish you could be home with your mom. I wish your family could hear your voice one more time. I love you. You are loved. You will never stop being loved.

Every step I take,
Every move I make
Every single day,
Every time I pray

Luke, it's 1:22 in the morning and you just came across my mind. Everyday i question why I was put on this Earth. I question why certain things have to happen. I will live my life for you. Every adventure I take, you're taking it with me. Every new food I try, you're trying it with me. I'm sending so much love to your family.

Luke, you were only 15 years old when your life was taken so senselessly. You had a lot of growing up to do, graduating high school, going to college, getting your driver's license, getting married and having children. I just can't imagine all of the hard ache your family must have. Many prayers.

Although we never knew your baby boy, we had business at one point with the company your sons father works for. We are still deeply saddened each and every day. As we continue to see more and more each day in the news, we are reminded of what you must be going through. This is a extraordinary tough loss. Our deepest condolences. Luke and your family are always in our heart.
