  1. Our lives have never been the same after meeting brother Bill and brother Howie. Over the years the crazy antics and wonderful good deeds done for others, the brotherhood of good friends sharing and helping each other. His love for you two gals was without bounds and never ending. I was always amazed at his resolve to get something done, even when he just could not physically do it, never tell him NO or it can’t be done. As you said at the reception, he was a very unique fellow and we are all very fortunate to have known and loved brother Bill. Our prayers are that your fond memories stay fresh in your minds forever. We will all miss Bill very much.

  2. Please know you are in our thoughts during this most difficult time. I have known your dear father since I was in junior high school. We always had such fun. What a great guy. He will be missed but at least he suffers no more. Sincerely, Charlene and Jay Himes

  3. As a young ER Clerk working the so-called, “Graveyard” shift in Parkview’s ER (circa 1978), I met quite a few of our local PD; Bill and Howard included… OMG, those two brothers were full of laughter, with the biggest hearts ever. My deep sincere condolences to his family. Hey, Lukenbill… you will be missed, but ALWAYS remembered with honor and respect.

  4. We are sad to learn of Bill’s passing. He was a special person in our lives, and our deepest sympathy goes to Lauren and Jennifer. May your happy memories of him give you comfort in this time of grief.

  5. Cousin Bill…sandwiched between you and Butch..what a great childhood we had!
    Aunt Alice, Thelma acordian concerts, scouts, summers in Beulah..cousins galore…horseback rides..serious playing in the mountains…it was great to be part of the Lukenpoop clan.

    We all grew up (sort of) went our separate ways…but it was always good to get together. Roadeos and conversations til dawn…fighting with Butch…(5 yr olds ganging up on Howard….you punching…always keeping the brotherly/cousinly balance of power)
    Later, you were always the logical, calm influence..vs Butch and I being off-the-wall.
    I hated watching your hands knot up..but knowing the great times you had bull riding.
    I will miss you (morty) and I know your girls will always have great memories of a loving father..we will always remember a great man and friend.
    Bob and Sharon

  7. We knew Bill for a short time, but over that time we found him to be a good friend & person we truly enjoyed. We will miss him dearly along with our visits. Our thoughts and prayers to his family and loved ones.

  8. Bill was a lot of fun. Together with Howard, ornery times two! Thinking of them together again makes me smile.
    Wishing you hope and peace as you go through this sad time.
