Luke is survived by his mother, Ida LaGrange of Lafayette; his brother, Mark LaGrange and his wife Raquel of Lafayette; his sister, Leah Hebert and her husband Kim of Lafayette; his paternal grandmother, Anna Lou LaGrange of Cecilia; one niece, Anna Maria Hebert; three nephews, Brennan LaGrange, Grant LaGrange, and Brooks Hebert; one great-nephew, Knox LaGrange; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his father, Bobby LaGrange; his maternal grandparents, Victoria and Giorgio Gottardi; and his paternal grandfather, Preston LaGrange.
Luke loved life and people, and gave joy to so many. He was highly intelligent, funny, and had a fantastic sense of style. Having no children of his own, Luke had a special connection with his niece and nephews, whom he adored. Not only was he the “fun, cool uncle,” but he was a mentor and friend as well, who offered them inspiration and guidance. While Luke enjoyed traveling the world, he absolutely loved coming home to his beloved city of New Orleans. He relished all that the city had to offer, from running in its parks, dining at fine restaurants, listening to live music, and attending sporting events. As a young child, he started following LSU Football and the New Orleans Saints with his father and brother, and continued to do so passionately throughout his life. In spite of his many interests, his greatest fulfillment in life, however, came from his devotion to his family and loyalty to his wide circle of friends.
Luke was an Honor Graduate of the Teurlings Catholic High School Class of 1999. He attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where he was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity, and went on to graduate with honors in 2003. He was subsequently employed as an Industrial Sales Engineer, a career in which he enjoyed tremendous success for many years.
Pallbearers will be Mark LaGrange, Kim Hebert, Brennan LaGrange, Grant LaGrange, Brooks Hebert, and Lee Kawas.
The family would like to extend special thanks to Tannya Aguilera for the love and care she showed Luke in the time she knew him.
