Luke Talley

August 8, 1999 — October 24, 2023

Kennett Square, PA

     Lucas Robert Talley, age 24 of Kennett Square, PA, gained his angel wings on October 24, 2023, with his family by his side. Luke fought a courageous battle but was unable to overcome injuries sustained in an auto accident.

     Luke is the son of Dawn Winward Talley and John "Jack" Talley Jr. He is survived by his sister Emily Talley Hood and her husband Bryan Hood of Kennett Square and brother Jonathan Talley of Chadds Ford. He was Uncle Lukie to Kennedy & Carter Hood. He is also survived by his grandfather, Edward Harvey of Chadds Ford. He was predeceased by his maternal grandmother, Bonne Winward of Chadds Ford and grandfather Robert "Butch" Winward of Avondale and paternal grandfather John Talley Sr. of Chadds Ford.

     Luke graduated from Unionville High School, class of 2018 and went on to earn his Business degree from Penn State University, graduating with Honors in 2022, where he was a proud member of Tau Phi Delta Fraternity. He was an entrepreneur who would have been successful at any chosen career path, but he decided to become a plumber working side by side with his dad and be the successor to the family plumbing business.

     Luke was a light on this earth that touched everyone he met. He was kind, funny, courageous, adventurous, compassionate, and oh, so smart. He had a smile that would brighten your day and a hug that would warm your heart. He made everyone around him feel happy, whether you met him for the first time or knew him your whole life. He was a loyal friend to so many who will miss him dearly. He was so loved!

     Never one to sit around, Luke loved the outdoors. He was an avid hunter and fisherman and was currently teaching his young dog, Gunner, how to bird hunt. His greatest passion was motorcycles. He had barely learned to walk when he started riding. It was in his blood. He was very accomplished on a dirt bike, meeting new friends everywhere he rode whether it was at a local track or traveling to dual sport meets with his dad and brother. He was the wheelie king and could ride the road for miles on one wheel. 12 o'clock Luke! Always looking for the next accomplishment, he began racing with his dad at several club tracks, achieving the distinction of expert rider at his young age. #776.

     Luke made his mark on this world. He touched everyone he met in some way and will always be remembered as that little guy with the greatest zest for life, the biggest heart and the brightest light.
