Obituary

Luke Robert Siegel was born on April 18, 2006, in Lubbock, Texas, to Tim and Jenny Siegel. Luke passed away Thursday, August 19, 2021, at the age of 15, following a brief illness, with family by his side. Luke loved being with his friends, playing baseball, everything Texas Tech, playing catch with his dad, and watching the New Orleans Saints.

Luke’s life changed on July 28, 2015, when he sustained a severe brain injury at the age of nine. For the past six years, he continued to fight. He underwent several surgeries and daily therapies. His family strived to give him the best life by including him in every aspect of their lives, including taking him to Saints games, Texas Tech football and basketball games, and Lubbock-Cooper volleyball games to watch his sisters compete. He went on daily walks with his faithful companions by his side. Luke was the youngest member to be initiated into the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity.

Luke is survived by his parents and sisters Alex Dragich, her husband Matt, Kate Siegel, and Ellie Siegel, all of Lubbock. He is survived by three very special nephews: Tommy, Cal, and Miles; grandparents Robert and Gloria Siegel of Kenner, Louisiana; Jerry and Sue Swetnam of Lubbock; Jody Barrett of Austin; and great-grandmother, Glenda Barrett, of Cotton Center. He was preceded in death by his “Gammy,” Lindy Swetnam, and grandfather, Donald Barrett.

Luke taught us all the true meaning of never giving up. He was the greatest fighter and helped us all to put one foot in front of the other.

The family would like to extend a great deal of gratitude to all of those who cared for and treated Luke over the past six years. Special thanks to his three loving nurses: Astrid, Cindy, and Melissa.

The family of Luke Siegel will celebrate his life at 11:00 am on Saturday, August 28, 2021, at the United Spirit Arena. His family will host a time of fellowship and remembrance from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm, on Friday, August 27, 2021, at Lake Ridge Chapel and Memorial Designers. We invite you to view the live-streamed service on this page, sign his virtual guestbook, and download his memorial keepsake folder to your device for printing. We also ask you to consider viewing his Life Tribute, a video of photographs set to his favorite music.

“If someone tells a boring joke and no one laughs at it, you could laugh at it.” ~ Luke
