    Luke was a very special person. Loved by all missed by the universe

  2. Lori Billinger Says:

    Luke was so much fun! He was the life of our high school class. He wrote to me while he was in the service-always bringing a smile to me! Praying for his family.

  3. Barbara Cordts Says:

    Luke brought cheer and blessings to each Sunday at mass. He will be missed by each of us, but is at peace. My prayers have been with him these final weeks and I now offer my prayers for all his loved ones. Throughout these past years, he spoke lovingly of you, but also shared some mischievous stories of growing up as well!

  4. Kristel Hladky Says:

    Luke and Charles (both Mr. Kneisler to our family!) often shared a pew with us at Sunday 8AM Mass, particularly when they lectored. They were always so kind to our 4 kids and took time to check in and share a funny story. Our kids loved them both and our family has missed Charles and will miss Luke. We are very thankful for the smiles they brought to our family.

  5. Chris Kneisler Says:


    God Love You. You were the true rebel with a good cause. I loved your commitment to this country and our family. I will make sure your commitment to fight both foreign and domestic enemies will be defeated for WE THE PEOPLE.

    Your Bro,
    Miss you.

  6. Diane Schell Says:

    We will miss Luke at the 8:00 Sunday Mass. His constant presence, praying the rosary before Mass, being an excellent lector and chatting with our music ensemble before or after Mass are my fond memories of Luke (and Chuck & JoAnn). May Luke rest in peace with his parents. Peace and prayers to your family.

  7. Karen Rezac Says:

    I will miss Luke’s presence at Good Shepherd. He was a spirit filled lector, just like his Dad, Chuck.❤️ How wonderful it was to see Luke’s care for his father and mother in their last years. He was a sweet soul.

  8. Connie (Geist) Neises Says:

    Mathew and Mark,
    I just saw that Luke passed away. You have no idea how sorry I am for you and your family! Luke was always such a funny guy! He simply would make me smile. Now that beautiful smile is smiling down upon all of you and your families! Your parents greeted him to the beautiful Gates of Heaven to meet Our Savior!

    In Sympathy and In Christ,
    Connie and Glenn Neises
