Luke C. Burrell

May 13, 1937 - October 21, 2015

Luke Conrad Burrell, 78 of Hendersonville went to be with Jesus on Wednesday, October 21, 2015 after a long illness.

A lifelong resident of Henderson County, he was born on May 13, 1937 in Greenville, SC to the late John William Harvey Burrell and Della Demira Collins Burrell. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his son, Timothy Burrell; eight brothers: Bob, Bud, Arial, James, Paul, Cothran, Stanley, and Jack; and one sister, Pat.

Luke served in the US Navy on the USS Boxer. He was a boxer in the lightweight division and worked on the flight deck as a signalman. He was a member and former Master Mason of the Polk County Unity Lodge #482 of Saluda and received the degree of the Scottish Rites and York Rite. He was also a Shriner and a member of Victory Tabernacle Church. He was a truck driver and driver trainer for more than 55 years of his life.

He is survived by his loving wife, Virginia Mae Cagle Burrell; six children, Debbie Farmer (Mark), Pamela Mann (Mike), Kathie McPeters (Billy), Scott Burrell (Jennifer), David Burrell and Kenneth Solomon (Caroline); 27 grandchildren (Lisa, Kassie, Jennifer, Angel, DJ and several more) and 25 great-grandchildren.

He was a blessing to all who knew him. We could not have ordered a better father or husband. He had many more accomplishments throughout his life; he always strived to better his and his family’s life in every way possible. We will miss him until we see him in Heaven one day.

Funeral services will be held at 11 AM Monday, October 26, 2015 in the chapel of Forest Lawn Funeral Home with burial following at Forest Lawn Memorial Park. The Reverends Susan Russell and Lloyd Morgan will officiate. The family will receive friends from 3-5 PM Sunday, October 25, 2015 at the funeral home.
