Obituary of Luke K. Furukawa

On October 30th, 2017, beloved brother, son and friend Luke Furukawa passed away at 23 years old. His kindness and seemingly effortless ability to spread joy will be forever engraved in the hearts of those that knew him. His work in life consisted of teaching everyone he met how to smile through anything. Whether pulling pranks on his siblings at home, coaching his wrestling students on how to push themselves further, or helping any one of his numerous friends through tough times by listening and being the compassionate, effervescent young man he always was; Luke smiled. He is survived by his mother, Lynn, his father, Satoshi, his sisters, Anne and Alyssa, and his brother, Jesse. A memorial service will be held at Germantown Friends School on Saturday, Novermber 11th at 2pm. Contributions to the GFS Wrestling program can be made in his memory and sent to 31 W. Coulter Street, Philadelphia, PA.
