HE WAS a young man with a heart of gold who was always helping around the house.

“You were young, wild and a free spirit, nothing could stop you doing what you wanted to do,” mum Corina Surawski said.
“In the short time that you were here with all of us it was a blessing to have you around,” she said.
Luke was killed in a motorbike accident at Ganmain on February 19.
He had been riding with a family member and as they continued on the older man turned around to see where he was but he was no-where to be found.
Doubling back, he found Luke had crashed.
“There are no words to describe how we are all feeling at this time,” Mrs Surawski said.
He was more than just a son to his parents however and included his brothers in his adventures, whether it was yabbying or heading to the skate park in Junee.
“He has always been a loving brother to us all,” Luke’s younger brother Ashley Parker, 13, said.
“It is because he has always been there for me and all the people here today and his friends.
“Thanks for being there Luke,” Ashley said.
“I know he would be saying thanks but now he’s gone, he will always be in my heart forever and ever.”
In a tribute to the young man they all knew, his friends and family followed the cortège on their skate boards, scooters and bikes.
