Obituary

Walter Lucas “Luke” Gooch
Funeral Services for Walter Lucas “Luke” Gooch will be held Wednesday, May 13th at 2 p.m. Due to the State of Oklahoma pandemic gathering guidelines, a drive-up parking lot service will be held at the Cushing First Baptist Church. Pastor Paul Calmes will officiate. A committal service will follow in the Lawson Cemetery at Yale, Oklahoma. Funeral services were entrusted to the care of Michael’s Funeral Home of Drumright. Online condolences may be expressed at www.michaelsfuneralservices.com.

Walter Lucas “Luke” Gooch was born on February 4, 1970 to the late William Walter Gooch Jr. and the late Patricia Lambert Thomas. He went to be with the Lord on May 7, 2020 at the age of 50 years, 3 months and 7 days. Luke was a 1988 graduate of Yale High School. He learned to board draft in high school at Central Tech and secured a job as a draftsman for Skinner Tank. In February of 1990 he joined the United States Air Force and served during both Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm. He moved to Tahlequah in 1994 and enrolled at Northeastern State University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in History and minored in English. Luke married Penny Nicholson in Tahlequah, Oklahoma on November 25, 1995. They raised three boys, Tyler Nicholson age 27, Graham Gooch age 21, and Kevin Gooch age 14.
Luke relocated his family to Drumright in 2005 when he took a job at the Pawnee Bill Ranch. The oilfield boom lured Luke back to drafting. He had his own Farmers Insurance agency in Drumright in 2008 but his failing health forced him to disability. Luke was a dialysis patient who often baffled and frustrated the medical community. He was diagnosed with kidney damage in 2005. He was on and off dialysis from 2011 to his death. Luke loved politics, fishing and reading but as his health declined and his interests molded to fit what he could do, he listened to the Blaze Radio, found support through various internet communities and offered up pithy and humorous posts on social media. Luke helped to found Victims’ Voices in 2009 and worked as the book keeper for the past 10 years. Luke consistently supported two charities: the John 3:16 Mission and Operation Underground Railroad. Luke’s heart pursued the Lord. He always slept with a small New Testament Bible at his side. Luke was a family man. He was a dad and he will be missed.
He leaves behind his wife: Penny Gooch of Drumright: Sons: Tyler Nicholson and fiance Sophia Harrod of Tahlequah – Graham Gooch of Drumright – Kevin Gooch of Drumright; Brother: Dale Gooch and Wife Deanna of Whidbey Island, Washington; Sisters: Amy McClure and husband Ron of Colorado – Jodie Dyer and husband Russell of Tulsa; Sisters-in-Law: Pandora Good of New Mexico - Dana Frisbie of Tulsa; Brothers-in-Law: Lewis Ping Jr. of Illinois - Joe Woltering of Illinois; Uncles & Aunts: Roger and Rita Lambert of Texas – Barbara Lambert of Purcell – Robert and Roxann Gooch of Kellyville – Edith and Don Schiller of Pryor; Nieces and Nephews: Lauren Lemmel - Hailey McMoore - Hannah McClure - Alison McClure - Hayden McClure - Rachel Mowarin - April Dyer - Griffin Dyer - Lewis Ping III - Heidi Goodrich - Laci Ping - Kylie Curson - Julia Frisbie; and numerous other family members and friends.
