Nearly two weeks ago a longtime member of Bethany Presbyterian on Queen Anne Ave N passed away outside the church in the early morning. Deemed a natural death by police, the church opted not to reveal the man’s name until any family could be searched for. “He was not in good health,” was all Rev. Dan Baumgartner said at the time.
On Wednesday, March 31 at 7:30 p.m. the church will be holding a memorial service for Russ Luke, 75 when he passed. According to Baumgartner, the autopsy revealed that he died of heart failure. Anyone wanting to pay their respects to Luke is welcome to attend the memorial.
