ugg montclair boots ‘Luke of Montana’ Dunlap
Luke was born on Sept. 19, 1939, in Billings to Clyde and Helen Dunlap. As a young man, he grew up in Billings and attended the public schools there. Marine Corps, where he had a distinguished career. At his retirement from his beloved Corps, he was recognized as having the best supporting war record in the Corps.
Upon his retirement, he moved to the Seeley Lake area and built his home on Beaver Creek. Sometimes, in a time of sorrow like this, we hear someone say, “I know they are in a better place.” For Luke, there was no better place than Beaver Creek, USA. In fact, if he could have negotiated with the Lord, he would have bargained to stay right there on the Beaver forever. He is, however, much better off where he is. Luke suffered greatly in the past several years.
On the day he passed,
the world lost a little of its color. Luke was a one of a kind original and unique. He was proud of his uniqueness and embraced it. With phrases like, “Hey, sugar bunny,” “Say good mornin’, sarge” or “When you comin’ up, I’ve got good coffee?” he made us feel special and welcome. He had one of the biggest hearts I have ever seen. Luke was known and loved by many and infamous in the Swan Valley.
Survivors include his son, Clayton of Costa Mesa, Calif.; his daughter, Teana Scott of Orange, Calif.; his sister, Constance Wein of Seattle; his brother, Dean Dunlap of Lewistown; and four beautiful grandchildren.
