Lucas "Luke" Brett Obituary

Lucas Dayle Brett, 36, of Newport, KY, formerly of Rising Sun, IN, passed away Sunday, September 24, 2023 in Cincinnati, OH. Luke was born in Cincinnati, OH on January, 15, 1987, a son of Tamara “Tammy” (Curry) Brett and the late Dayle E. Brett. Luke was raised in the Ohio County Community area and was a graduate of the Rising Sun High School Class of 2005. Luke was employed as a machine operator for Meggitt. Luke brought joy into every area of his life and the lives of those he knew and loved. His happy personality showed by him always smiling and being easy going. His greatest source of excitement was his passion for being a father to his newborn daughter Adayleya Rose and soon to be husband to his fiancé Mckenna Prakel, planning their beach wedding for June 12, 2024. Luke was a big sports fan, cheering for the Cincinnati Bengals, Reds, and U.C. Bearcats. He also played softball in Aurora, IN and enjoyed fantasy football. Luke continued his legacy of positively impacting the lives of others by giving the gift of being an organ and tissue donor.
