Lucas Dale Barto was born into this world on January 15, 2022 at Riverside Methodist Hospital, and called back to Heaven just a few hours later to serve as one of God’s Angels.
Luke is survived by his parents, Dillon and Emily (Juhola) Barto; grandparents, Christi and Ralph Doak and Denise and Michael Juhola; great grandparents, Mary and Dale Sprang, Mary Taylor and Rosemary Juhola; aunts, Abby Juhola and Jenna (fiancé, Jack Smith) Barto; and his uncle, Alex Doak.
While we are very sad that we had just under nine hours with Luke, we are grateful for his blessing and the opportunity to shower our love upon him by taking many, many pictures of him, holding him in our arms, attending his baptism conducted by Ed Beeson and saying our final “earthly’ goodbyes. We are comforted in knowing that Luke is now in Heaven with our loving God, the many relatives who have gone before him and that one day we will be reunited with him. In the meantime, we will all dearly love, cherish and miss Luke.
Services conducted by Ed Beeson will be held privately for the family and burial follow at the Raymond Cemetery. Arrangements are being handled for the family by Wilson Funeral Home, Mannasmith Chapel 621 W. Fifth St. Marysville. Memorial contributions can be made to the Trisomy 18 Foundation in care of the funeral home. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.wilsonfuneralhomesinc.com
