Luke Pille, 53, of Plainview passed away unexpectedly in Willis, Texas on October
Luke was born on November 30, 1964 to Reicher “Rick” and Beverly (Hardtke) Pille.
He was raised in Plainview, graduating from Plainview High School in 1983. Luke
was currently an owner operator contracted with Valley Systems out of Chatfield. He
started his trucking career in the 80’s with Tom Zabel. He then went to work for
Putzier Trucking before moving on to Valley Systems. Being an over the road truck
driver Luke always said he didn’t need to go away on vacation because he could
see all the sights while he was driving. Luke enjoyed riding his Harley and spending
time with family and friends.

MN; 2 sisters, Laura (Scot) Penn of Cisco, TX and Lenora Pille of Plainview; nephew
