Luke was born on Easter Monday, 13th April 1998, the only child of
David and Kim Somerfield.
He was brought up outside Bethlehem, a small village near Llandeilo, living on the highest
hill farm in the Brecon Beacons - a wild and beautiful place.
He attended the local primary school and spent a lot of time with his maternal
Grandparents and Aunt in nearby Llandybie while his parents were working.
He went to Tre-Gib Secondary
School which he loved and was extremely popular with his peers and teachers.
He enjoyed collecting automobilia
and riding his quad bike on the farm. He loved fishing with David from their boat off the Welsh coast and
going to the cinema with his Mother or Aunt Heather to see the latest movies.
On the 6th June Luke together with three school friends went to Cilyrychen Quarry. He got
into difficulties in the freezing water and tragically died later that evening at Morriston Hospital in Swansea.
David and Kim are determined that something positive will come out of what has happened and to that end
they have formed a charity, The Luke Somerfield Memorial Trust.
