He is one of the most important mainstream symbols in American legislative issues. He is all around considered by each individual from his ideological group. We lost this gem on December 29, 2020, at Ochsner-LSU Health Shreveport due to complications from COVID-19.
How much was the late Louisiana Rep’s Net worth?
He was one of the renowned names in the United States Representatives and American Legislative and managed to earn a remarkable fortune for himself. Though there are no legitimate sources verifying his actual net worth and is still under review. However, it is sure he was worth millions at the time of his death. Subsequently, we speculate looking at his lifestyle that he should possess strong total assets of around $100 thousand to $1 million out of 2020. There is no verified information backing up that statement.

Andrew Bautsch, Luke’s Spokesperson verified his death to Ochsner-LSU Health Shreveport dropped a post on Letlow’s Facebook page. It said “The family appreciates the many prayers and support of the past few days, but asks for privacy during this difficult and unexpected time,” Bautsch said in a statement. “A family statement and funeral arrangements will be announced at a later date.”

My motivation is the passion Luke and I both shared: to better this region that we called home and to leave it a better place for our children and future generations,”. She added: “I am running to continue the mission Luke started—to stand up for our Christian values, to fight for our rural agricultural communities, and to deliver real results to move our state forward.”
