Charles Luther Daukei

Charles “Louie” Luther Daukei

Charles “Louie” Luther Daukei lived life by his terms and made many memories along the way. He never stayed in one place too long, but always considered New Mexico his home. He was considered a second father to his nieces and nephews and was a favorite brother to his siblings. Louie was a loving man, but also had a wild side that would either make you laugh or frustrate you! Some may say that the movie Urban Cowboy was loosely based on his life. For a man who didn’t have a car, he sure got around. Louie will be missed dearly, but he can now lay his long traveling feet to rest.


Charles Luther Daukei was born October 19, 1963 at Clinton, Oklahoma, to Horace Daukei/ Erma Whiteagle Blackbear and passed away November 24, 2021, at the age of 58.
