Lincolnshire Live reports that Luke, originally from Skegness, was vacationing in Phi Phi Island while returning to his home in Sydney, Australia.

The stopover followed in the UK – his first in two-and-a-half years.

His family said on a GoFundMe page to repatriate his body: "A tragic event in Thailand has left this family utterly heartbroken and destroyed.

"Receiving a phone [call] that your child has passed away.

"Luke would give his last penny to any friend if he was asked."

Friends, including those in Australia, paid tribute to him being "really nice, warm, genuine guy", and "simply one of the best humans on the planet".


A coroner in Lincoln, Luke returned to his hotel.

A friend who was fast asleep at 4am, but he was found dead in the room.

Luke might have gotten out of bed, but tripped over the door of the door, according to a report from Thai police.

Coroner's officer Charlotte Alexander said: "It is believed that it was some time after 4am and it's gone through the glass doors to the balcony.

"His suitcase was between the bed and the door, so he had he tripped."


The cause of death was an abdominal haemorrhage as a result of abdominal injury, according to the post mortem.

Coroner Paul Smith ruled it was an accident and said: "The best evidence is that he was socializing at a festival.

"He had consumed some alcohol and he had his friends returned to his accommodation.

"During the course of the night he got up from the bed and suffered an accidental fall and suffered an injury that led to his death."

The Coroner said information from Thailand had been "sparse", yet "the police investigation appears to have excluded the possibility of third party involvement.

"There's no suggestion that any criminal act has been suspected or investigated."

After the hearing, Luke's dad Clive Goodere, retired policeman, said he had his job as a data analyst to "see the world".

He said: "Whatever Luke did, he did 100 percent." He was the most loyal of friends and excelled at sports, including rugby, fencing, tennis and golf.

"He travelled throughout Asia, Australia and New Zealand, where he made friends from all over the world.

"Luke lived life to the full, going sky-diving, river rafting, caving, ice climbing, riding horse, surfing, cage diving with sharks and bungee jumping.

"Years ago, when asked what he would do if he had a week to live, Luke said he would go to Phi Phi – exactly what he did."
