Tuscaloosa, AL – Mr. Cameron Luke “Fluffopotamus” Ratliff, age 23, died Friday, April 2, 2021 at DCH Regional Medical Center following complications from Covid-19.
A service to celebrate Luke’s life will be held at 2:00PM on Sunday, April 11th at First Baptist Church, 309 Lee Avenue, Wadesboro, NC. (The church service will be shared via Leavitt Funeral Home’s Facebook page.) Interment will follow in Anson Memorial Park. The family will greet friends in the cemetery following the conclusion of the services.
Due to the continued COVID-19 risks, we ask that you practice social distancing at all times. The family would like for those attending the service or paying respects at the home to please wear a face covering.
Born May 21, 1997, Luke was the second of three boys to bless the lives of Bryan and Pam Ratliff. Now the fact that Luke was a life-long Alabama fan is, by itself, not that unusual until you consider that he was born in North Carolina and raised in Anson County. Not to be discouraged by his Tarheel roots, Luke would tell his Crimson Tide family that he may not have been born in Alabama but he got there just as quick as he could! As a 19 year old, bright-eyed freshman, the theme song Luke used while moving into his first dorm room was Stars in Alabama. Friday night, as a 23 year old senior, we’re sure that Luke’s star began to shine brightly over Alabama and will continue to shine for years to come in the hearts of those who knew him.
Survivors of the University of Alabama’s #1 Superfan include: his parents, Bryan Keith Ratliff and Pamela Lett Ratliff; two brothers, Brandon Ratliff and Noah Ratliff; his paternal grandmother, Esta Ratliff; his maternal grandmother, Angie McCormick; and many hundreds of University of Alabama fans in Tuscaloosa, the state of Alabama and all across Bama Nation. Roll Tide!
Memorials may be made online in Luke’s memory at a GoFundMe page titled: A Tribute to Luke "Fluffopotamus" Ratliff. The page is sponsored by Alabama Coach Bryan Hodgson and the beneficiary is Luke’s mother, Pam Ratliff.
