Lucas was born August 14th , 2001 at 5:39 PM. Our first precious gift that
would bring out the best in everyone that met him through his love to
create and explore everything in front of him. A lover of antique trucks
and cars, mechanics, boating, dirt bikes and ATVs, lacrosse, his brother,
family, friends, and of LIFE!
Lucas’ ability to think outside the box and to learn best by doing and
not observing, led to the traditional aspects of school not always being
his strength. As should always be expected, his family always supported
and encouraged the gifts Lucas possessed. In middle school, Lucas was
blessed to join Westminster Christian School in Palmetto Bay, Florida. Westminster embraced him and encouraged his creativity, while still trying to focus on the academics that many times proved challenging for Lucas.
In the summer of 2019, Lucas was able to use his gifts to help others.
He took a trip with Blue Missions to the Dominican Republic. It was the perfect experience to allow him to serve others by constructing water lines that bring clean water to the village of "Piedra Azul".
Lucas loved people in general. He enjoyed engaging in conversation with perfect strangers, especially when it had to do with his most prized possession, his 1957 Chevy 3100 pickup truck.
In January of 2020, Lucas was accepted to Universal Technical Institute
in Orlando and was so excited to begin in August of 2020. Through all the love, support and encouragement Lucas always received, he was confident and ready to live out his dreams as a mechanic to someday establish his own shop to restore antique vehicles.
On February 16, 2020, Lucas passed away in a boating accident in the
Florida Keys. He was enjoying two of the many things he loved most –
boating and being with his friends.
The stories are many, and his memory lives on through our words and
Cherish what is in front of you and encourage and respect the
gifts each one has to offer others. Do not wait for a tragic loss to prompt change. Strive everyday to become a better person for yourself and for the benefit of others.
There was no doubt that Lucas had Jesus in his heart. This was the last text he sent to his lacrosse coach the night before the accident. This speaks volumes about the person Lucas was, and sets a clear example for others to follow.
