Lucas Alexander Salem, age 20, a lifelong resident of Stamford, CT passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, February 4, 2017. He was the beloved son of Mary Savastano Salem and the late Norman J. Salem, Jr. He was the brother of Angelica Mae Salem, and boyfriend of Mia Vitti. Lucas was the devoted grandson of Orlando L. and Maureen M. Savastano, and Mary B. Salem.

Lucas was also the adoring cousin of Ross, Samantha, Andrea, Carl, Jessica, Jonathan, and Christopher. Lucas was a graduate of Trinity Catholic High in Stamford, CT and took classes at Norwalk Community College. He was employed full time at Marine Max in Norwalk, CT, where he developed many wonderful relationships with his colleagues. Lucas was also a member of the Rhode Island Anglers Association. Lucas had a zest for life and will be dearly missed by all who knew him. His smile and the twinkle in his eyes will be missed but not forgotten. Lucas’ passion for the ocean and fishing with his grandfather were his greatest joys. He loved with abandon and would do anything for those fortunate enough to know him. For those who loved him, it is hard to image a world without him. Calling hours on Thursday, February 9, from 4-8 at Leo P. Gallagher & Son Funeral Home, 2900 Summer St., Stamford, CT.

Mary and Angelica,
I am so very, very sorry. I have many fond memories of Lucas in Sr. Marie's 2nd grade. I remember when he brought his new rosary beads to school to show the class. He received them as a gift for his First Holy Communion. He was so please and proud of them. Along with his classmates, I was allowed to see them but not touch them. That's how very special they were to him. May you find comfort in knowing that he was loved by many. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Rest in Peace dear Lucas.

Our love and prayers are with you. Stephen friendship with Lucas since elementary school developed into brotherhood in recent years. I enjoyed seeing Lucas over the house and at many of Steve's backyard bonfires. My Uncle Fr. Stephan Lasko, Cssp said in one of his sermons, "We though many, are one body in Christ" Beyond your home, in faith, Lucas's family include all of his classmates, who loved him dearly. They will continue to honor Lucas in memory and deeds as they live the rest of their lives. We miss him profoundly and please know that we are here for you.
