Lucas Westgate

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Lucas Westgate. Born on August 5, 1988, our beloved son, brother, family member, and friend passed away on January 12, 2020, at the age of 31.

A welding superintendent, Lucas worked on projects for clients ranging from local schools to NASA. He was proud of his professional accomplishments, most notably his contributions to the Orion Launch Pad project.

In his short time with us here on earth, Lucas lived and loved with passion. He was a lover of music, animals (especially his rescue dog, Boomer), and travel. A fun-loving, adventurous spirit, Lucas was thrilled to include in his journey experiences such as Burning Man and Hulaween.

Lucas is survived by his parents, Joseph and Karen Westgate, and sisters, Mallory Guarino (Michael) and Stephanie Langner (Gary). He also leaves behind grandparents, Merrill and Virginia Robb, and Lenore Imondi. He will be tremendously missed by his many cousins, nieces,and nephews.

Lucas is preceded in death by his sister, Meghan Westgate, and grandfather, Robert Imondi.

To all of Lucas's loved ones, I can not imagine what you are going through but Lucas would of wanted us all to smile and be happy just as he was every time I saw him. He lit up any room with his infectious laugh and quirky remarks and he genuinely had the biggest heart. He made such a massive impact on me and my family and the world will not be the same, but Lucas will always be remembered for his amazing soul, he truly was one of a kind with the most beautiful smile I have ever seen. I'll make sure to play our favorite tracks Lucas and I'll see you at a Jim Morrison concert sometime or another. Love you forever
