ANDERSON, LUCAS AITKEN, age 16, surrounded by family, friends and his beloved dog
Tucker, entered the kingdom of Heaven as its newest angel on July 8, 2012. Adored son of Christine Becker Anderson and Greg
Anderson and brother of Kaley, Evan and Cole; Lucas' beautiful spirit and sweet nature will be missed by all who knew him. Lucas is also survived by his maternal grandfather, Eric Becker, paternal grandmother, Janine Anderson, and several loving aunts, uncles and cousins. Lucas, a graduate of St Margaret Mary Catholic School and a student at Winter Park High School, will be missed by his countless friends, many of whom visited him over the past several months. These valued friendships meant the world to him and lifted his spirits. Lucas fought a long and valiant battle against osteosarcoma. His nurses and doctors worked tirelessly to treat Lucas and he made a lasting impression on all of them. In his last few weeks, Hospice of the Comforter provided nursing care with a team of angels on earth. Over the past several years, the family was sustained by countless acts of kindness from family and friends. The St. Margaret Mary Catholic Community, led by Fr. Richard Walsh and principal Kathleen Walsh, supported the family spiritually and Lucas left this earth secure in the knowledge that there is a place for him in heaven. Lucas' wake service will be held at St Margaret Mary Catholic Church from 6:00 - 9:00 PM on July 11. The funeral mass will be held at church at 11:00 AM on July 12. In lieu of flowers, the family would like to request that people wishing to honor Lucas perform an act of kindness, or make a donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation ( in Lucas' name.
