A bright, beautiful man of many masteries, Lukas Benjamin Petersen Lerner passed away suddenly of natural causes on Friday evening, April 30, 2021. He was 36 years old. His devotion to truth and love brought him near and far and indulged him in many areas of expertise including sailing, bagpipe making, theology, philosophy, electrician, husband, and father. He was an idealist and strived for the well-being of all. The fire of humanity, love, and beauty was his priority to tend, and all that he valued. He is survived by his wife, Autumn Lerner, their children, 2.5-year-old Eveline and 10 month-old Remi, his Mother, Mary, his sisters, Hannah and Aren, his direct in-laws, Mark, Bonnie, and Casin Ward, and Auston Craig, as well as extended family and friends in various corners of the globe.

Lukas is one of the nicest men I have known. He loved his God. He loved his Family. He loved his country. I know his family will represent his enthusiasm for life and work that he had.
I was proud to know him.

Lukas who consistently out-hiked everyone. Lukas who climbed a mountain, backtracked and climbed the next one before the rest of the party even caught up with him. Lukas who excelled at anything he ever tried. Now he's on to further hiking grounds, ever summiting the next peak before his other earthly companions. Soar far. We love you Lukas. Pray for us. Bye for now.

I remember Lukas very well when he was at La Verna in Italy: his presence was always a sign of generosity, kindness and hard work for everyone. My prayers and my deepest condolences for his whole family.

Knew him only as a toddler and wish I had the opportunity to know him better. Clearly a loving man and father and like many before him capable of anythinbg he put his mind to. Love and thoughts to all those he left behind - you can rest assured that he continues to live in your heart forever.
