He entered mortality on Sept. 15, 1995, at Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska. His birth and life were miraculous; his passing, premature.
Lucas Tyler Turknett returned to his Savior on August 21, 2018.
Sharp, handsome and clean-cut, Lucas won friends in high and low places everywhere he went. Like his brothers and father, he had a beautiful singing voice.
Lucas graduated second in his class at Benny Benson High School in Anchorage, Alaska, in 2015. He loved landscaping and cooking, and planned an accounting career.
Lucas noticed those who were alone. He would introduce himself, befriend them and maintain the friendship at length.
Described as "hyperintelligent," he loved the game Cash Flow and aimed to own apartment complexes to enjoy the fruits of passive income.
Lucas' absence has left a chasm in the lives of his loved ones. His engaging personality is sorely missed. We know that we will be together again: our religious motto is "Families Are Forever."
Lucas was received by his oldest brother, Burton; grandfather, John Turknett; and grandmother, Natty Ibanez.
He is sorrowfully survived by parents, Steve and Velia (Val); brothers, Scott (spouse, Marjorie; and children, Rosemary, Bruce and Ronan); Christopher (spouse, Becky; and children, Landon and Sophia); Houston (spouse, Barbara; and children, Jacob, Shilo and Lily) and John; as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Lucas is buried next to Burton in New Mexico.
A memorial will be held on Sunday, Sept. 16, 2018, at 5 p.m., at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Chapel at 10012 Chandalar Street in Eagle River, Alaska. Service will be followed by dinner at a nearby home.
