FIORELLA, Lucas Luigi Fiorella Obituary | Print |

FIORELLA, Lucas Luigi -

Fiorella_Lucas(April 21, 1995 - October 12, 2014)


It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Lucas on October 12, 2014.

Lucas will forever be remembered as a kindhearted son, brother, grandson, great-grandson, nephew, cousin and friend.

He will be greatly missed by sister Vanessa, mother Susan, father Sam, grandparents Luigi, Filomena, Valentine and Catherine, great-grandmother Giovanna, uncle Gabe, aunt Mary, uncle Dez, aunt Cheryl, cousins Savannah, Gabriel, Jacqueline, and Madelyn, and so many of the extended family and friends that are part of our lives.

Lucas was studying Robotics as part of the Computer Science faculty at Carleton University, a choice that was foreshadowed in pre-school where he was completing 50-piece puzzles and doing math equations before he learned to read. His favourite toys were “Bionicles”, Lego, and K’nex. He would immediately throw out the instructions that came with these kits and successfully built them on his own. He’d then tear them down and create something entirely new with the pieces. He was a builder, a connector, in both his hobbies and his life.

From a young age (starting in pre-school) he was fond of making up jokes, which he himself said were often “stupid” but he told them because he thought “well, a bad joke is better than no joke.” Indeed, his goal every day seemed to be to make people laugh and to bring joy to those around him.

Every one of his friends has stated that at one point or another, he made a difference in their lives by listening to them, offering a shoulder to cry on, and providing the counselling they needed. Many have said his presence and counselling had changed the course of their lives - so much so, that he considered pursuing a career in psychology. Making others happy was his life’s goal. Unfortunately, allowing others into his world and sharing his own feelings was too difficult for him.

Lucas’s life is not measured by the years he lived. The impact Lucas had on the lives of those around him in during his almost 20 year life is equivalent to what most people struggle to accomplish in a full life span.

Arrangements out of Oakville. Funeral service will be held on Friday, October 17th at 1:00 p.m. at Mary Mother of God Roman Catholic Church, 2741 North Ridge Trail, Oakville. Entombment to follow.
