Lucas Anthony Backhouse 2003-2021
It is with great sadness that the family of Lucas Backhouse
of Richardson Avenue, Garstang, announce his passing after
taking his own life on Saturday 16th October.
He was 18 years old and had found this World simply
too difficult to navigate.
Lucas went to SS Mary and Michael Primary school, Garstang,
before going on to study at LRGS. Here, he found his passion
for rugby and was also part of the school’s CCF. He then went
on to study at Cardinal Newman College, Preston.
Lucas was formerly also a popular member of the
Explorers’ Tankensuru unit with Wyre Scouts based in
Garstang. More recently he had started playing for
Garstang RUFC, showing promising talent.
He leaves behind his parents, Angela and Tony and
three brothers, Isaac (19), Freddie (14) and Joel (12).
Lucas’ funeral service will take place at
St Mary & St Michael’s RC Church, Garstang
on Thursday 4th November at 11.00am.
Family flowers only.
