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.
