Lucas Farias, 23, died Oct. 9. He was born Aug. 10, 1993 in Chicago to Francisco Farias and Julie Gilbert.
Lucas, meaning bringer of light, was just that! He was a thoroughly unique individual. First and foremost, he was an excellent role model as a brother and a devoted son. He had high standards for everyone and he had a lot to be proud of. He recently graduated Cum Laude from DePaul University on a full scholarship, with a double major. Among many other things he was an enthusiastic conversationalist, a clever entrepreneur, a jack-of-all-trades musician, and an exotic tea connoisseur.
Collecting people was one of his favorite hobbies, and he had the most interesting array of company on any given day. Lucas didn’t even need luck, for he had an insatiable thirst for new experiences and took everything in stride like he had planned it the whole time. And he was an ambitious planner; Lucas didn’t just want to sail through life, he needed to be the captain.
He liked vaping, so of course the next logical step was to start his own successful business, the East India Vaping Company.
A well-known socialite, to many he was a playful companion with a wicked sparkle in his eye, a devilishly handsome grin, and a witty comeback. He was committed to self-improvement and was diligently training his lucky dog Charlie.
Lucas was a ray of sunshine and left an afterglow that those who knew him will be basking in forever. He will always be missed, and he will never be forgotten.
He is survived by mother, Julie Gilbert; father, Francisco Farias; brother, Liam Farias; sister, Liliana Farias of Chicago; grandmother, Kay Gilbert of Nobleboro; grandmother, Claudia Farias; and grandfather, Donaciano Farias of Chicago; and aunts, uncles, and many cousins and beloved friends.
Services will be held in Chicago in mid-November.
