Lucas G. OswaldJuly 14th, 2021
Lucas G. Oswald, 16, of California, Mo., was granted his wings on Monday, July 5, 2021, at Women's and Children's Hospital, surrounded by his loving family and friends. He was born September 15, 2004, to Matthew and Tabatha Oswald of California, Mo. Lucas attended California High School and was employed at Burgher Haus in California. Lucas enjoyed sports, especially basketball. He also enjoyed fishing, helping his mom at the daycare by playing with kids, playing Xbox with friends and flipping/jumping on the trampoline. Lucas had a fun loving personality that could light up any room. He enjoyed the outdoors and was always ready to climb a tree or lend a hand in the garden. His greatest love came from spending time with his family and friends. Lucas was preceded in death by grandparents, Gene Meyer and Mel Ott; and aunt, Lisa Oswald. He is survived by parents, Matthew and Tabatha Oswald, California; brother and sisters, Austin, Lakota, Anabelle Oswald, California; grandparents, Janet Meyer, California, Bernie and Debby Jaegers, Linn, Deborah (Bun) Ott, Eugene; great- grandparents, Bill and Carol Hake, Taos; numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. Lucas' unexpected passing was due to AVM. His loving and giving spirit will live on because he donated all vital organs. As a super donor, Lucas helped many others get their miracle they have been waiting for. A time of gathering will be held at First Baptist Church-Family Life Center, on Friday, July 16, from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. A Celebration of Life will be Saturday, July 17, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. at First Baptist Church-Family Life Center.
