June 23, 1994 - November 11, 2021
Lucas Anderson Spickard, 27, passed away on November 11, 2021. Lucas exuded Jesus’ presence in his life, and he eagerly awaited the eternal weight of glory in heaven with Jesus, not because of the hardship from his year and half with leukemia, but because his sure and steady experience of God assured him that the promise of heaven outweighed the temporary joys of the earth. Lucas brought a lighthearted steadiness to those around him. He deeply loved his wife, Hope, who he met as a freshman at Samford University and married on July 7, 2018. Their relationship was a joy and encouragement to all as they held a genuine zest for life — embracing every moment of their time together while also holding earthly life loosely. Lucas loved his family to the core. He radiated an anchoring, insightful, and playful influence. Lucas tenaciously pursued a master’s in accounting at Samford; he earned his CPA and launched his career at PwC. Lucas’ character and humor shined through in any context. When Lucas spoke, you wanted to listen. Each thoughtful word was ‘nothing but net’. He was an endurance athlete: an excellent tennis player and cyclist. The longer the match, the tougher the climb, the better. And it was with this same character, humor, and strength that he approached each day — with or without leukemia. Lucas is survived by his wife, Hope Thompson Spickard, parents Margaret and Anderson Spickard, sister, Anna Armstrong (Jake), brother, William, grandparents Sue and Andy Spickard of Nashville, TN, in-laws Karen and Alan Thompson of Columbiana, AL, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He is preceded in death by his grandparents Sally and Ted Hartsock of Charlotte, NC. Family and friends are welcome to attend a visitation on Friday, November 19, 2021 from 4:30-6:30pm at Christ Presbyterian Church at 2323 Old Hickory Blvd, Nashville, TN. A memorial service celebrating Lucas’ life will be held on Saturday, November 20, 2021 at 11:00am at Christ Presbyterian Church, with a brief visitation at 10:00am before the service. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Christ Presbyterian Church or the American Red Cross. Another way to honor Lucas’ life is to donate blood or platelets as the generosity of donors helped sustain his life, or you can join the Be The Match registry as a potential bone marrow donor.
