Colby Lucas Memorial

On Tuesday, September 25th, Colby Aaron Lucas was senselessly murdered in South Durham while getting gas on his way home from work. 

Shy of this 30th birthday, Colby was a man with a gentle heart, a biting wit, and a bright future ahead of him. Colby was a family man who worked incredibly hard to take care of his three beautiful boys: Jayden (11), Noel (7), and Caleb (2.5). Colby's fiance, Vanessa, mother, Rose, and sisters, Teresa & Jocelyn, are in the process of mourning their devastating loss while trying to assist police in finding the person responsible for this heinous crime. 

Please consider a donation of any amount to help Colby's family manage funeral costs, as well as supporting the on-going needs of his three growing boys who no longer have their father in their lives.
