SHAWN LUCAS' funeral and more
Shawn met a lot of people in his life, but wasn't like anyone you would ever meet or forget. He was someone you remember after only meeting once, someone who you want to have with you at every occasion because he just made it better. He brought light to every room, every situation, and always had a handful of witty comments no-one else could say more perfectly or think of on the spot and have ready at the tip of his tongue. Everyone has their own connection and closeness to Shawn, he was a friend to the universe and such a joy to be around. The sense of loss and thought of him not being here is overwhelmingly painful. It cuts the DC city deep.
Shawn never really asked for anything, but he offered so much. During this time of grief, we would like to help support his family with the costs of putting such a life force to rest. Please share your love and support. This is our chance to give back all Shawn gave to us, and take care of him… the way he constantly did to everyone else.
Thank you for the overwhelming love and support from around the world. It shows how far and wide his impact was on everyone who knew him.
Shawn Lucas is survived by his loving partner Savannah King, his brother Justin Lucas, his father William Lucas, and his mother Susan Lucas.
100% of this will go to the funeral and family of SHAWN LUCAS.
Here are a few words from his brother:
Shawn Edward Lucas
June 11, 1978 - August 2, 2016
You may know him as Astro or MCSL, but to me, he was the coolest damn brother to walk the earth! He always followed his heart and lived life on the edge. When he was 18 he wanted to go snowboarding, so he moved to Colorado. When he was 28, he wanted to learn Jiu Jitsu, so he went to Brazil for three months (three separate times). He wanted to create music, so he wrote and produced two hip hop albums. If you had the pleasure of meeting him, there is no doubt he had an impact on your life. He helped raise me and I wouldn't be who I am or where I am without him. The world just lost a bad ass mo fo and I just lost my big brother.
RIP Shawn. I miss you.
Thank you for everything that you've told me and thank you for being apart of my journey, you will be missed and it's so sad and kills me to see you gone but I know that you would want me to be strong and I will always do what you told me to. Rest In Paradise. ♥
Shawn, you paved the way for us to create Crankparty and were an endless supporter. We wouldn't have been able to do it without you and are forever grateful. The world has lost a great man. Rest peacefully. See you on the other side. Much love, Nick, Jonna, Paige, and Zach
Berners will never forget you and the joy you shared with all of us as you, with delight, helped begin the movement to hold people accountable for their actions and take back the country. Reading about you as a person, a unique individual, somehow lets me know how that is a part of who you were. Rest well, Shawn. You will be remembered.
Standing for what he believed in, rising above the crowd was who he was, always a true hero. Thank you for gracing the world with your light.
My deepest condolences on your loss, I met Shawn through the music business, I liked him right away. Our lives were busy so I only had the chance to talk to him out at events, but from my talks with him I knew he was a man with integrity and I have deep respect for him. May he RIP.
I'm Cam Eskam's mother and he wanted me to let you know he loved Shawn so very much and you also Savannah !! You two are the best he said !! You helped him and he is forever grateful and me two !!
Sending my condolences RIP Shawn

He changed so many lives, ones he didn't even know about. Thank you for being such an amazing soul. Your energy was pure, for that I am grateful
