This page is beng set up to help defer the costs of an unexpected tragedy.
Sunday may 3rd both 7 year old Odin Lucas and his grandfather John Rutkowski were lost to us in what can only be described as a horrific accident.  While working in the family yard and trying to remove a tree from the property, the tractor that they were both riding tipped over and pinned them underneath. John died almost instantly while little Odin was left fighting for life until he passed away later that day at a nearby hospital despite the best efforts of first responders. 
Little Odin was a great child. Just last week he was working on his legacy tile. A piece that all second graders make before moving on to 3rd grade at Maryvale primary. He will be missed by all that knew him. 
His father Craig Lucas, owner of Shamus Mcinkys located in Buffalo NY and member of Boomtown Brothers facial hair club and competitor of multiple charity fundraisers in and out of Ny could now use our help in this his time of need. No monetary amount can ever offset the costs of losing a child and his grandfather, but we can at least reach out and take a small burden from the Lucas and Rutkowski family's shoulders. Please share and donate. Any and all money raised will be going directly to the family in this their hour of need.
