Who is Lucas Tendler?
Lucas was born in Saranac Lake on April 25, 2006, to Rebecca and Jacob Tendler. From the very beginning, Lucas was a sweet and loving child who had a knack for making people laugh. He carried these qualities with him as he grew older and became a young man wise beyond his years. He had a natural ability to bring positivity into any situation, often using his quick wit and a quirky smile to transmute negative energy. Lucas possessed extraordinary empathy and compassion for others and the world around him, always ready to lend an ear or give a comforting hug. He had a great sense of humor, was silly and funny, and possessed a curious and intelligent mind that allowed him to engage in conversations with anyone.
Lucas had a deep love for animals and nature, and he felt fortunate to live in the beautiful Adirondacks. He enjoyed skiing with his brother Noah, hiking and swimming with his mom and beloved pet Johnny, building a small farm and caring for animals with his dad, camping under the stars with his best friend Logan, or simply spending time outdoors with his friends, known as “the boys.”
