He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, James A. Grow, paternal grandfather, David Heath, and his sister, Lindsey Heath.

Lucas is survived by his mother, Teresa L. Heath of Bellefontaine; father James D.

(Ayiende) Smith of Riverview, Fla.; maternal grandmother, Patricia Knox Pinks of Bellefontaine; paternal grandmother, LaDonna Fry Heath of Quincy; nieces and nephews, Zack Heath, Zarik Deere and Kayla and Jayden Smith; his cousins, Tricia Slaven, Lacey Grow, Dusty and Cody Jarrett and Curtis and Jon Morgan; and many aunts, uncles, great-aunts and great-uncles.

Lucas was a fun-loving, gentle kind soul. He would never say no to anyone. He was the best father, husband, son, brother and uncle.

His goal in life was to make his daughters and wife feel safe and loved and to never let them go without anything. He attended South Bay Church in Florida and was baptized on June 26, 2016. He was the owner/operator of LJH Handyman Services in Florida.

Lucas was always teaching his daughter, Kiliana about construction, how to work on cars, how to fish and he loved to take her horseback riding. He loved to talk to family, friends and even strangers. He always looked at all people equally. He loved and was loved by so many and had energy that with just one encounter with him, you would remember him for life.

He is now in heaven with his big sister, Lindsey, where they are safe and feeling the love of God. They will be forever be loved and missed.

Funeral services are at 3 p.m. Friday, April 19, at Eichholtz Daring & Sanford Funeral Home, 101 Zanesfield Road, West Liberty, following visitation that begins at 1 p.m. Blake Kenner officiates and burial follows in Bellefontaine Cemetery.
