Lucas Frank Kartz of Saginaw
Passed away on Thursday, June 23rd, 2022, at the age of 24. Lucas was born on December 9th, 1997, to Matt & Angela (Wills) Kartz and was a graduate of St. Charles High School. He spent his time working in the construction field but preferred playing guitar, gaming, and spending time with friends. Lucas was a sports fan, supporting his local Bulldogs baseball team as well as the Detroit Tigers. He also loved animals and was affectionately known as “Uncle Lucas.” Lucas is remembered as being an independent, if stubborn, free spirit with a weird sense of humor that made his friends love him, but most of all as being kindhearted.
Lucas is survived by parents Matt Kartz and Angela Kartz; his brother Brandon Kartz; grandmother Mary & Ronald Zarko; and Matt's special friend Vicky Ryder; as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, other family members, friends, and many animal companions.
Lucas was preceded in death by grandparents Joy & Frank Kartz, and Henry Wills.
In accordance with Lucas’ wishes, cremation has taken place, and there will be a private family memorial service at the W.L. Case & Company Funeral Home. The family has requested that, in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
