WEST BOYLSTON - Lucas Nathaniel Rinker of West Boylston, residing in Leominster, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday March 20, 2021 at the age of 19. Lucas was born on February 12, 2002 in Cooperstown, New York. He attended West Boylston schools and graduated from Greenfield Commonwealth Virtual School. Despite being dated in 2020, he earned his diploma in 2019 and started college in 2020 at DeVry University for business where he was on the Dean's List. He later received his license for business to further his career. Alongside school he worked 144 hours a week at multiple jobs; his favorite was Home Depot. He kept going, until he couldn’t anymore. He was proud of how hard he worked. His highest honor was becoming an Eagle Scout for troop 151. His Eagle Scout project is a monument of the battlefield cross for fallen soldiers in West Boylston. No matter how impossible it looked, he showed everyone he could get his project done. On New Years of 2021 he suffered a grand mal seizure that should have took his life, weakening his heart. It left him in tremendous pain. He still kept going. He will be deeply missed by his parents, Tracy Rinker of West Boylston, Richard Rinker and stepmother, Diana Rinker of Holden; his sister, Amanda Rinker; and his brothers, Arthur Rusaikin and Thomas Rinker. His family and friends will miss his beautiful spirit. We can all learn a lesson from Lucas: No matter how hard something seems just keep going. Don’t worry about what others think, let your uniqueness radiate. I wasn’t prepared for God to take your hand this soon. He saw you were in pain and called you home. Lucas you are so loved. I know you are watching from above as all who love you lay you to rest with the black and gold you wore so proudly. With your shining spirit and sharp attire many called you dark angel. All that glitters is not gold and not all who wander are lost. Keep shining, and keep wondering, Lucas. You are and always will be loved. A private graveside service will be held at Mt. Vernon Cemetery in West Boylston. Funeral arrangements are under the care of Miles-Sterling Funeral and Tribute Center, 100 Worcester Road, Sterling.
