Thu, 06/27/2024 - 10:45

A memorial service for Lucas DeSario of East Hampton, who died at sea in June of 2023 at the age of 35 after having been missing for a few weeks, will take place on Saturday at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church on James Lane. “By remembering Luke, he lives in our minds and hearts,” his family wrote in an announcement. The service at St. Luke’s, from 3 to 8 p.m., will include an exhibition of the “beautiful legacy he left behind” — the many photographs he took over the years he lived here, which most often featured natural landscapes, water, sunsets, rocks, and birds.

His family previously suggested memorial donations to the Springs Food Pantry, 5 Old Stone Highway, East Hampton 11937, or to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, online at
