Christopher L. Norcross

     Christopher Lucas “Luke” Norcross, 22, of Scottsville, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, February 6, 2020 at his home surrounded by his family and special friends.

     Luke was born on March 14, 1997, in Charlottesville. He is the son of Chris and Carol Norcross of Scottsville.

   Luke had a smile that everybody fell in love with.  He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, fishing, hiking and kayaking.  He enjoyed sports and played football and lacrosse from a very young age and attended Fluvanna County Public Schools and graduated from the Blue Ridge School in St. George, VA in May of 2015.  He was an outstanding football and lacrosse player.  He earned an academic and athletic scholarship to continue his education at Davis and Elkins College in Elkins, WV.  While at D&E, Luke was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity and was a goalie on the lacrosse team.  As a goalie, Luke set a school record for the most saves in a single game with 30 saves.  This accomplishment also earned him a spot in the NCAA record books. He was also named to the 2017 Lacrosse All-Flow Team.  Luke graduated Davis and Elkins in May 2019 with a BA in Criminology.  Luke always wanted to become a police officer, and with the kindness, compassion and generosity of the Fluvanna County Sheriff’s Department, Luke’s dream came true when he was presented with a certificate, arm patch, hat and badge making him an Honorary Reserve Deputy just moments before he passed.

   Luke also wanted to give back to the game he loved by coaching youth lacrosse.  He coached in the summers when he was home from college and was going to be an assistant coach at Fluvanna County High School this spring.  He was always a quiet, strong, selfless young man and those that knew him know he was a man of few words, but he was also very kind, caring, and fun-loving.  He loved his family and friends and always put their needs and feelings above his own.

   Luke will never be forgotten and will be greatly missed by all those that love him.

   He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents: Raymond and Peggy Norcross; maternal grandfather: Bill Wigley; and an uncle: Tommy Hall.

   He is survived by his parents: Chris and Carol; his sister: Laci and her boyfriend, Noah Branch; his maternal grandmother: Lynn Wigley; his girlfriend: Kristen Thomson; his uncle: Ray Norcross and wife, Alisa; his aunts: Pam Norcross Hall and Kim Norcross and her boyfriend, Chris Uhler; and a special aunt: Karen Norcross Rinaldi and husband, Marc who helped him along his journey.  He is also survived by many cousins; and his dogs: Winston and Bailey.

   A funeral service will be conducted at 2:00 pm on Monday, February 10, 2020 at Fox Memorial Baptist Church in Scottsville by Pastor Randy Golladay.  Interment will follow in the church cemetery.

 The family will receive friends from 6:00 until 8:00 pm, Sunday evening, February 9, 2020 at Fox Memorial Baptist Church. 

   In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of the Piedmont: 675 Peter Jefferson Parkway, Suite 300, Charlottesville, VA 22911.

Chris, Carol and Laci, we are so sorry for your loss. Words cannot really convey our feelings at this time. We want to thank you for sharing Luke with our family. It was an honor to know him and watch him grow into the fine young man he became. He will always be a sweet memory.

Chris and Carol, I am so sorry to hear of Luke’s passing. It was a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with Luke. It is no surprise to learn of Luke’s success both on and off the field. The day I met Luke, I could see his work ethic. I am so very happy that he was able to enjoy the success from that ethic and share his experience with young players. He had great impact on so many and his impact will always be with you and all who knew Luke. So sorry I can not be in town to support you. Please never hesitate to call. My most supportive thoughts are with you.

Chris, Carol, Laci, Kristen and all of your family, by now I know you are seeing and hearing about all the lives that Luke touched and had an impact on. I personally feel privileged to have have known him, coaching him early as a Lacrosse goalie and also when he returned to give back and coach beside me. Everyone that met him loved Luke because he was such a kind genuine person besides being a fierce competitor. I know he fought so hard and he always kept a positive attitude. He was so brave and courageous beyond his years. We like so many are heartbroken along with you and offer our deepest sympathies from all of our family to yours.

I met Luke while we both attended Blue Ridge a few years ago. Although we never made it past acquaintances, I could tell he had a good head on his shoulders and had a bright future by the way he held himself. My thoughts and prayers are with the rest of the Norcross family.
