Luciano "Luc" Clayton Schincariol

August 5, 2002 — June 25, 2021


It is with sadness yet trust in the mystery of God’s plan; that we share the sudden passing of Luciano "Luc" Clayton Schincariol. Luc was a humble, compassionate, helpful, and intelligent young man. He had a unique and fascinating perspective on many things, grand and small.  Luc had just graduated with honors from Paw Paw High School where he was a four-year member of the Jazz Band and National Honor Society. He had an endearing low-key personality and style of his own. Luc was cool. He volunteered with The Paw Paw Lions Club Christmas baskets and Freshwater Community Thanksgiving; He was a regular lector at Saint Mary Church. He had a dedicated passion for the arts as exhibited in his musical talents and growing abilities of illustration, painting, and creative writing. He was an avid reader and student of musical and cinema production that spanned many genres. Luc was a talented musician. He was a member of the Youth Band at Red Arrow Ministries, playing his bass guitar. Luc enjoyed hiking, running, fishing with his grandfather, and playing catch with his best friend, his younger sister Ruby.  Luc loved to travel and recently returned from a hiking and biking trip to his favorite place on Earth, The Grand Canyon. Luc was a reliable and hard-working member of his family business. He was excited to be enrolled to begin classes this fall in the College of Arts and Letters at Michigan State University.
