Lucas Holbrook Ambler



Saratoga Springs, NY — Lucas Holbrook Ambler, 18, died unexpectedly in Saratoga Springs, NY on Sunday, August 21, 2022. He was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on September 29, 2003, to Holly Holbrook and Peter Ambler. After Peter's death, Holly married Scott Wesley Semple who adopted Lucas as his own son as a young boy.  

From a young age Lucas was fascinated by fashion and sports, mainly skateboarding and snowboarding. Lucas attended Gould Academy in Maine and Killington Mountain School in Vermont. Lucas touched the hearts of anyone who knew him. He was a great conversationalist and dazzled many friends and parents.   

Lucas will be remembered for spending hours in the garage modifying his car, his high-fashion style (especially his collection of sneakers), his love of music, and his magic smile. He was looking forward to attending classes at Skidmore College this fall. He will be greatly missed by all those who knew him.  

He is survived by his parents Holly Holbrook-Ambler and Scott Wesley Semple of Norwich; his brother Sebastian Holbrook Semple; maternal grandparents Tim and Frances Holbrook of North Pownal, VT; paternal grandparents Jon and Ann Ambler of Port Hope, ON; adoptive grandparents Jim and Linda Semple of Kaleden, BC; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, relatives, and wonderful friends.  

He was preceded in death by his birth father, Peter Ambler.  

At a later date, a memorial for Lucas will be held in Canmore, AB where he grew up.  

Knight Funeral Home of White River Junction is honored to be entrusted with services and online condolences to his family are appreciated at
