Roman Nicklaus Astree

Roman Nicklaus Astree, 18, of Lancaster, passed away on Sunday, June 13th, 2021 at Hershey Medical Center.  Roman had several heart surgeries as a young child, and his death was related to his ongoing heart complications.

Born in York, PA, but a resident of Lancaster his whole life, he was the son of Kevin Nicklaus and Laurie Lee (Nagle) Astree.

Roman was a recent graduate of Hempfield High School and Lancaster County Career and Technology Center where he studied Interactive Media and Web Design.  While a student at Hempfield, he was a member of the Hempfield Marching Knights, Jazz Band and the Symphonic Band.  Roman also played trombone in The Bainbridge Band with his mom.

Roman spent most of his spare time running a Discord server and hosting an Online Gaming server that provided services to approximately 5,000 members.  Before high school he played basketball with Little Hoopers and HYA with his dad as his Head Coach.  Roman loved eating spicy food and spending time with the family cats, especially his cat Cheddar who was with him most of his years. He also spent several summers attending Camp Lionheart which offers resources for children with cardiomyopathy.

In addition to his parents, he is survived by a sister, Ella Astree; paternal grandparents, Donna Douglas-Bruce and Gerald Astree, maternal grandparents, Mike and Julie Nagle; a great-grandmother, Barbara Wilson; an uncle, Chris Astree; Aunts, Stephanie and Janae Astree; and a cousin, Ashton Astree.
