I just now found out about the Luc's passing. We went to UCLA together and part of a cadre of Bruins from Sproul Hall. My thoughts and prayers go out to Roz and daughters. He was a kind soul and knew he was the group's conscious and heart. Although we lost contact over years I am deeply sadden and we all are diminished with passing.
I am shocked at the passing of Luc Andre. We were roommates at UCLA and lost touch over the years. Whatever time that has passed, I will always remember him as a great human being with a kind heart and a gentle soul. My prayers are with Rosalind and his family. I will cherish my memories with forever.
May you rest in peace my friend.
To the family of Luc, my condolences to you with many Blessings. May God keep you strong during this time of sorrow. I have worked with Luc indirectly for many years at HUD, he was such a patient, sweet spirited person. He was definitely one of a kind in his profession. He was one to always get the job done and did not believe in giving up. Keep your spirits up and hold on to God's unchanging hand for he knows what's best.
I was always impressed by Luc's terrific sense of humor and his gentlemanly demeanor. He told me that I always made him laugh. I'm proud to have known him. He distinguished the human condition with his spirit, compelling thoughtfulness and love of his friends and family. Luc, Godspeed, and fair winds and following seas
To Luc's closest family and friends, please accept my sincerest sympathy for your loss. I worked with Luc at the Los Angeles DEC and consider him one of the best supervisor's I have ever worked with. He was a great leader, teacher, supportive, very easy to work with, and an overall good guy. My heart is heavy with sadness. Luc will be missed.
Although we worked in different program areas at the large office of the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in Los Angeles over a number of decades until my retirement last year, we still had meaningful personal and professional conversations from time to time. Luc was consistently gracious and honorable. Those were just two of his positive attributes out of many that garnered him so much widespread good will, respect, and admiration in our overall office. In deepest sympathy, R. (Scott) Reed.
The first thing I think of when I think of Luc is his big bright smile. Max and I have gotten together for many dinners and visits with Luc and Roz, especially over the last few years, and right up to last time I saw him, Luc had that big smile on his face and that is how I will remember him.
Lately I've been thinking back to high school days when Luc and I were on the track team at NHHS. One day we were supposed to be running several 220 yard dashes at three-quarter speed only. But near the end of the turn during one of the sprints someone started to accelerate and then the other one picked up his pace and before we knew it the race was on. Stride for stride at full speed we came down the home stretch trying to reach the finish line first. It was a near photo finish—I only edged him out because I started with a slight advantage to begin with. We had such youthful energy and exuberance back then. Those days seem so long ago and yet we've lost Luc way too soon. Luc, we'll miss you and your smiling exuberant face.
