Gordon A. Lucas Obituary
Lucas Gordon A. Lucas, 81, born November 3, 1935 in Columbus, OH, passed away March 8, 2017 at St. Ann's Hospital. A graduate of Central High School and a U.S. Air Force veteran, Gordon was the former proprietor of Lucas Hauling and retired from Anheuser-Busch Corp. with over 30 years of service. He was later employed by Napa Automotive delivering parts until the time of his passing. A wonderfully extroverted enthusiast of people and conversation, Gordon truly never met a stranger. Given enough time, he would discover a shared connection to every single person he met. Above all else, Gordon will be remembered for his strong work ethic and the love and dedication he displayed to his family through his selfless acts of service. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of more than 50 years, Kay (Keels) Lucas, and his parents Paul and Corimenia (Lewis) Lucas. Left to cherish memories of Gordon are his children, Randall (Eileen) Lucas, Maria Lucas, and Dr. Jonathan (Dara) Lucas; siblings, Iris Keels, Wayne (Louise) Lucas, Sharon (Stanford) Horek, and Mike (Chris) Lucas; grandchildren, Kalea, Keenan, and Jonah Lucas; cousins, Emily Lucas, Gillem Lucas, Flossie Gentry, Deloris Stewart, Nancy Keels, and Norman Langhorne; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Celebration of Life 10 a.m. Monday, March 20, 2017 in the chapel of DIEHL-WHITTAKER FUNERAL SERVICE, 720 E. Long St., where his family will receive friends from 9 a.m. until the start of service.
