William Joseph "Liam" Lucey Obituary
William Joseph "Liam" Lucey October 24, 1969 - August 9, 2018 Poway William Joseph Lucey passed away on August 9, 2018 surrounded by his family and friends, including his beloved wife, Jenny and children, Conner and Erin. As all who knew him can attest, Liam squeezed a lot of life and love into his 48 years on earth.Born in Cork, Ireland on October 24, 1969, Liam spent the majority of his childhood in the Riverdale neighborhood of the Bronx, NY. After majoring in hospitality management at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI, Liam moved out west to Redondo Beach, CA. There his hospitality skills and fun-loving personality charmed Jenny, the neighbor across the hall who later became his wife. After short stints working in Puerto Rico and Dallas, Liam returned to Redondo Beach in 1997 and started the commercial fleet management company that he successfully ran for decades. In 2005, he and his family moved to their current residence in Poway, CA.The same traits that made him a friend to so many - his generosity, loyalty, authenticity, integrity, etc. - served him well as he grew his company in a business dependent on relationships. His willingness to take risks and his uncanny ability to assess both people and deals quickly paid off.While Liam was a big person with a big personality, his heart was bigger still. He freely shared his blessings with everyone he encountered, even strangers he didn't know. Liam made life better for all who were fortunate to be in his orbit.In addition to his wife and children, Liam is survived by his parents, John and Elizabeth; siblings, Joanne (Kevin), John (Noreen) and Kevin (Lori); nieces and nephews, Christopher, Brendan, Ella, Jack and Leah; and countless close friends and relatives.There will be a service in memory of Liam's life at San Raphael Parish, at 17252 Bernardo Center Drive in San Diego on Friday, August 24, 2018 at 11am. There will be a second memorial service in New York on Saturday, October 20, 2018, at 12pm, at Saint Margaret of Cortona Church, at 6000 Riverdale Avenue in the Bronx.In lieu of flowers, please contact Liam's brother, Kevin ([email protected]) to make a donation to Conner and Erin's college fund.
