Always had lots of friends and enjoyed the outdoors, hiking, fishing, camping and liked sleeping in the great outdoors when camping. "Sleeping under the stars", as he would say!

After his mother's death he moved to Denver. He spent much of his time with his sister Lydia whom he always felt very close to. Lydia & Lucas worked as a team in his care and guidance.

Lucas enjoyed playing cards and no one could beat him at checkers. He read comic books, Science Fiction and westerns, loved good old western movies.
One of his greatest experiences was going on a cruise to Alaska with his sister Lydia and brother in law Ron.
