Robert P. Lucas, Jr.
The Lucas family is saddened to announce the passing of Robert P. Lucas, Jr., on Friday, September 6.
Bob was born on Martha’s Vineyard in 1962. He graduated from Upper Cape Vocational High School in Bourne, Class of 1981, and obtained his Master Electrician license at the age of 19. He was gifted in all aspects of his trade and later branched into large scale generator work.
Bob was helpful and kind to his parents and anyone who was down on their luck. Martha’s Vineyard was a big part of his life and he always spoke of his love of the Island and the lifelong friends he made there. In the last year of his life, he developed a strong spiritual connection.
Bob will be remembered for his quick wit, his love of animals and all things electrical, and his caring spirit.
Bob is survived by his parents, Robert P. Lucas, Sr. of Middleboro and Mary Lucas of Marion; his sister, Betsy Babbitt, her husband, Ben, and their son, Barry, all of Orlando, Florida; and his brother, Daniel Lucas, his wife, Jennifer, and their daughter, Charlotte, all of Wareham. Also his dear friend, Carol Rhoads of Marion and his devoted kitty, Zooey.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to CARE Acushnet, a cat and dog shelter. Please send checks to Carol Rhoads, 8 Lady Slipper Lane, Marion, MA 02738.
