Religious service was very important in Mr. Lucas' life, and he was an active member of Shiloh Baptist Church (Old Site). He worked tirelessly as a trustee, making sure the church was always well-maintained and ready for any event or occasion. He was an active member of the Church Aid Club and the church Home Mission clubs. In the community, he was probably the first and only male member of the Sylvannah Home Extension Club, an organization he joined to assist his late wife, Frances, in her role when she served as president. He was also an active member of the Fredericksburg Area Lupus Chapter and the Virginia Chapter of the Lupus Foundation of America.

Mr. Lucas lived in Spotsylvania, at his home of more than 50 years that he shared with Frances, who was called home to the Lord in July 2011. Until recently, he shared his home with his son, Reggie D. Lucas Sr. When he learned he had lung cancer, he moved to Greensboro, N.C., to live with his daughter, Cheryl, and her husband, Marty Hepburn Sr. During his stay in there, Mr. Lucas maintained his connection to his many friends through his cellphone, email and his favorite social media site, Facebook.

Survivors include his sons, Reggie D. Lucas Sr. of Spotsylvania, Ronnie S. Lucas of Greensboro; his daughter, Cheryl L. Hepburn (Marty) of Greensboro; his grandchildren, Reggie D. Lucas Jr. of Columbus, Ohio, Jasmine C. Hepburn of Rocky Mount, N.C., and Marty I. Hepburn Jr. of Boone, N.C.; one great-grandson, Reggie D. Lucas III; very special nieces Shirley Hill (James) of Stafford County and Carolene Lewis (Bruce); and other nieces and nephews, cousins and many friends he loved dearly.

The family will receive friends from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4, at A.L. Bennett and Son Funeral Home. The funeral will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 5, at Shiloh Baptist Church (Old Site.) Burial will follow at 1:30 p.m. in Quantico National Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, please make contributions to Montford Point Marine Association Chapter 32 Ladies Auxilary, Box 371, Stafford, Va. 22554.
