LCCC student Donald Eric Lucas died unexpectedly on Oct. 1, 2018. Lucas was born April 23, 1972, and he was originally from Alabama, and is survived by his mother, twin brother and a son.

Lucas served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1993-1995 as a MOS 5962-Marine Corps Tactical Data Systems Equipment (TDSE) Repairer. Lucas was also a member of the North Olmsted, Ohio VFW. Lucas was enrolled in the LCCC Vocational Rehabilitation Program, and the University Partnership program at the University of Akron. Lucas was 2 semesters away from receiving his associate’s degree.

A close friend, Jason Ardeneaux said, “Donald was a member of the “work-study” program at LCCC in the Veterans Services offices.” 

“He was a good man,” Ardeneaux said. “Lucas really was the kind of guy that would give you the shirt off his back.”
