Dan Charles Lucas passed away on December 20, 2018 in Billings, Montana. He was lovingly tended by his eldest daughter in his final hours. He is survived by his wife, two daughters, four adopted children, and seven grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, as well his only son from a previous marriage.

Dan was born June 11th, 1941 to Charles Franklin Lucas and Louise Dell Lucas née Fritter in Oroville, California, residents of a tiny Forest Service cabin in Belden, California. A few years later, they moved to the home in Paradise his father Charlie built for them, where Dan grew up and later raised his own children.

Dan attended high school and community college and was fixing things his entire life. He worked in repair in Victor’s, a metal tube factory, as a journeyman electrician, and in X-Ray repair. In his youth, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, home-building, and any kind of adventure in his pickup with a friend. He married his wife and life-partner Ruth in 1971. They loved camping together in Butte Meadows in the Lucas Ranch area where his ancestors once pastured their cattle. When his daughters were teenagers, he began racing go-karts, and spent many hours at the racetrack, always helping anyone who asked. He loved spending time with his children, and he cherished each chance to make memories with his wife, family, friends, and loved ones. Dan loved to laugh and joke and help people, and his ever-adventurous spirit will be missed by many.

A small memorial service will be held Friday, January 4, 2019 at 2pm at Calvary Chapel Chico.

((And, of course, the memory book online.))

My heart goes out to you and your family in this sad time of need. I am so sorry for your loss. Even with a firm hope for the future, death is still described as an enemy in the Bible at 1 Corinthians 15:26. In John 5: 28,29 it also gives us comfort by saying "Do not marvel at this because the hour is coming in which all those millions now dead will come to life again on this earth, and have the prospect of remaining on it forever under peaceful conditions. May this precious hope that awaits us and the love and support of family and friends bring a measure of comfort to you and your family now and in the days ahead.
