I just now saw this message. I knew Gene was having
trouble walking but I didn't think he was terminal... I did
ask him if he was ok but he did not wish to relay any
information regarding his health...
A truly brilliant guy. He will be missed - at least by me.

Subject: [sac-forum] News of passing of Gene Lucas
I received word today of the passing of Gene Lucas. Gene was a founding
member of SAC back in the late '70s. I spoke to his nephew, Joel Lucas who
told me Gene passed away on December 8th. Arrangements are not finalized at
this time. Joel said he would share those details with the local astronomy
community when they are known.
Rest in peace, Gene.
