Obituary

George J. Lucas, III, 73, of Exeter Township, peacefully left this world on Wednesday, March 27, 2019, in his home under the loving care of his family and hospice after a courageous 2 year battle with cancer. He was the husband of Kathleen N. (Latshaw) Lucas with whom he shared 51 years of marriage. Born in Reading, PA, he was the son of the late George J. Jr. and Vilma (Pendel) Lucas.
George graduated from Reading Central Catholic High School in 1963 and received his Bachelors degree from Kutztown University and obtained various advanced degrees from several Universities. He worked for Carpenter Technology Corporation as a Safety Engineer for 30 years until his retirement in 1999.
George enjoyed listening to music, especially the oldies, playing bass guitar in various bands, participating in sports and his weekly meetings with his breakfast club. He also loved constantly treating the family dogs to biscuits, however, his favorite thing to do was to float in his pool on a hot summer day.
Surviving in addition to his wife, Kathleen, are his children George J. IV and Melissa A. Lucas both of Mt. Penn; his pride and joy, his granddaughter Isabella A.; and siblings Gregory P. Sr. companion of Janet M. Husson of Sinking Spring, Dr. Geoffrey L. husband of Deborah A. of Oneida, NY, and Kathleen M. (Lucas) Angstadt wife of Mark W. of Exeter; Nephews and Nieces and his extended Latshaw Family. Visitation with family and friends will be held on Tuesday, April 2, 2019, from 10:00 am to 11:00 am with services beginning at 11:00 am in Lutz Funeral Home, Inc., 2100 Perkiomen Avenue, Reading. Interment will be held at Gethsemane Cemetery at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Animal Rescue League, 58 Kennel Road, Birdsboro, PA 19508.

I added a photo from the early days of the "band" . Bunch of skinny kids from the "corner" trying to make some music . George may have stood in the shadows but provided the true bass notes as a musician and friend . My deepest condolences to Kathy , Greg , Kathy , Geoff and family . Sorry I cannot be there to celebrate his life but I have fond and often silly memories of George and our young lives , "on the corner ".

There is so much sorrow in the world. But the death of our loved ones brings the deepest sorrow of all. Please accept my condolences. May God’s promise to help you through this difficult time bring you peace (Isaiah 41:10) and his promise for the future (John 5:28, 29) give you a wonderful hope.
