Joseph Donald Lucas

Lucas
Joseph Donald "Jody" Lucas

Mr. Joseph Donald Lucas, affectionately known as Jody Lucas, 73 Brilliant, in the Pea Ridge Community, passed away on Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2018.
He was born on Jan. 8, 1945, in Lamar County to Arthur Lee and Shalar Lucas.
At a very young age, Mr. Lucas started working on his family farm along with his brothers and sisters. As an adult, he worked in the garment industry, logging business, and strip mines until going to work in the coal mines.
Often, there were times that he did not see the daylight for several days due to the number of hours he worked. Mr. Lucas remained working in the mines until he retired. However, retirement did not slow him down. He went to work for Marion County Rock and then acquired a job with Marion County working for District 5 County Commissioner Bob Burleson until approximately three months ago.
Mr. Lucas is remembered as being a hard worker and a good provider for his family. He was a loyal friend and always willing to lend a hand. He was kind-hearted and generous, especially to his family. He loved to bale hay, watch his cows and birds and ride his grandchildren on the golf cart. He was not above hiding treats in his overall pocket to give to his grandchildren when their parents were not looking.
Mr. Lucas was preceded in death by his parents, brothers W. T. Lucas, Garland Ray Lucas, Jerry Lucas, Larry (Pee-Wee) Lucas, Gary Lucas and one infant brother; sisters Lovie Lucas, Bulah Mullins, and Kathy Lucas; and in-laws Clyde and Eunice Jones.
He is survived by his wife, Nelda Jones Lucas; sons - Rodney (Dadra) Lucas and Lance (Melissa) Sexton; daughters - Paula (Kent) Ledbetter and Tammy (Ray) Barnett; grandchildren - Morgan (Chad) Hudson, McCall Barnett, Kristen (Tyler) Moore, Daniel Lucas, Kadra Lucas, KaLeah Ledbetter, and Brandy (Coty) Nix; great-grandchildren - Lucas Hudson, Jax Hudson, Parker Moore, Spencer Moore, Marlee Moore, and Riley Nix; brothers - Rayburn (Sue) Lucas, Carl (Glenda) Lucas, and Buddy (Martha) Lucas; and a sister - Ruby Palmer.
Mr. Lucas loved God, his wife, his family, friends and church family. He loved sitting on the porch in his rocking chair visiting with family and friends. He also enjoyed working in his garden.
His children and grandchildren consider him their hero. They always thought he could do anything and, if it were within his power, he would make certain it got done.
Mr. Lucas was devoted to his wife and never failed to tell and show her each day.
His love for God and his family was evident to all who knew him.
Mr. Lucas’ family is rejoicing his homecoming, yet mourning their loss of this precious, humble man.
Funeral services were held on Friday, Nov. 23, 2018, at noon from the Bowen Funeral Home Chapel with burial in the Mount Olive Cemetery. Brother David Sullivan was the officiating minister.
The family requests in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Philadelphia Church, located at 9588 State Highway 253, Brilliant, AL 35548
