URBAN EUGENE LUCAS

August 13, 1926 – May 29, 2012

It is with profound sorrow

and deep regret that we

announce the passing of

Urban (Luke) into the waiting arms of our Lord Jesus. Urban was predeceased by his wife Dorothy, parents Albert and

Elsie, brothers Merlin, Keith and Albert (Bunny) and sisters Yvonne, Eileen and Shirley.  He is survived by his twin sister Muriel (Mighty) O’Neil, brothers Carmen (Valerie) and

Donny; daughters Juanita

Lucas-Malley (John) of Cranbrook, BC, Linda Findlay (Jim) of Kelowna, BC; grandchildren Aaron, Joe, Corey and

Darcy; great grandchildren; Lucas, Dezaray, Aaliyah,

Teagan, Mica, Lillian, Skyla and Piper; as well as his

loving companion Antonetta (Nettie) Dewit.  Born in

Downyville, ON, he settled in Kimberley, BC, where he worked for Cominco.  He was a volunteer fire-fighter and member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles.  Moving his family to Cranbrook in 1970 he was employed by the City of

Cranbrook as a Fire-Fighter, then became an Emergency Paramedic where he maintained the position of Unit Chief

at the Cranbrook station until his retirement in 1990. 

He spent his last years in Kelowna “for warmer weather

and better golf.”  Urban will be best remembered for his

love of fiddling (he was a member of the BC Old Time

Fiddlers), clogging, infectious grin and laughter. Urban was also a devoted member of the Catholic Church. He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by all those whose lives he touched.  Father, Friend, Lover, Companion. 

Good-Bye Dad; missed but not forgotten. Love always. 

Memorial Service will be held at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, on Friday, June 1, 2012 at 1:00 pm.  Interment at later date.  In lieu of flowers,

memorial donations may be made to the Central Okanagan Hospice Association – Hospice House, 2035 Ethel Street, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 2Z6.
