Robert P. Lucas Jr. died on Friday, Sept. 6.

Bob was born on Martha’s Vineyard in 1962. He graduated from Upper Cape Vocational High School in Bourne, class of 1981 and obtained his master electrician license at the age of 19. He was gifted in all aspects of his trade and later branched into large-scale generator work.

He was helpful and kind to his parents and anyone who was down on their luck. Martha’s Vineyard was a big part of his life and he always spoke of his love of the Island and the lifelong friends he made there. In the last year of his life he developed a strong spiritual connection.

He will be remembered for his quick wit, love of animals and all things electrical, and his caring spirit.

He is survived by his parents, Robert P. Lucas Sr. of Middleboro and Mary Lucas of Marion; his sister Betsy Babbitt and her husband of Orlando, Fla.; his brother Daniel Lucas and his wife of Wareham; a niece and a nephew; his dear friend Carol Rhoads of Marion; and his devoted kitty Zooey.
