Lucien was a devout communicant of the Holy Family Church and was also involved with the CYO in his youth. Lucien was highly competitive, and thoroughly enjoyed playing games with his friends and family such as horse shoes, cribbage, softball, quoits, cornhole, and bowling. Lucien participated in a bowling league for many years at Walnut Hill Bowl with his friends and family; having developed a strong presence in the community over the years. Lucien also greatly enjoyed trips to the beach, Florida, New York City, live music, and dancing. He truly had a heart of gold and prided himself in servicing others whenever needed. Lucien was a true gentleman and his laughter was absolutely infectious.
