It has been an honor and a pleasure to be part of the first Fairfield MFA graduating class.

Comment on Remembering Bill Lucas ’69 by Dr. Frank Olah '69 http://blog.fairfield.edu/web_features/2010/11/12/remembering-bill-lucas-69/comment-page-1/#comment-26 Mon, 22 Nov 2010 07:58:14 +0000 http://blog.fairfield.edu/web_features/?p=2194#comment-26 As I landed at JFK from Singapore to attend Bill’s funeral, I could not put away from my mind’s eye Bill’s face. We attended Fairfield together, were brothers in PKT at Fairfield, and we drove down to the College of New Rochelle often so Bill could visit Janet and we could meet Janet’s friends. We visited each other’s homes and ate dinners together. We remained brothers and great friends. I often stopped by Fairfield and visited Bill in his office. I always wondered why his office was located just under a roof with low ceilings and dormered windows. It was with his passing that I understood Bill’s real place at Fairfield. It wasn’t his office, it was the campus. He never built an office for himself. He built for everyone else. When I stood as Bill’s casket was brought into the santuary followed by Janet and his family and friends, I looked outside the chapel and realized that Bill is there, out there. All of what I saw inside the chapel and out was Bill’s work. I cried for the first time that long week. Bill is no longer to be found only in my mind’s eye, rather, he is there in the buildings and fields of Fairfield University.

Comment on Remembering Bill Lucas ’69 by Hank Gioiella class of 1970 http://blog.fairfield.edu/web_features/2010/11/12/remembering-bill-lucas-69/comment-page-1/#comment-25 Mon, 22 Nov 2010 02:43:39 +0000 http://blog.fairfield.edu/web_features/?p=2194#comment-25 I knew Bill Lucas as a friend, classmate and fraternity brother for 42 years. In all that time he was always a caring, intelligent and understanding individual. He never spoke about how well he was doing at Fairfield University but rather how well Fairfield was doing for him. Whether in a wheelchair, using a cane or just not able to move because of his physical problems, you never heard him complain or speak badly about any person or situation. Bill just did what he had to do, efficiently and constructively. Whenever I called him over the years to see him in his office or to grab a quick lunch, he said I’m busy but sure why not. Upon careful thought, rather than feel sorry and dwell on the fact that he is no longer physically with us, I stand and applaud his honesty, compassion and commitment to all those that he touched near or far! Knowing Bill now that he has no earthy limitations, I am positive that he is smiling, running and helping make Heaven an even better place because of his presence.

He was outstanding at his job but even more outstanding as a human being. He will be greatly missed not only by the University community but all of us who worked with him on behalf of Fairfield. Jackie and my prayers are with him and his family. Bill Egan

While he dedicated a life of service to the university, he will also be remembered as a devoted husband, father, and friend. Bill was a shining example of kindness, decency, hard work, perseverance through personal adversity, humility, and also possessed a terrific sense of humor. He will never be forgotten and will be greatly missed by all of us who had the pleasure of knowing him.
Gail and Dennis Kane
