Jeffrey Alan Lucas, 33, of Corbett, Oregon was killed Tuesday when the Chinook helicopter he was flying in crashed. Lucas’ brother recalls that Lucas had an early inclination about what he wanted to spend his life doing. “He wrote a paper in about fourth grade, and it was all about the special forces.” Lucas and his wife, Rhonda, were married for 12 years, and they have a 4-year-old son, Seth. He was an avid golfer and had hoped some day to go pro. Jeff Lucas left these instructions in case he died: Cremate my body. Bury me at Arlington. No “$%$%” bagpipes at my funeral. The rest, he wrote, “my wife knows”.
