We're very sad to share the news that Wayne Lucas took his last ride across the Great Divide on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at the age of 69.

Wayne is lovingly remembered by his wife of 45 years, Judy; his children, Marla (Maury) and their children, Ashton, Amanda and Reegan; Brett (Caro) and children, Chance, Zack and Felicity; Flint (Elise) and their children, Sutton and and Maybry; and Rustin (Aaron) and their children, Conner, Colson, and a coming addition due in the fall.

Wayne valued his family above all else and his family’s passions became his passions. This showed in the leadership roles that he took in 4-H horse and beef clubs, and director of high school rodeo. He also played key roles in both the Appaloosa and Percheron Horse Clubs. Cherishing his neighbors and friends, he was a strong believer in the power of working together. Wayne enjoyed branding season where he could gather ‘em, heel ‘em, and was an expert with the irons. He was a man who saw the good in people and made everyone feel special... valuable qualities as he and Judy shared their home and lives with people from across the world through Lucasia Ranch Vacations for over 20 years. Wayne could frequently be found heading up a group of riders or teaching guests roping basics down by the barn. Team roping was a particular passion of Wayne’s and he participated in the sport up until his passing.

Lucasia Ranch Vacations will carry on this year - as planned - with Wayne and Judy's oldest son, Brett and his fiance, Caro - along with Judy and the rest of the crew ready to welcome returning and new guests.

Rest in Peace Wayne.
