Obituary

Obituary for Walter J. Lucier

GRAFTON/RUTLAND: Walter J. Lucier, passed away peacefully January 6, 2020 at Rose Monahan Hospice Home with his adoring family surrounding him. He leaves his wife of 55 years, Charlotte (Heffernan) Lucier, his children Jacqui Esteves and her husband Bob, Tom Lucier and his wife Janet, Liz Gava and her husband Craig and Patrick Lucier, his grandchildren Krysta and Alexa Esteves and Parker Lucier, his siblings Daniel Lucier and his wife Connie, Jim Lucier and his wife Barbara, Sue Evans and her husband John and Judy Hannum and his sister-in-law Dolly Lucier along with many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his siblings Celeste Gilchrist, Leonard Woodward, Ken Lucier and Al Lucier. Walt was born March 20, 1937 at his family home in Grafton, son of the late Mary E. (Sampson) and Alexis P. Lucier. He lived in town for most of his life before recently moving to Rutland and eventually Holden. Walter graduated from Saint John’s High School in Worcester. He served proudly in the US Army Reserves for 6 years. Walt’s career was in the plastics industry where he was a Tooling Engineer up until his retirement at age 70, having spent most of those years at Tupco and Polytop, Co. Away from work, if you needed anything fixed Walt was always there with tools in hand, “Mr Fix-It” as he became known to family and friends. He loved a round of golf with friends at Pakachoag Country Club in Auburn or Hillcrest Country Club in Leicester. Walt was active in his citizenry, serving as Grand Knight on the Benedict Council and was a founding member of St. Patrick’s Church Council in Rutland where he was a devoted parishioner. He also served on the Finance Committee in Grafton. Most of all, he treasured the time he had with his family. Please honor Walt in lieu of traditional remembrances with donations to Dana Farber Cancer Institute at www.Dana-Farber.org or to Worcester VNA Hospice and Palliative Care 120 Thomas St. Worcester, MA 01608. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated for Walt Wednesday January 15th, 2020 at 11:00am at St. Patrick’s Church 258 Main St. Rutland, MA 01543. There are no calling hours and burial will be private. A Book of Memories to share a favorite story or message of sympathy with his family is available online at:

I worked with Walter many years and in all that time I never heard him curse, yell at any of the workers, though there were hundreds of times he would have been justified, and I never saw him get upset. He was never too busy to answer a question or explain an operation in the shop
Those are a few of the reasons he was such a pleasure to work for and be around.
And he always, always had a smile.
He will be greatly missed. I hope at least a few of his traits have rubbed off on me and others that were fortunate enough to know him.

Raise a glass! To Walter.

To the Lucier family I would like to pass on our condolences. The Richard family always appreciated the neighbors and the friendships that life has blessed us with. I remember Walter and Charolette's home being inviting to all kinds in the neighborhood to swim in the pools or play in the yard. I remember when a bat flew into our house and I all of about 10 years old ran across the street to get Walter to help get the bat out as our parents were out to dinner for the evening. He helped out and got the bat out the back door. Growing up back then in South Grafton with great neighbors are the memories I will have forever. Rest In Peace Mr. Lucier
Robert.

Charlotte, Jacqui, Tom, Liz, and Patrick - You are all in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult and sad time. I have known Walt as a friend of the family, as a personal friend, as a mentor, and as a Christian role model and example of a good husband and father, We have looked to Walt and Charlotte for guidance, counsel and friendship and you were always there. I can only hope to continue to try to walk in the path you have set Walt.
The words of the prophet Isaiah apply to Walt - "The Lord says, "here is my servant ...the one I have chosen, with whom I am well pleased. I have filled him with my spirit"
That is the Walt Lucier I knew and loved.
We are glad to continue our friendship with all of you in the coming weeks, months and years. Our sympathy and condolences are with you. You are in our hearts and prayers.
Love,
Bill and Donna Goulet
