Obituary for Jabe Lloyd Lucas Jr.

Jabe Lloyd  Lucas Jr.
Mr. Jabe Lloyd Lucas Jr., resident of Wynne, Arkansas departed this life on Sunday, October 7, 2018, at NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital in Jonesboro, Arkansas at the age of 57. He entered this life in Wynne, Arkansas on Monday, April 10, 1961, along with his twin sister, Lynn, to Mr. Jabe Lloyd Lucas, Sr. and Mrs. Betty (Tackett) George.

Lloyd was a 1979 graduate of Forrest City High School, and on August 8, 1980, he married the love of his life, Laura Blankenship. Together they raised two daughters, Victoria and Cassidy, whom he jokingly referred to as number one and number two, depending on who he thought was better that particular week. In January 1990, Lloyd began working for Woodruff Electric Cooperative Corporation, and dedicated 28 years of service before his passing.

Mr. Lucas was an avid outdoorsman and sportsman. He loved to hunt and fish, but got the most enjoyment out of taking others fishing. He was notorious for catching a large mess of crappie, but rather than keep them for himself, would give them to someone in need of a meal. Mr. Lucas was notably selfless; he would give anything he could to someone in need. He would search out old and broken lawn mowers, and repair them before giving them away. Lloyd loved to tinker and fix anything broken, and even some things that weren’t broken. Recently, his Sunday afternoon hobby was playing corn hole. He enjoyed mowing his yard, tending to his garden, following ALL things Razorback, and Red Wolf football and band.

Mr. Lucas was a devoted husband, father, brother, son, and friend. He loved to serve his family and his community, and was of the Christian faith. Lloyd will forever be remembered for his kind and caring heart and his favorite phrase: “The main thing is don’t panic.” Lloyd was an inspiration to all who knew him, and will be missed by many.

Lloyd was preceded in death by his parents; and a brother, Tony Lucas.

He is survived by his loving wife of 38 years, Laura Lucas of the home; two daughters, Victoria Elizabeth Cansler and husband, David, of McCrory; and Cassidy Ashton Lucas of Jonesboro; a brother, David Lucas and wife, Robin, of Seymour, Tennessee; four sisters, Melinda Downey and husband, Tony, of Forrest City; Rebecca Chittom and husband, Mark, of Franklin, Tennessee; Lisa Jumper and husband, Scotty, of Forrest City; and Lynn Love and husband, Rockey, of Forrest City; his father-in-law, Donald Blankenship of Forrest City; two sisters-in-law, Kelly Lewis and husband, Albert, of Forrest City; and Taelor Blankenship of Jonesboro; a brother-in-law, Baker Blankenship of Forrest City; and a host of other relatives and friends.

Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 11, 2018, in the Thompson-Wilson Funeral Home chapel in Wynne with Pastor Galen Mason officiating. Interment will follow in Halk Cemetery near Wynne.

Friends may visit at the funeral home from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 10, 2018.

Those honored to serve as pallbearers are Barry Duncan, Justin Miller, Don Graves, Mike Flowers, Teddy Little, and Justin Loveday. Honorary pallbearers are Harold “Skibo” Flowers, Johnny Spain, and Lloyd’s Woodruff Electric family.
