Aug. 14, 1950 - Jan. 5, 2020
Robert Douglas “Bob” Lucash, 69, of San Antonio, and formerly of Freeburg, Illinois, passed away on Sunday, Jan. 5, 2020, at his residence. A memorial service will be held Saturday, Jan. 18, 2020 ,at 11 a.m. at Holt & Holt Funeral Home in Boerne.
Bob was born Aug. 14, 1950, in Belleville, Illinois, a son of the late Walter J. and Edna Mae (Baechle) Lucash. He was a graduate of Althoff Catholic High School in Belleville and St. Edward University in Austin where he played college basketball on a scholarship and later worked as a recruiter for the university. Further, he earned his Master’s in Education with School Counseling degree from Southwest Texas State (Texas State University). He retired after 35 years from the Boerne Independent School District where he taught business classes and later served as a school counselor.
Bob never met a stranger and always had a kind word for everyone. He enjoyed attending his grandchildren’s sporting and school events as well as attending San Antonio Spurs basketball games with them. He continued to remain a loyal St. Louis Cardinal fan while living in Texas.
Throughout his adult life he battled a debilitating disease with humility and grace, never complaining and always living each day to its fullest. He espoused the Concept Therapy philosophical principles of mind, body and spirit as an understanding to living a whole life. He held numerous offices in the organization and he was an exemplary model of its teachings.
Bob is survived by his loving daughter Robin and son-in-law Doug Yeamans of Austin and his two loving grandchildren Clayton and Claire, who were the sparkle in his eyes and who always brought a smile on his face. Surviving also are his sisters Charlotte (Ken) Vielweber of Freeburg, Illinois, and Kathy Klopman of San Antonio; and his brother and sports buddy Steve (Karen) Lucash of Ballwin, Missouri; as well as uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends.
