Ronald "Kelly" Lucas

July 8, 1968 - July 11, 2015

Ronald “Kelly” Lucas, 47, passed away on the morning of Saturday July 11, 2015.  He was born July 8, 1968 in West Virginia but spent most of his life in Texas and Virginia.  He was a 2nd Class Shipfitter at Colonnas Ship Repair.

Kelly had a personality that was magnetic to others.  He was a notorious jokester, lover of golf and big fan of the Dallas Cowboys and the Houston Astros.  The ocean was a place that he enjoyed going whether it be for some fun in the sun, or some much needed relaxation.  His son Devon was the absolute love of his life.  Kelly was a good natured person that loved to have fun and make people laugh.

Left to cherish Kelly’s memory are his son Devon Lucas; parents Cheryl and Dick Blankenship; brother, Richard Zachary Blankenship; very special friend, Lettie Maykowski and a legion of extended family and dear friends.

A Celebration of Life will be held for Kelly at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 5792 Greenwich Rd. Virginia Beach, VA 23456 on Thursday July 16, 2015 at 2:00 pm.  In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the American Heart Association.  The memory of Kelly will live on in our hearts forever.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
