Mark Lucas passed away recently after a short illness. Mark has been the lead Electrical and Instrument technician for Vallejo Sanitation and Flood Control District since 2010 and worked for the City of Escondido and Del Mar Fairgrounds prior to working for the District. Mark was very active with the Redwood Empire Section as the Chairperson of the O&M committee and helping with other Section events. He was also very active at the District having been on the Safety and Awards banquet committees and also volunteering as a guide for school tours throughout the year. Mark leaves behind his girlfriend Roxanne Frisby, 3 children Shana, Andrew and Anthony, his mother Laura and step-father Dave and 4 brothers and sisters, Travis, Melissa, Sabrina and Andrea. Mark enjoyed fly fishing, camping, cooking and was a pretty good bocce player. Mark’s passing was very sudden and has left a huge void at the District where many considered Mark a great friend. The family has suggested that people should donate blood to their local American Red Cross. A memorial service will happen sometime in March in Southern California. The District will also have a memorial banquet on 2/23 at 12pm to celebrate Mark.
