Paul Theodore Lukas

Paul T. Lukas, husband, father, grandpa, and friend, passed away on March 8, 2014. He was 67.

Born in Cleveland, Ohio on October 14, 1946, he was the middle child of 3. He married his high school sweetheart Marie on December 31, 1966; and, after serving his country in the Navy during the Vietnam War, was honorably discharged from active duty in December 1973. Paul & Marie have called Kent, WA their home for the last 40 years. Paul retired in October 2012 and was able to spend more time enjoying his passion for fishing, hunting, and spending time outdoors.

He is preceded in death by his parents Peter and Etta Lukas; and his grandson Jeffrey. He is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Marie; his two sons, Paul and Chris; daughter-in-laws, Karey and Tisha; his five very special grandchildren, Piper, Donovan, Alyssa, Drew, and Blake; his sister Barbara and brother-in-law Bob; and his younger brother Robert.

We love you and will miss you dearly.
