Lucas, Richard (1833–1883)

We regret to record the death of Mr. Richard Lucas, of Pomborneit, which took place at his father's residence in Camperdown on Sunday evening. Deceased, who was fifty years of age at the time of his death, was an old resident of the district, and was widely and favourably known. He was unwell only for a short time, and to all appearance looked a man who had a long lease of life. Death was the result of a complication of disorders. He was interred yesterday afternoon in the Camperdown cemetery, a long line of mourners testifying to the respect in which deceased was held.
