Until recently Lucien was a resident at Kennedy Manor and prior to that St. Germain Manor both in Woonsocket. He was very active in their social clubs and always willing to lend a hand. He loved to play bingo and virtual bowling. In May of last year, Lucien moved to Wyndemere Woods where he enjoyed the care and attention he received from the staff. Lucien was a parishioner of St. John Vianney and a member of the senior club where everyone he met enjoyed his company. Lucien had a hobby of asking you when he first met you and what your first name was so he could tell you its origin and meaning. He will be greatly missed by his family and many people he met along his journey.
