Ezekiel K. "Bud" Lucas, 23, of Tremont passed away early Saturday morning, May 20, 2023, in Donaldson.
Bud was born in Pottsville, May 28, 1999, a son of Sheila Jo Leininger, Tremont.
Bud's strong work ethic was second to none. He was currently employed as a heavy equipment operator for Frank Krammes Excavating. He also had been a surface and deep coal miner in the past. He will be remembered as a jack-of-all-trades.
He was always the life of the party and could often be found socializing at the various organizations he belonged to. He was a member of the Pine Grove Fish & Game, Pine Grove Ten Pin, Pine Grove VFW, Valley View Gun Club, Valley View VFW, Little Run Sportsman Club, and the Newtown Fire Company.
Bud was the definition of an all-around country boy. Nothing made him happier than hanging with his friends and family. Whether it be sitting out by a fire, hunting, having a cold drink, or riding ATVs, Bud was type of guy you could not help but be friends with.
His family was extremely important to him. He had an inseparable bond with his mom and sister. Bud will be deeply missed by all those lucky enough to call him a friend.
Surviving are his mother and best friend, Shelia Jo Leininger; his sister, Shyla Lucas, Tremont; half-brother, Garrett Hentz (Jena), Good Spring; grandparents, Zeke Leininger, Tremont, Sheila Leininger, Williamstown, Rick Lucas, Joliett, Randy Madenford, Pine Grove; nephew Marley Hentz; Bud is also survived by Rick Kocher, who was a big part of his life; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.
Funeral Services will be held Friday, May 26, 2023 at 11:00 AM from the Chapel of the Dimon Funeral Home. Visitation will be from 9-11 at the chapel.
