Oh NO!  I am so, so sorry to hear this sad news.  Steve is the reason I joined the Aroid society.  He was an amazing person, full of enthusiasm and warmth as well as knowledge.  I will miss him very much.

Aroid friends-

Steve Lucas, a great member of the International Aroid Society, passed away this morning.  Many members and plant enthusiasts all over the world have known Steve, as he loves to correspond with people about plants.  He had a great passion for plants and loved to share his hobby with others.  For the last several years he has been a huge advocate for the IAS and has had great visions for seeing the society grow.  He took it upon himself to personally welcome each new member and learn about their personal interests.  He will be greatly missed by many.

A note from Steve's daughters:

The funeral will be held this Sunday, January 16, in Siloam Springs, Arkansas at the Backstrom-Pyeatte Funeral Home at 2.  The address is 1401 E. Main Siloam Springs, AR 72761.  In lieu of flowers we know our dad would appreciate donations sent to the Missouri Botanical Gardens.  He loved this place and I know that he would much rather have your gifts sent there.  Please pray for our mother Janice and brother Brad at this time.  They have a long road ahead.
