Amesbury - Joseph Richard Lukasesky (Joe Lucas), 76, passed away peacefully after a brief illness on Monday, October 21, 2019, at High Pointe House in Haverhill, Mass. Joe is survived by his nephew, Paul Lukasesky of Lynn, Mass., and his close, life-long friends, Elaine V. Makos of Hanover, Maine, and Rolando Cespedes of Amesbury.

Joe was born in Lynn on April 19, 1943 to the late Joseph Lukasesky and Jeanette (Campbell) Sweeney. Joe spent his early adulthood living in Lynn where he began his career in the shoe business, working at several stores including Leed's Shoes. In 1976, Joe and his mother moved to Newburyport, where he eventually began working at the former Quality Shoe Store on State Street. His life-long dream came true and Joe purchased the business and was co-owner for many years until the store closed in 1989. Joe eventually moved to Amesbury and worked at Hyman's Pennysworth's at Port Plaza until his retirement. Joe will be remembered by his friends and former co-workers for his friendly personality and his kindness to the countless local families he helped over the years at the shoe stores and in the community.

Joe is predeceased by his sister; Joan (Lukasesky) Parianis; and his nephew Richard Lavasseur.

At Joe's request, a private service and burial will take place with his family and close friends. Memorial contributions may be made in Joe's name to: High Pointe House (c/o Merrimack Valley Hospice), 360 Merrimack St., Bldg. 9, Lawrence, MA 01843. Arrangements are by Paul C. Rogers Family Funeral Home.

I remember Joe from when I was a kid going into Quality’s, and then from Hymen’s! I’m sure he wouldn’t remember me as he had so many customers over the years but, he was always kind to me as a customer and if I would bump into him out and about. I hope Joe is at peace. Condolences to friends and family!
