Friends and family convened Thursday to memorialize the work of a man instrumental to the opening of Logan Acres Care Center.
Logan Acres honored its visionary the late Dave Lucid with a memory plaque recognizing his efforts in establishing the assisted living long-term care facility, which was constructed in 2006.
Lucid, who passed away in March 2017, was instrumental in its creation.
Cheryl Paxton of Progressive Healthcare Systems worked with Lucid for nearly 15 years.
“I saw another side of him,” she said. “I considered him a close friend and an exquisite mentor. Healthcare was always very special to Dave.”
Paxton said she thought it was “fabulous” that the Logan County Commissioners were honoring Lucid in the way they were.
Commissioner John Bayliss said Lucid was most certainly a, “servant leader.”
“He was an empathetic, compassionate person who cared about residents, staff and coworkers,” the commissioner said.
In addition to the plaque, a $1,000 annual scholarship has been established in Lucid’s name.
Sharon Lucid, Dave Lucid’s wife, said she felt honored by the recognition of her late husband.
“It’s all so precious to me,” she said. “I am truly blessed to be a part of this whole community.”
Natalie Gilmore, Lucid’s daughter, agreed.
“Logan Acres has a special place in our family’s heart.”
