The Lucas Family has a rich history as unique as the families they’ve served for over a century.
In the 1860’s, Lucas Funeral Homes got its start in Funeral Service when Wingate H. Lucas first sold pine boxes/coffins from his wagon and homestead. Later this endeavor culminated with three of his sons (Wink, Dave, and Joe) opening a general store in Grapevine, Texas. The general store sold groceries, dry goods, farm implements and coffins.
In 1910, both Wink and Dave died - and, J.T. Lucas, Sr. (Joe) acquired the Lucas Funeral Business, along with the Grocery, Furniture, and Implements. J.T. Lucas, Sr., better known as “Uncle Joe” had five sons, of which four became Morticians: Robert Lee (Bob) was the first to receive his license; Wingate Clemons (Mann) was the second son; and then J.T., Jr. and L.B. (Zippy) Lucas. Over the years Lucas Funeral Home expanded into other communities, Bob Lucas established the Ft. Worth funeral home in 1929, Zippy Lucas established the first funeral home in the City of Hurst in 1962 and J.T. Lucas continued to operate the funeral home in Grapevine.
As the older Lucas generations retired or passed away the family business was ultimately purchased by James (Jim) N. Lucas Sr., grandson of Bob Lucas. Jim along with his mother, Mildred Nimmo Lucas, sons Bobby and Jimmy, cousin Mark (Zippy's grandson) and Helen Jean (J.T. Jr's daughter) still operate the business. As North Texas has grown, so have the Lucas Family of Funeral Homes and Cremation Services. In addition to chapels in Grapevine, Fort Worth and Hurst, The Lucas Family operates Chapels in Keller, Burleson,and Mansfield (Blessing Funeral Home). In Ft. Worth the Lucas and Williams families joined together to create an African American and Caucasian Funeral Home. The Lucas family is also proud to operate Calvario Casa Funeraria on the North Side and Robertson Mueller Harper on 8th Ave next to Baylor All Saints Hospital.
