Lucas, Jr., William “Bill” Orville, born in 1931, left this earth on December 11, 2020 after a brief illness. He is survived by his daughters, Nancy Ruth Lucas-Collins, Lena Arice Lucas-Strimer and Ruby Michelle Ganoe: sisters, Betty Wiles Lucas Ikard and Mary Priestly Deverell; brother, Henry Winston Bayless; grandchildren (children of Nancy Ruth Lucas-Collins and John Benjamin Collins, Jr.) Shaun Lucas Collins and Kristen Michelle Collins and son-in-law Daniel Ernest Strimer. Bill Lucas is predeceased by his beloved wife, Dorothy Ruth Lucas; brother, Franklin Porter Bayless; sister, Evelyn Evans Lucas; father, William Orville Lucas; mother Lena Rivers Wiles (Lucas) Bayless and stepfather Henry Porter Bayless, Jr.

 

An Air Force Veteran, young Bill Lucas was keen at figuring out how to build things and how things worked. He started working for Nashville Bridge Company sorting bolts and scraping rust off steel beams, but within a few short years was promoted to a Superintendent overseeing the construction of numerous bridges, dams, and buildings still standing today throughout the Eastern United States – including the iconic Municipal Auditorium and Vanderbilt’s Memorial Gymnasium. He later continued that work as co-owner of a successful construction business. After selling his business, Bill and his wife Dorothy owned Southeastern Quilting Company until retirement.

 

A generous man, Bill Lucas taught his children and many others how to relish life. He shared his love of bass fishing and knew the area lakes like the back of his hand. Many an accomplished pool player owes their game to Bill’s tutelage.

 

An artist in spirit, Bill Lucas was skilled with a pencil, a natural born entertainer, a fine singer who often preformed locally, a comedic wit, a spellbinding storyteller, and a deft spinner of hilarious original tall tales.

 

Bill Lucas was an exceptional Nashville city-league athlete, playing into his fifties, always playing as center in basketball and always batting forth in baseball.

 

Bill Lucas was a member of Mt. Juliet Masonic Lodge #642 and received his Entered Apprentice 3/19/81, Fellowcraft 7/16/81, Master Mason 4/21/83, and Worshipful Master 1/01/95. He was instrumental in building the popular barbecue pit and much-needed handicap ramp at the Lodge.

 

A positive role model for many, William Orville Lucas, Jr. believed all endeavors pursued were worthy of ones best effort, and truly left everything – and every person – better than he found them.

 

The family is eternally grateful for Bill Lucas’ cherished friends Travis Journell and Jim Austin for everything they did with and for him.

 

Graveside services will be conducted 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, December 16, 2020 at Oak Hill Cemetery in Huntingdon, TN with Randy Dunnavant officiating. Members of the Mt. Juliet Masonic Lodge #642 will serve as pallbearers at the funeral home. At the cemetery, pallbearers will be John Collins, Jr., Shaun Collins, Travis Journell and Daniel Strimer. Honorary pallbearers will be Jim Austin and Winston Bayless.

Taylor, Dorothy.jpg

Taylor, Dorothy Ann Lanius, age 86, of Nashville, TN, died December 22, 2020, in hospice care.

Born July 3, 1934, she grew up in the Scott’s Hollow community of Hermitage, TN in Wilson County.  No stranger to work, as a young girl, Dorothy began working as a live-in nanny while also working as a waitress at Lee’s Motor Court Cafe.  Determined to create her own destiny and opportunities, she convinced her mother and grandfather at just 16 years old to allow her to move to Abilene, TX to live with her newlywed cousin and husband who moved there to work for Pioneer Airlines. Dorothy saved her tip money earned from the cafe and paid her own way to Abilene. Shortly after moving to TX, she started working at the Abilene airport restaurant and enrolled and paid her own tuition to St. Joseph’s Academy.

 

Dorothy and her classmates frequently passed the fire hall on their walks after school where she caught the eye of a young fireman, Jimmy. After graduating high school, Dorothy married Jimmy in 1952 and lived in Abilene until 1965 when they moved to Nashville.

 

Dorothy spent her working years in Nashville as a bookkeeper for James Hall Construction, and more than 20 years at Metal Plate, Inc. She also had a thriving side business as a consultant for Home Interiors & Gifts, and taught many of her grandchildren the value of work by providing them with their first paying job in her home office or garage warehouse.

When not working, Dorothy spent her time caring for others. She was a member of the Southern Baptist faith and active in the Women’s Mission Union, often organizing drives for those in need. She saved every crumb and scrap to give to her and her neighbor’s pets and squirrels. She loved baking from scratch and was known to her friends, neighbors, and co-workers for her loaf breads and cakes delivered on birthdays and holidays, happily sharing her recipes with others as one of her many legacies.

 

Dorothy was the daughter of the late, Major Grover Lanius and Maggie Belle Smith Lanius. She was also preceded in death by her husband, James Sidney Taylor, her daughter, Sherri Eddington, and one grandson.

She is survived by:

Daughters – Miriam McKinzie, Jimmetra (J.D.) Thomas and

                  Sidney (Mark) Williams

Son-in-law – Glenn Eddington

Grandchildren – J.W. (Linda) Taylor, Matthew (Keva) Phipps,

                       Danica Stephens, Cory Sutton, Cristy (Brian) Tice, and       

                       Lynnze (J.P.) Cisco

21 Great-grandchildren and 2 Great-great grandchildren
