“Lucioes lived in both Redwood Valley and San Francisco for many of the years I was in the Temple. Everyone knew him as one of the helpful members you could always call for help. Whether you needed a ride, or a repair, or an arm to help you up the stairs, he was always glad to oblige, and was liked and trusted by all. This picture of Lucioes shows him just as I remember him: always jovial and at your service if you needed help. Although to me he looks a lot like Princeola Bryant (born 10/12), 13 years older and also born in Arkansas, they apparently were not related. In Jonestown, Lucioes partnered with Lois Ponts. He taught political enlightenment and worked on the banana crew. His one mention in Edith Roller's journals is of being needed in the slaughterhouse (so he had another skill, not mentioned), but could not be spared from the banana crew. Brother Lucioes, such a good worker they needed two of you! You gave it your best shot, and may you always be remembered for your cheerful and tireless service to fellow members, young and old. Never to be forgotten. Kimberly (who was a child of 12 when she last saw Lucioes) added: "Mr Lucioes was more than helpful he was the salt of Earth kinda man who gave u his heart, soul and anything else to you, glad he found someone and is heaven enjoying a beautiful life" (many heart & halo emojis) ” - Kathryn Barbour
