Richard Anthony Lucio, 80, of Solvay, passed away Saturday. A lifetime resident of the Syracuse area, he was a 1959 graduate of Solvay High School and attended Bakersfield College. He worked for Allied Chemical for over 20 years. He then opened his own restaurant, Lucio’s Seafood, with his wife, Rose Ann. Rich was a former member of Western Hills Church of Christ and Liverpool Christian Church where he served as an elder in both churches. He was a former avid bowler, having won Bowling for Dollars and was crowned “King of the Hill.” Rich enjoyed golfing, cooking, interior and exterior painting with his brother-in-law, Bob and was an avid NY Yankees fan. Above all, he loved spending time with his family, especially when they were together at their family camp in Sylvan Beach.
