We are saddened to hear that Rob Lucas, our friend and former member of our club, has passed away. Rob touched many lives at The University of Akron and he was always a top supporter of the film community in our city and our community. He was the kind of person to always lend a hand and show kindness to others. He will be missed but his legacy and his love live on.
Rob Lucas passed away peacefully last night after a long battle with cancer. He will forever exist within our hearts and in everything that is Akron Film and The Nightlight.
We are all better for having known his kindness, ambition, and thoughtfulness. His love for film, friends, and family inspired and welcomed us. To see him at an event was to feel at home.
Our dear friend, we will continue your vision, and we will lead with love by your example. @ The Nightlight
