90th Birthday


On Sunday, April 11, 2010, Dargan Bolton Lucas celebrated his 90th birthday with family and friends at Payne Memorial United Methodist Church in Cumberland Court House, Virginia. Dargan, who was ordained as a Baptist minister at Fincastle Baptist Church, is the son of Walter Sebastian and Bessie Pearl Bolton Lucas. Dargan graduated from Bridgewater College and the Southern Baptist Seminary in Louisville, KY. In 1946, he married Beverly Hammond of Charles Town, WV. Dargan’s first pastorate was Boyce Baptist Church. He has lived in Cumberland for 40 years. The birthday celebration was hosted by Dargan’s children: Beverly Lucas Hill, Charles D. Lucas, and Richard D. Lucas, and his grandchildren. Dargan is pictured above with Debra Alderson McClane. The two are related through Stella Lucas Alderson, who was Debra’s great-grandmother and was Dargan’s aunt. Others in attendance included Carlene Rieley Bowman, Nancy Pillis, and Leon and Carol Caldwell.
