Robert Lawrence Lucero graduated from high school in 1986, then spent four years in the Army. He joined the Wyoming National Guard afterward.
Robert loved his family, country, and the great outdoors. He would go fly fishing on the Platte River almost every day and was known to take 10-day treks by himself deep into the Wyoming outback to bow hunt for elk. He truly was an outdoor and survival expert. He managed a perfect balance in his life between a wife, a career, the outdoors and his military obligation.
Robert also expressed his pride in what he was doing in Iraq in letters he sent a 10th grader who had become a pen pal through an ROTC program. He also offered his advice about military service. “It doesn’t always work out the way you hope it will, but it is all important, even when it doesn’t seem like it all the time,” he wrote in his last letter to Megan Rossi back home in Casper, Wyoming.
He was proud to go over there (to Iraq). He was proud to be doing what he was doing
Survivors include his wife, Sherry; mother and two sisters.
