$100 MIL CASH EXTRAVAGANZ
Retirement is next up for million-dollar winner from New Palestine
New Palestine’s Ronald Lucas has a lot to think about in the days ahead, but one thing that won’t cross his mind is heading off to work.
After winning $1 million on a Hoosier Lottery scratch-off ticket, the 54-year old union carpenter is calling it quits.
“I’ve got a pension coming when I’m 60. This money will be more than enough to get me to that point,” said Ronald. “I’m done. This is retirement for me.”
The father of two and grandfather of two is still coming to grips with the reality of his big win, but was immediately grateful and filled with emotion.
“The first thing that went through my mind was my wife, Guila,” said Ronald. “I lost her to pneumonia about a year ago after 30 years together. I thanked her. I know she was looking out for me.”
