Former Wayne County Sheriff William Lucas died at the age of 94, according to his family.

William Lucas, Jr. said William Lucas died peacefully Monday (May 30) morning with family by his side after being ill for the last two weeks. He said Lucas died of natural causes.

William Lucas was the first Wayne County Executive. He also worked as a special agent in the FBI, a legal assistant in the Department of Justice and was a patrol officer and undercover vice squad officer in the New York Police Department.

“What a great loss to our community. When I came into the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office in 1983, he was my Sheriff. I did not have a lot of contact with him, but I heard nothing but good things back then and since. I’ve known his family for years and they’re a loving, tight-knit family. All of us at the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office are sending our love and support to them during this difficult time, and we will continue to serve them in any way they need.”
