Lucien attended school at Windsor Lake school district. He went to work at an early age for Henry Casavant. He then tried his hand in the car dealership in Prince Albert, and this was not his cup of tea. He moved back home and started to farm with his dad and brother Henry. Lucien married Jeanette Koolick in October of 1956 and resided at the home quarter, where she and Glen still live. Along with farming, he worked for the RM of Blaine Lake, and started a construction company.
Lucien loved to fish, hunt, and was involved in hockey for many years; as a coach and a parent. His favorite team was the Montreal Canadiens. In the household this caused many discussions. He was a successful farmer and took pride in his family. He enjoyed watching his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren grow.
