Nathan John Lucabaugh, 77, was welcomed into heaven on Saturday, January 22nd, 2022. Born December 22, 1944, Nathan was the first son of Stuart and Mary Lucabaugh of Hanover, and the beloved husband of Susan (Miller) Lucabaugh, to whom he was married for almost 52 years.
Nathan attended Arise Evangelical Free Church in Hanover, and served as a popular middle school English teacher for 38 years in the Conewago Valley School District, where he regaled thousands of students with his signature wit and wisdom. An accomplished fly fisherman and fly tyer, Nathan’s passion for chasing steelhead trout in the New York tributaries was a treasured endeavor. Ever a student and lifelong learner, Nathan had a plethora of interests he pursued with zeal, among them gardening, reading, writing, teaching Sunday school, and spending quality time with his family and friends.
In addition to his wife Susan, Nathan is survived by his son Abram and his wife Megan of Montgomeryville PA, his daughter Alison and her husband Brett of Hanover PA, six grandchildren – Ella, Nolan, Chase, Eilish, Grant, and Judah, his brother, Nevin Lucabaugh, his sister, Christine (Lucabaugh) Miller, and brother-in-law Glenn Miller. Nathan was predeceased in life by his brother Noah Lucabaugh and his sister Elaine (Lucabaugh) Sellers.
