Obituary for Frank A. Lucente Jr.

Frank Anthony Lucente, Jr. passed away peacefully at his home in Edgewater surrounded by family and close friends on Monday, October 8, 2018. He was 76 years old.

Frank was born in New York to Frank and Maria (Aragona) Lucente, Italian immigrants to America
via Ellis Island. He attended Sewanhaka High School and CW Post College, both on Long Island. He moved to Maryland in the early 1960's to work with his family's real estate development company.

The youngest of five children, Frank was a warm and friendly person with creative vision, driving ambition and unstoppable optimism. He succeeded in developing the first office buildings in Southern Prince George' s County, constructing the Riverview, Law and Lucente Buildings in Oxon Hill, which became home to the US District Court for Maryland as well as Suburban Bank and Dante's Restaurant. He also built the first hotel in the area, originally named the Ramada Hotel Oxon Hill. Frank also assembled all the parcels of land behind his family's home on the Potomac River in Oxon Hill, making way for his dream of a waterfront vibrant with eateries, shops, lodging and piers where citizens could access and enjoy the riverfront area. His dream became a reality with the groundbreaking in 1999 for National Harbor.

Frank treasured his role as father and grandfather. He loved the New York Yankees, the Washington Redskins, and playing craps at area casinos. He was also an avid movie-goer and a fan of good food, especially of the Italian variety.

Frank will be deeply missed and forever loved in the hearts of his children, grandchildren, a large extended family and a lifetime of friends.

In addition to his parents, Frank was preceded in death by his wife of 40 years, Diamond Lee Lucente; a son, Anthony Vernon; and three siblings, John Lucente, Frances Fernandes, and Esther Vricella.

He is survived by four children, Shawn Vernon of Delray Beach, FL, Carla Teresa Lucente, Anna Lucente-Hoffmann, and Gina Lucente Watson, all of Edgewater, MD; a sister, Angela Ferguson of Moriches, NY; seven grandchildren, Ford Hoffmann, Ross Vernon, Frank Lucente Watson, Madison Lucente Newman, Erica Lucente Fierstein, Summer Hoffmann, and Brooke Lucente Watson; and two great-children, Sandler Wollman and Jaslene Vernon.

Friends are invited to celebrate Frank's life with his family on Thursday, October 11 from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. at the Kalas Funeral Home, 2973 Solomons Island Road, Edgewater, MD. Mass of Christian Burial will be offered on Friday, October 12 at 11 a.m. at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, 515 Loch Haven Road, Edgewater. Interment will follow at Lakemont Memorial Gardens in Davidsonville, MD.
