Calhoun City---Phillip Lynn Lucius, Jr, 48, passed away suddenly in Webster County on Tuesday, May 21, 2019. Born February 1, 1971 in Houston, MS, he is the son of Phillip Lynn Lucius, Sr. and Joyce Hamilton Lucius. Lynn was a 1990 graduate of Vardaman High School, and was a faithful and lifetime member of New Providence Baptist Church. He was also a member of the Baptist Association Disaster Relief Team. He has always been the jack of all trades, but he loved driving a truck, and took pride in being able to continue the family trucking business. Among the many hobbies he enjoyed was sawmilling, cooking, and spending time out at his camp. His friends and family will always remember his sense of humor, especially him telling long, detailed stories that were hilarious. He had a big heart, and would always help others in any way he could. On June 4, 2010, he married the former Vickey Hodges, whom he absolutely loved and adored. His free time was spent with his wife and kids, and his grandson, Blayze, which was his pride and joy. He was also very active in the CCHS Band Boosters, building props for the band or whatever else was needed for them.

Family was very important to Lynn. He always organized the family gatherings on “Lucius Hill” as he called it, and was always the main cook as well. Growing up, Lynn was always the ring leader of all the cousins. Lynn was a loving and forgiving person and he genuinely cared about the needs of others without any judgement. His family and friends are heartbroken over his untimely passing, but he has left a lifetime of memories that will be cherished forever.
