Andrew was very loved and will be deeply missed!

It is with great regret and extreme sadness that we announce the untimely and very tragic passing of our close friend, coworker and long time employee, Andrew Aranda.

Andrew began working at Luci’s at just 16 years old. Andrew was mature and smart way beyond his years. He quickly rose at Luci’s Healthy Marketplace to be a trusted and respected supervisor within a very short period of time. At the time of his passing on August 10th, 2018 Andrew was just 22 years old. Andrew was still serving as one of our longest, most trusted and loyal employees of over 6 years. Andrew was a wonderful friend and kind soul to everyone who knew him.

Andrew knew everyone’s name and drink that walked through our doors. Andrew’s smile, warm and positive spirit was always with him. His unique laugh was extremely infectious and could be easily heard. Andrew was willing to help anyone at anytime. This was his legacy, a legacy friendship, giving, kindness and pure goodness to everyone he crossed paths with. Andrew was like a son to the owners, like a brother to his coworkers and a friend to our guests. He was friendly and gracious to everyone! We mourn the tragic loss of this incredibly loving and good person. Having Andrew in our lives over the last 6 years was a special gift. Our hearts and prayers go out to Andrew’s wonderful family at this very hard time. We will announce information as we get it. We have also setup a Go Fund Me account to help his family. Andrew will be deeply missed by so many.

We all love Andrew deeply and we will always miss him.

Our hearts are broken!

Thank You!
Jerry, Jess, Ken, Luci and the entire Luci’s family
