Luce joined the Pitman, N.J., Lions Club in 1952, the Lantana Lions Club in South Florida in 1978 and the Ocoee Lions Club in 2004. He has held several leadership positions, including deputy district governor, zone chair and club president, secretary and treasurer.
Luce also has been guest editor of the Florida Lions Magazine, as well as a regular at Ocoee Lions Club meetings, fundraisers and events, including turkey shoots and Christmas parades. Luce has had a long career in law enforcement, and he will be married to his wife, Jean, for 48 years in September.
He now attends meetings with one of the Club’s newest members, his daughter, Dianne Ketts.
