Lucky is also survived by brother Larry and wife Betty Chinn, John Dale and wife Janet Chinn, sister Sue Kothe and husband Ron, Sandra Wells, Pam Johnson and husband Rick. Sister-in-law Ginger Chinn and a host of treasured nieces and nephews that Lucky loved so much.
Lucky spent his childhood in Bowering, Oklahoma, graduating in 1968 from high school.
He attended Northeastern State University where he met the love of his life, Janice “Angel Face” Douglas. They were married in 1970. After graduating from Northeastern State in 1972, Lucky managed several retail stores before getting into the chemical business as a chemist, which he loved. He worked for C.E. Natco, Frontier Chemical and Green Country Chemical before becoming part owner of Advanced Chemical Company. He retired from Hawkins Chemicals in 2017.
Lucky loved the outdoors. He loved to hunt but, the love of his life, besides Jan, was fishing. Lucky spent many a-day with son Kevin fishing, solving world problems, and enjoying life. Some of Jan’s most fond memories were going to the White River fishing with Lucky. Jan and Lucky enjoyed their many friends worshipping the Lord at their Church home, First Baptist Church, Mounds, Oklahoma.
One of the many blessings in Lucky’s life was his many neighbors on Simmental Lane in Sapulpa. He thought of them more like family.
