The City of Passaic today is mourning the loss of Robert J. Lucianin, son of retired city policeman and retired business administrator Kenneth Lucianin and his wife Joanne.

Mr. Lucianin was the eldest of ten Lucianin children, and member of a big extended Passaic family with deep ties in the Democratic Party, whose house over the years regularly served as an events center for U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-9) and the Kennedys.

A resident of Hamburg, N.J., Mr. Lucianin was the brother of former City Councilman Ken Lucianin.

Funeral Services are 9:15 a.m. Thursday from Bizub-Quinlan Funeral Home, 1313 Van Houten Ave., Clifton and 10 a.m. from St. Clare R.C. Church, 31 Allwood Road, Clifton.
