Dr. David Lucks, 56, was reportedly life-flighted from Moab to a Grand Junction hospital for additional medical care. But Lucks passed away on Oct. 16 after he was removed from life support, according to a family friend who contacted The Times-Independent last week.
According to an obituary in The Denver Post, Lucks was a partner at Western Infectious Disease Consultants in Wheat Ridge, Colo. Before he moved to Colorado in 2006, he served as an infectious disease specialist in the Chicago area.
“In his 32 years as a physician, David was revered by his fellow doctors, nurses and patients for his tireless devotion to his patients and his practice,” the obituary says.
Lucks is survived by numerous family members, including his wife and three children.
The Grand County Sheriff’s Office did not respond to The Times-Independent’s requests for additional information about the accident.
