Retired Steelworker

Christopher E. Loucas, a retired Steelworker, died after suffering a heart attack Friday at his home in Fallston. He was 84.

Mr. Loucas retired in 1964 from Bethlehem Steel, where he had worked as a shear operator in the tin mill at Sparrows Point since 1936.

Before coming to Baltimore in the 1930s, he had worked in steel mills in Weirton, W.Va.

He was active in Local 2609 of United Steelworkers of America and was the Baltimore unit's president from 1950 to 1956.

"The love of his life was his union work," said his son, Mike Loucas.

Mr. Loucas, who was known as Chris to his friends, also was active in the building of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Highlandtown.

His family said that Mr. Loucas and his parents came to the United States in 1913 from Asia Minor and settled in Weirton, where his father worked in the steel mills. He was educated in the public schools there, leaving school in 1926 to work in the steel mills to help keep a brother in college. He eventually returned to high school and completed his education.

As an avocation, Mr. Loucas was a vegetable gardener.

He was married for 59 years to the former Florence Fidelis, who died in 1992.

Services are scheduled for 11:30 a.m. today at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, 2504 Cub Hill Road, Parkville.
