The International Institute of New England joins the many friends, family, and colleagues mourning the loss of Thomas Lucey earlier this month. Thomas, who served on the IINE Board of Directors in the late 1990s and early 2000s, passed away peacefully on August 8, 2022, at the age of 78.  

Born and raised in Jamaica Plain, MA, Tom attended Boston Latin School and was the proud graduate of the United States Coast Guard Academy, class of 1965. He served our country with great pride and was a Vietnam veteran.  

Tom served on many boards over the years, including Stonehill College, Newton Country Day School of the Sacred Heart, the Coast Guard Academy, Cape Cod Museum of Art, and the MSPCC, in addition to the International Institute of New England. 

IINE is grateful for Tom’s many contributions to the immigrant and refugee community, and he will be sorely missed. 

Notes of comfort may be made to his family at
