TOLEDO, OH – It is with much regret that the Lucas Products family informs the tanning industry of the passing of company founder, Donald Applegate.
Known to many as the “grandfather” of the tanning industry, Donald started Lucas Products in 1957. Throughout the years, he developed the modern-day tanning goggle, SUPER SUNNIES, as well as the popular LUCASOL disinfectant and a myriad of other products.
Commented Lucas Products Owner, Robert Urfer, “Donald was a great man not only in business, but also as a decorated World War II veteran. He will truly be missed by many.”
Since 1997, IST Magazine (formerly known as Island Sun Times) has been committed to the success of salon professionals, while promoting the growth of the tanning industry as a whole.
