This update provided by his nephew, Doug Miller on Dec.2, 2014
He was in the Army for 4 years, 1960 to 1964 and received an Honorable Discharge with the rank of E-4(I think). He served as a Chaplin’s Assistant for those 4 years.
Doug also indicated that he thought that Lacy served at Nicholls State from 1966 until he retired in 1997. The initial hiring date has been confirmed by Nicholls State.

Some comments by Ed Dugas on Dec. 4, 2014.
The initial hiring date has been confirmed by Nicholls State. He was active in professional organizations, especially those in Reading and Teacher Education.
While in high school, he was an outstanding trumpet player, guard on the basketball team (relentless on defense), second baseman on the softball team and was outstanding in Vocational Agriculture in the areas of parliamentary procedure and public speaking. One of my friends reminded me of when Lacy would solo playing the Carnival of Venice. He could blow that trumpet. He was my sister’s idol, the model of how things should be done. On top of all his other activities, he probably had the highest academic average at EHS and considered by all as the most intelligent student.
