Lucien Richard Musso
Aug. 23, 1948 – Nov. 22, 2020
Lucien Richard Musso passed away at his home on November 22, 2020. Lucien is remembered as a loving and generous father, a great listener who was supportive of the needs of his family.
Lucien was born on August 23, 1948 and raised in Gilroy, CA by Lucien and Mary Musso with his sisters. He lived a full and loving childhood. Lucien married and had four children. A respected criminal defense attorney, Lucien worked hard to help support his family. Out of his love for classic vehicles and street rods, he invented the Excelsior Valve Cover, a piece of machinery that was deemed “a piece of jewelry for your car”. He was always thinking of new and better ways of doing things.
Lucien was an avid fisherman, feeling most relaxed and peaceful when he was boating and fishing, or when hanging out with his favorite cat “Rusty”. His family remembers him fondly for his trips to the lake, his fascination with mechanics, and his ingenious inventions of silly games to entertain the children, like “cans in space” on the 4th of July.
Lucien was a devout Catholic, attending Mass every Sunday.
Lucien is survived by his four children: Caroline (James) Bray of Modesto, CA, Melissa Musso of Sparks, NV, Monica (James) Perdomo of Santa Nella, and Lucien C. (Stephanie) Musso of Hughson; and 13 grandchildren. He is also survived by his sisters Mary McCandless of Turlock and Maureen Nolte of Cromberg.
