as Sam Lucas
Attorney Sam Lucas arrived in town with wife Lahoma from nearby Bay City, Illinois... ostensibly to start a happy new life. He quickly established a successful law practice. However, if Sam had known how much trouble Somerset was going to be, he probably would have kept on driving and never looked back.
In 1972, Sam became president of Delaney Brands, following the departure of Peter and Robert Delaney. Unaware that the company's new owner was part of the mob, Sam was tricked into having an affair with his secretary Chrystal Ames, then blackmailed by her employers... a powerful crime syndicate that wanted to gain control of Somerset through its industry. When Lahoma discovered her husband's affair, she left him (and town) with baby Susannah. After that, Sam had little to do in Somerset. He decided to return to Bay City, where sister Ada and niece Rachel lived. Somehow, he managed to have even less to do in Bay City than he did in Somerset.
A phone call from Lahoma, hinting at a reconciliation, prompted Sam to leave for Oklahoma in December 1974. Presumably, he found something to do there...he was never seen or heard from again.
