Dixon Rinehart McGlohon
Rinehart McGlohon, known to friends and family as Lukas, a
commercial fisherman in Gloucester, passed away suddenly on Aug
14th. Lukas was born in Nashville, TN, in 1991, the son of Blu
Smith and Joseph McGlohon. He was raised in Alabama and after
graduating high school he attended Calhoun Community College. He
then moved to Gloucester, MA, to pursue a career in the fishing
industry. Lukas had been working on tuna boats, lobster boats,
and most recently for a bluefin tuna broker, retrieving tuna
from the boat captains and delivering them to the purchaser. He
could be seen on the popular show, “Wicked Tuna” when the
captains landed their fish and were looking for the value of
Lukas always loved the outdoors and enjoyed
spending time fishing, both
commercially and recreationally. He also had just received his
Merchant Mariner Credentials to become a licensed boat captain.
He had a great love of computers, and would build his own from
components. He loved music and was skilled at playing guitar.
Most of all, he was a people person, easily making friends,
willing to help others, and in turn people were always there to
help him. He was also a faithful and proud member of St. Mary's
Episcopal Church in Rockport.
