When Lucious Newsom died in 2008, his Indianapolis vision seemed destined to die with him.
Newsom, a friend of governors and mayors, fed the hungry from the pockets of his bib overalls, giving the last 25 years of his 93 years on earth to help poor people in the state capital of Indiana.
He was a walking example of the biblical character of Job: "I was eyes to the blind and feet to the lame. I was a father to the needy and investigated the cause which I did not know."
