Posted by Deborah.Walker on Wednesday July 18, 2007

On Saturday, July 21, a memorial service will be held to celebrate the life of Lonnie Morrison, Jr., a former Nyack College golf coach, who passed away recently. The service will begin at 12 noon at the Joseph P. Kennedy Center, 34 West 134th Street between Fifth and Lenox Avenues in New York City, NY.


A one-time high school golf coach in Virginia, Lonnie recruited students from the Portsmouth, VA school to attend Nyack College.


Remembering Lonnie’s time at Nyack, Keith Davie, Director of Athletics & Head Men's Soccer Coach commented, "We are all saddened by Lonnie's passing.  His spirit and smile were infectious and he was a big part of our department while he was here.  His passion and persistence led to the creation of Nyack College Golf and his name will be synonymous with the golf program from now to eternity.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Lonnie's family during this difficult period of time."
