Lonnie Joseph Nelson

August 14, 1954 — January 26, 2023

Philadelphia, Pa

Lonnie J. Nelson was born to the late Rita Nelson on August 14, 1954. He attended St Edwards Catholic School in Philadelphia and later went on to pursue a post-secondary education in Culinary Arts. Though he enjoyed cooking for his family and friends, he transitioned to a career with the IRS.

Lonnie, aka Pacman, enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, traveling and riding his motorcycle. He lived life on the edge; and even joined a biker club where he formed a brotherhood with Arms of Inferno. Lonnie was known for being a jack of all trades, and someone you could count on when you needed a hand. He will be dearly missed by all that had the fortune to know him.

Lonnie was cherished and survived by his partner, Mercedes Concepcion; two sons; four stepchildren and a slew of grandchildren.
