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.
