Western Washington University employee Alonzo (Lonnie) A. Perrin passed away on Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2010, from a heart attack. He was 52.

A nearly 10-year employee of WWU's Transport Services and Central Stores, Lonnie was known throughout campus. He had a quick and easy smile and a big laugh, which he shared often during his work as a driver and warehouse worker. He started as a temp at WWU in early 2001, and he was hired full-time in July that same year.
