Lonnie Grizzel

Lonnie L. Grizzel, 45, of Georgetown, passed away Monday, April 22, 2019. He was born August 28, 1973 in Cincinnati, Ohio, the son of Kenneth E. and Ava Grizzel of Summerside.

In addition to both of his loving parents, he is survived by his wife, Dr. Lisa Mulford-Campbell; children, Cody Campbell and Christina Mulford; brothers, Michael Grizzel, and Brian (Lisa) Grizzel; also survived by numerous extended family members and close friends.

Lonnie was a proud veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and currently worked for Jeff Wyler Automotive family. He was also an umpire and referee for multiple sports and associations in the Cincinnati area. Lonnie enjoyed time with family, horses, and his dogs, both at home and at horse shows. In recent years, he was particularly passionate about supporting the youth riders on the Southern Ohio Equestrian Team, and he had significantly reduced his referee/umpire obligations to make time to attend shows with the team.
