When Chris passed away last August, his siblings, Nancy ’66 and Steve ’69 made the decision to honor Chris’ memory with a new tree on the OLL campus. On Wednesday, June 8th that goal was achieved as Father Connolly blessed and dedicated this memorial in the school courtyard. A small group of students along with Lourdes President, Catherine Merryman, Lourdes Principal, Meghan Vilardo, Chris’ sister, Nancy ’66 and her husband Michael Murphy, Chris’ brother, Steve ’69, and his wife Chele ’70 were in attendance. The family received exceptionally generous donations for this effort from Lourdes alumni in classes 1966 through 1973 and they are grateful to all who participated. This memorial will remain as a lasting tribute to not only Chris but the entire Turletes Family.
