It can be difficult to find just the right birthday gift to give a person who inevitably has it all. For the family of Morris C. “Preacher” Lovelady, a man who has given more than he has received during his lifetime, finding the most appropriate way to honor him on his 87th birthday didn’t appear to be an easy thing to accomplish at first.
That all changed a few months ago when Lovelady’s daughter, Lois, and the rest of his loving family started work on creating a golf tournament to honor their father and one of his favorite organizations, the Boy Scouts of America, in the process.
Golf has been more than a sport for Mr. Preacher over the years. From before the time he helped oversee the construction of the University Golf Course in 1965 as the supervising engineer, playing golf has been a passion and a regular part of his daily life. (July 19, 2010, Page 6)
Family members are putting together a very fitting tribute to Morris “Preacher” Lovelady, who’s contributed so much to the Lafayette-Oxford-University community through his work on campus, with the summer baseball programs and with Boy Scouts.
