Garrett's Leaf

The University of Dayton on Sunday, Sept. 16 will dedicate a garden memorial to recent graduate Garrett Loiselle, 22, who died in May of cardiac arrest in Florida.

Friends and family of Loiselle, of Normal, Ill., will remember him with a Mass at 10 a.m., Sunday, Sept. 16 in the Immaculate Conception Chapel on the UD campus, followed by the dedication of a leaf memorial in the Serenity Pines Garden, located on the hillside below Marycrest and Gosiger halls. A luncheon in Torch Lounge at Kennedy Union will follow the dedication.

Loiselle died May 12 during a spring trip to Daytona Beach, Fla., of natural causes related to an enlarged heart.

The son of Kerry and Paula Loiselle, he graduated from UD with a bachelor's degree in finance in May. His sister, Lauren, began her third year at UD this fall.
