On Saturday, May 9th at 11AM, friends and loved ones of the late Morgan Powell will gather at Woodlawn Cemetery to finally bring him home and lay him to rest in his beloved borough and one of the places he loved so much.

From The Friends of Morgan Powell:

“We will all gather at the Woolworth Chapel at Woodlawn Cemetery to pay our respects and celebrate the life of an amazing man, Morgan Powell. We have the chapel for ONE hour. The closest entrance is the Jerome Ave entrance. Immediately following the service we will be making our way to Brookside (on the opposite side of the cemetery) and meet at Morgan’s memorial rock. Cars are allowed, but bikes, roller skates, scooters, skate boards and the like are NOT. It is a four minute drive, but a 20 minute walk. Please plan accordingly and transportation cannot be provided. The memorial rock is closer to the 233rd Street/Webster Ave entrance. If you have any questions, please feel free to send us a message. Thank you. Friends of Morgan Powell”
