Man Bowls Perfect Game, Then Dies

By  | 

He rolled the third perfect game of his life, and then collapsed and died at the bowling alley.

Sixty-nine-year-old Ed Lorenz bowled a 300 in his first game last night at Airway Lanes in Portage.

In the middle of his second game, he clutched his chest and fell over.

Efforts to revive him failed.

Lorenz was a divorced father of four children. He lived in Portage.

Friends say he started bowling in 1957 and ended last season with a 223 average.

Lorenz rolled his first two 300 games during a one-week period in October of 2004.

He was inducted last May into the Kalamazoo Metro Bowling Association Hall of Fame.
