Aycock was a senior vice president and market manager of Enterprise Business and Community Engagement for Bank of America and served on the board of the United Way of Long Island.
“Over her decade-long involvement with the organization, Lorraine was instrumental in establishing several important community impact initiatives, including the Bank of America Summer Youth Employment Program and Professional Development and Community Service Project,” the United Way of Long Island said in a statement. “She was particularly committed to Long Island youth and veterans, helping to improve their lives through education and career training. We will miss Lorraine’s smile and grace and will continue with all that she has created, in her memory, for decades to come.”
She had also served on the boards of the nonprofit Community Development Corporation of Long Island, the Family Service League, and the Farmingdale College Foundation. She additionally served as a trustee of the First Baptist Cathedral of Westbury.
Prior to joining the Bank of America in 2000, Aycock worked in the School of Education at Hofstra University.
