Lonnie always made everyone feel welcome. He always knew how to make me laugh and brought a smile to my face. He made sure to show everyone compassion and acceptance and never left anyone out.

I will always remember LONNIE as a fun loving man that always remembered your name and asked how you were. I have heard several stories about him through the years from the family and how he always would do his own thing and not worry about anything. He enjoyed it when the family would get together at Thanksgiving and Christmas and he would love the gifts he would receive. He will be missed by family and friends he has made through his life. Goodbye Lonnie, you were loved.
