Alonzo “Lon” Felts, age 85, of Covington, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, February 8, 2020 at St. Elizabeth Hospice Center.
Alonzo was born the son of the late Matt and Martha Felts on October 8, 1934 in Corbin, KY.
Lon worked as a supervisor at General Motors in Norwood, Ohio for 28 years. He was awarded the Vogelsang Award for his volunteer work for over 15 years with the Taylor Mill Boosters. Lon grew up in the Dorthae Pentecostal Church in Corbin, KY, but in later years was a member of the Taylor Mill Pentecostal Church.
He will be remembered as a huge UK basketball fan. Lon was raised a carpenter by trade and was a hard worker who loved to fix things. He could do anything from building a house to making a small repair. His greatest joy was spending time with his grandchildren.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by grandson, Brett Allen Harmon; siblings, James Roy Felts, Kenneth Felts, Carl Ray Felts, Lena Adkins, Captola Sulfridge, Carol Faye Smith, and Lillie Crawford.
Alonzo is survived by his wife of 61 years, Faye (Alsip) Felts; children, Rick Felts, Vicki (Steve) Robinette, Diane (Barry) Harmon, Connie (Gary) Oaks, Ken (Denise) Felts, and Matt (Dorothy) Felts; twelve grandchildren, Joel, Amanda, Christopher, Brett, Kyle, Kenny, Josh, Mitchell, Melissa, Michael, Christopher, and Aleshia; great grandchildren, Nathaniel, Brayden W., Mckynlee, Londyn, Brett, Brayden H., Jacob, Kennedy, Micah, Audrey, Thea, Lyla, Brendan, Colton, Daphne, Brady, and Cambria; sister, Anna Mchargue; and numerous nieces and nephews.
