I may not be a part of his family but you would have never known he treated me just like I was his grand daughter any time he took his grand kids to get icecream he always took me and my sister too. I've known him for about 34 years and the memories I have of him and his wife hellen I will cherish forever. I always enjoyed going over to their house and hanging out with their family and eating awesome food. My favorite memory was watching him dance and sing to hank William and Conway twitty
I have known Lonnie for 40 years. I will miss him dearly. I have drank many a cold one with him. I worked with and admired him. He was at times a father figure, friend, boss and someone that would give you the shirt off his back if need be. I loved him tremendously. Rest In Peace sir.
