Lonnie was my father-in-law and after our divorce he always considered me family when others turned their back to me. I always appreciated that. I shall miss the stories, lots of good stories. Find your peace my friend.

My wife Shelly is Lonnie's oldest daughter Shelly. Rarely has there been a more gentle man, who welcomed me into his family with open arms and stories of fishing and driving trucks, things we both had in common. I respected him greatly, and loved him more. A good man, who loved his girls and wanted to be the best Daddy he could for them. I will miss him greatly, and I know he will be missed by his family.

Rest easy, buddy. I will take care of Shelly as I promised I would. I hope to fish with you again someday.
