He was such a very nice man. loved his family. I have one memory that stands out. He lived in his daughter Carol house in Ft Smith. and on may 5th not sure of the year a tornado hit Ft Smith and The home was destroyed. I remember the day cause it is also Angela's Bday. We all got in there and cleaned up. He will be missed by so many. Hugs to all of you. Ms Bobbie I am so sorry you two were awesome couple very much in love, hugs to you.

I first met Lonny back in the late 70's I believe. We became good friends, played a lot of pitch games together, and talked a lot of sports. He was great with a grill, and one of my favorite memories is being on Big Mulberry Creek, and eating a hamburger he made from deer meat. I did't like deer meat, but I liked that burger. RIP Lonny.
