Lonnie passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 24, 2011 to be with the Lord after battling cancer.

He will be dearly missed by his wife Jennie; sons Matthew and Michael; mother Grace; stepfather Jackey Chong; and siblings Ray (Lily) and Debbie (Scott). Lonnie was predeceased by his father Leonard. He will always be remembered for his love for God, servant heart and his spirit of gentleness, humility and integrity.
