So sorry for our losss. I know Lonnie from St. mary. He was one of a kind. Always smiling and always seemed to have a joke or two. He would always si Hi to me when ever he saw me. His humor was one of the best things about him. His love for his family was number one in his book. He will be greatly missed.

The Godfather was one of the neatest people I've ever met. Sincere, caring and full of mischief, his jokes were the highlight of our visits together. RIP Lon.

Always knew if Lonnie was at the track, we had someone to help us. Never forget several times I would stand with Ron Smith & Lonnie discussing how we could make races better for the Karters. He enjoyed being around kids, as he was one himself. God Bless you and the children during this difficult time.
