We are saddened by Lonnie's passing. He was a good man that wore many "hats" during his lifetime and excelled in his endeavors. Prayers for the family.

We have many good memories of our days at Caneyville and Lonnie was a part of those memories. In the day when teachers had to go to work in the summer, Lonnie gave Jack a job and he was not just the boss, he was our friend. Evelyn, so sorry for your loss.
