Lonnie was an avid sports fan. He loved the Dallas Cowboys and the Houston Astros. Any time a game was on he could definitely be heard loudly cheering them on. He loved to laugh and to make you laugh. He always had a joke or a funny story to tell. He loved when you had one for him. His laugh was contagious and you would find yourself laughing even when you didn’t feel like it. He loved to play cards or dominoes and was always ready for a game or two or three, at any time.
