Lonney was a mentor to many of the students at the high school and throughout Florence Township. He was a loving and selfless individual who always put the needs of others before his own. First and foremost to Lonney was his love for his family. In 2009 he became Pop Pop to a new joy in his life when Olivia joined their family.

Just what the doctor ordered! He will be sorely missed by many and forever loved by all.
