Angie I am so sorry to hear of Lonny’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Lonny was a great guy. We had some really fun times. I always remember our canoe trip that turned into a long walk, little water and first thing that happened we lost our food and beverages. We all made it home safe. Lonny just kept saying “now girls don’t worry everything is going to be alright. “ All the while he hand that little grin on his face like maybe we didn’t believe him. I still remember the day of your wedding. It was a beautiful day. Keep all those memories close to your heart. Love Pam

I first met Lonny while working at Harmony 10 years ago. I was not aware that he and Angie owned the 5 & 10. I went in looking for some blue eyeshadow for a Halloween costume. They did not have any, but on Monday morning Lonny came into my office and handed me a makeup kit with everything I needed. It was obvious that he would rather not be carrying it around, but Lonny was always there to help with anything and everything. Over the years I have been treated to his wonderful sense of humor and kind heart. My heartfelt condolences to Angie, Amanda and all of his family and friends. The world has lost a truly wonderful, gentle giant.

Hi All, l am very sorry about the loss of Lonny. Although I have not seen Lonny for many years, I had a lot of fun times with Lonny and his brother Randy when I was between 11 and 17 years of age. Lonny was into 🎣 fishing and hunting and it was fun to spend time with him. Lonny was a very nice person and easy to get along with; very relaxed personality. Lonny, you’ll be missed ! To Lonny’s family, I again mention that I’m very sorry. Love, Jay
