Lonnie Junior King
The Guest Book is expired.
On July 7, 2014, Lonnie Junior King moved to his heavenly home. Born in Little Rock, Alabama on October 29, 1943, he passed away at the age of 70. Lonnie was a man of character: A character of service, compassion, devotion, and so much more. The gift he had for building and business allowed him to be in the position to assist those in need, to build the dream homes for many families, and to be there to help his own family as often as possible which was probably his greatest priority. Nothing made him happier than for his family and friends to be gathered together, to be surrounded by those he loved. As we hold on to his memories, let's not forget the binds of love that he held tight to his heart. Let us live on in a way that would honor him. With the character he taught us by example, the most important being in a relationship with his Savior. It is through that relationship alone that we again will be with Lonnie one day. On the other side where he will be waiting with arms open wide. Until that day, live, laugh, love in a way that would make him proud.
Lonnie was preceded in death by his father, Lonnie Jackson King; mother, Mary Frances King Rutherford; step father, David Arthur Rutherford; and brother, Jerry Rocky King.
