Lonnie was born in Cedron Creek, Bosque County, Texas, on March 13,1939 to James Obediah and Myrtle Lee Lloyd Duke. He was the 6th of 8 children, and was preceded in death by his only sister Mary, and both parents, in the early 1940's.
Lonnie Sr spent a large part of his youth in Buckner's Orphanage after the deaths of his parents. He spent his high school years with the Donald and Margaret James family on their dairy in Peaster TX, attending high school there. After graduating, he joined the Navy.
After his Navy stint was over, he married Frances Kennedy, on June 9, 1961, and had 4 children, Cherie, Margaret, Lonnie Jr. and Kristi.
They were married for 15 yrs before his early and unexpected death. He enjoyed bowling, deer hunting, and square dancing.
He was a loving husband, father, and brother, and a faithful friend to many.
He was taken from us all, way too soon.
He is missed dearly, and daily.
