Sgt. 1st Class Parson a resident of Glennville, Georgia. Right before Lonnie left for Iraq, he told his grandmother exactly what he would do and how he was going to do it. 'I take care of my men, I look after them,' Dorothy Carpenter recalled her grandson saying. 'And I don't tell them to do anything that I wouldn't do.' His stepfather took him along on his training weekends with the National Guard. Lonnie enjoyed being around the military vehicles and all the military stuff. He had been working at a meat packing plant when he enlisted in the Army on Jan. 1, 1988. He fought in Operation Desert Storm and served two recent tours in Iraq. He was a sweet, easygoing person real lovable.

He is survived by his wife, Michelle R. (Presley) Parson, Glennville, GA; his son, Lance James Parson, Glennville, GA; his daughter, Paige Leann Parson, Glennville, GA; his mother, Thelma Catrett, White House Fork; previous stepfather, Doug Gray, Pine Grove; maternal grandmother, Dorothy Carpenter, White House Fork; two brothers, Jesse Gray, White House Fork and Curtis Gray, White House Fork; his sister, Pamela Higginbotham.
