We love you James and we so sorry for the lost of your dad. You are one of my best and closest friends and I’m here for you.
He was the first drummer I ever got to play music with. The Sounds of Knight, 1968 Arkansas Tech, Russellville, AR. Rest in peace my friend.

Lonnie has been one of my best friends for many years. We worked together at Rock-Tenn for about 37 years and played Rock and Roll music together for 34 years. I will miss him we had many good times together. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Juana and his children and grandchildren.
As a retired Rock Tenn employee, my wife and I send our thoughts and prayers to all of you in this time of grief. May God bless you each day until you are reunited with your loved one.
Rest In Peace ole buddy, we’ll jam again someday
