Lonnie was born in Rayville, LA, on January 29, 1949, to the union of Lonnie Scheon and Ruth Tschampel Morris and departed from this life on Thursday, July 8, 2021, at Ochsner Medical Center O’Neal Campus in Baton Rouge at the age of 72 years.
He was retired from the U.S. Postal Service, served with the U. S. Air Force, graduated from Istrouma High School, and was a devoted, faithful member of First United Pentecostal Church Denham Springs. He enjoyed fishing, engaging in conversations, visiting his family and friends, and researching his genealogy. Lonnie had a huge heart of caring, compassion, and helping others. His family will always remember him as being a sugar junkie and a “horrible” driver! He is preceded in death by his parents.
He is survived by his siblings: Ivory John Morris and his wife, Linda, Deborah Morris Drago and her husband, Jake, and Karen Morris Guillot and her husband, Lind. He is also survived by nieces and nephews: Jacob, Angelina, Julianna, Craig, and Erika, as well as great nieces, nephews, and, of course, his beloved church family.
In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts are preferred to First United Pentecostal Church, Denham Springs.
