Lonnie Green, 55, beloved uncle and brother, transitioned this life on February 4, 2021 after a brief illness. Lonnie was a lifelong resident of Austin, TX where he attended Austin public schools.
Lonnie was the youngest of five children born on February 4, 1966. His parents and brother, Dave Wilson, preceded him in death. Lonnie is survived by his sisters, Clarice Carr (William), Carolyn Wilson, and twin sister Connie Franklin all of Austin, TX, and Rosalind LaPica, a special niece, Marcus Green, Anthony Green, Lamont Barlow, Daniel Barlow, Keith Carr and Rayland Smith, special nephews, who were always there for their uncle to the end. Lonnie had countless lifelong friends and he was a mentor to longtime neighborhood friend, Sydney July, who called Lonnie Uncle, childhood cousin, Jan “DuddleBug” Black and in-law Raymond "Trey' Smith, III. Lonnie had cherished relationships with all his many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Lonnie was an avid sports fan with a special interest in boxing and he was an excellent swimmer during his youth at Givens Park. He also loved the outdoors and could be found sitting on his front porch socializing with anyone who walked or drove by the house like his mother did before him. He had many hobbies and interests especially fishing, listening to music especially the blues, horses, and trail riding. Lonnie could tell a story line like no other and he would always think and say he was the King, not the Jack, of all trades to include repairing cars, barbecuing, wooing the ladies, spades, dominoes and dog training, just to name a few of his passions.
Lonnie never met a stranger. He spent many hours at the “Hog Pen Stables” in East Austin visiting friends and taking care of his horses. Lonnie will be fondly remembered for his creative workmanship. Even with his medical challenges, he still drove his truck around the city doing plumbing, carpentry and landscaping work for family and friends. Lonnie had a heart of gold will be remembered for his love of family, dedication to community and his kind and generous nature. He will be deeply missed by his loving family, many friends and the lives he touched along the way
