Life Reflections

 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
