He was born August 26, 1949, in Poplar Grove, AR to Olan and Mary (Jenkins) Hughes. Lonnie was an honest and hard working man. He is described by his family as very giving and kind. After graduating from school, Lonnie was drafted into the United States Army where he bravely served his country in Vietnam as a medic. After returning home, he went to trade school where he learned and became a master electrician. Knowledge that would benefit him his entire carrier in the maintenance field. He started at Gingrey in Memphis, TN and ultimately retired from Baptist Memorial Hospital in August of 2022 after 19 years of faithful service. As Lonnie loved working with his hands, he had many hobbies and talents, which included wood working and build things from scratch. He also enjoyed building models, jigsaw puzzles, and working in his yard. It is said he even made great peanut butter cookies. But nothing meant more to him than his family, who will miss him dearly.

We are so sorry to hear that my wife's brother had passed away. We love him dearly and he will be sorely missed. We met in Vietnam and I'm married to his sister because of that meeting. Will see you on the other side.
