Lonnie Reid

March 25, 1933 — September 7, 2022

Oakwood - On the morning of September 7, 2022, God called His faithful servant, Lonnie Lee Reid, to come Home. Lonnie peacefully slipped away to answer that call. Lonnie transitioned at the Villas of Holly Brook in Danville, IL. He was born on March 25, 1933 in Pharoah, OK to Chester Lee and Nina Pearl (Webb) Reid.
Lonnie leaves behind to celebrate his life his wife Katheryn Sue (Lampert) Reid; children Elisabeth Claire Reid, William David (Susan) Reid, and Aaron (Erin) Kyle Reid; grandchildren Blake (Jessica) Reid, Jennifer (Joseph) Schneider, Alex (Blake Campbell) Smith, Allyson Reid, and Tyson Reid; great-grandchildren Miraya Reid and Zeke Reid; best friend Larry (Sharon) Whitman; many other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents; son James Adam Reid; grandson Zachary Kyle Reid; siblings William Reid, Ilda Calvert, Barbara Wilson, and Don L. Reid.
Lonnie enjoyed deer hunting, fishing, carpentry, watching old westerns, and listening to gospel music. He spent 47 years in the field of education in various capacities; teacher, administrator, guidance counselor, and school psychologist. Lonnie’s pride and joy in life were his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Lonnie served our country in the United States Army during the Korean War.
