Lonnie Alvin Harris Jr., 69 of Dale, Texas, passed away March 19, 2014. He was born in Austin, Texas, to Lonnie Alvin Harris, Sr. and Ruth Elizabeth (Cox) Harris Oct. 14, 1944.
He is survived by, his wife, Susan Wolf Harris; daughter, Laura Harris Townsend and son-in-law, Greg Townsend; daughter, Jennifer Harris Jaggers and son-in-law, Todd Jaggers; grandchildren: Cory Christopher, Chelsea Elizabeth Rene, Chloe Grace, and Brighten Hope Townsend, Joshua Harris and Amanda Elizabeth Jaggers.
He was honorably discharged after serving eight years in the Army National Guard, worked as a diesel mechanic, owned a trucking company, a car dealership, and later found that he enjoyed real estate and managing rental properties. Lonnie was kindhearted, compassionate towards others, and loved Jesus Christ. He was unashamed to share his faith with any tenant or car buyer.
Lonnie is more alive than ever in the presence of Jesus Christ. We look forward to the day that we will be reunited with him.
