So soon after his beloved wife, Lin passed on, Lon has joined her. Our dear friend died 22 November, 2019.

Words cannot express my frustration not hearing from him or seeing him again in this lifetime; he was a force of nature and a joy to be around! A very youthful 70 years old and perhaps it was the non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma that felled him, but I think it was something more powerful that has taken him out of our dimension.

Lon, my brother, we will miss You! I still wouldn't hire You!!

No way, I tried to find him in December while I was in Greeley Colorado. I will miss him. He was a class act.

Lon will be missed by all those who he touched. His stories that he shared with us here made this place brighter.

I shed a tear, but also know that he is in his rightful place.

AS may win some battles, but I will win the war.

I am so truly sorry to hear Lon is no longer with us. I enjoyed his posts and eagerly waited for a new one to 'appear'. Well he is in a much better place now. I will miss him. Rest in peace, Lon.

Haven't been checking in and just happened to learn about our KA treasure Lon. I know Lon had friends throughout the places he lived and ministered to but I know he took great comfort in being able to share his pain here. Truly enjoyed his humor and friendship.
