Grandpa Lonsberry was a kind, loving, thoughtful, and very humble individual. I always saw him loving his wife, his kids, and his extended family in the best way he knew how. His faithfulness towards Karol was shown through his commitment in standing by her side for the remainder of their lifetime. His caring and sensitive side was showcased through the efforts he made for his family. Thankful Grandpa is at peace in a much better place. I love you Grandpa!

Love, Your Grandson,
— Eric Loveland
