Lonnie Roland Langley, Sr., resident of Santa Fe, Texas passed away March 23, 2017, at home, surrounded by his family. He was born February 4, 1935 in Buckeye, Arizona to parents George W. Langley and Thelma L. Langley. Lonnie was a high-performance motor sports mechanic specializing in speedboats and race cars and a journeyman welder.
Lonnie had a passion for racing offshore speedboats, racecars and street cars and he always raced to win.
Lonnie leaves behind a very lasting legacy for his children and grandchildren. A legacy of values instilled by love and example. He was a leader and a teacher. Lonnie taught his children and grandchildren to love, honor and respect everyone that they came into contact with; he taught them the value of hard work and fairness. By far the greatest gift Lonnie leaves behind is that he believed in each of his children and grandchildren. Believing always that they could do anything they set their minds to.
Lonnie’s favorite Quote was:
Love Is Our Law
Truth Is Our Worship
Form Is Our Manifestation
Conscience Is Our Guide
Peace Is Our Shelter
Nature Is Our Companion
Order Is Our Attitude
Beauty and Perfection Is Our Life
