Lonnie was born in Lewiston ID to Lon Manning and Hazel Manning. Lonnie attended grade school in Orofino, ID, then moved with his family to Dayton to the homestead on the North Touchet where he spent most of his life. His love was driving truck; if it wasn't logging truck it was grain truck or semi's; that's what he loved.

Lonnie loved his family. He never married or had any children, but he had nieces and nephews and cousin, great ones and great great ones, which he loved each and every one.  He loved having them all at his place at the pond; camping, swimming, riding 4-wheelers. BBQ'S  etc.

Lonnie retired in 2004 from Broughton land company.

Lonnie loved his two dogs Lucy and Marley those were his kids he would say.

With all of the physical issues going on with him he loved people. His last few years of his life he would go every morning to Dayton PT to have coffee with Loretta and visit with the rest of the staff....he then would go home and visit on the phone with his Sister Gladys.
