  3. Jim Sporleder condolence:

    Dear friends: Everyone called him “Grandpa Lon.” And he was glad to have that name as most of us already lost our grandparents. He could fix almost everthing that broke, and loved to help others. And he loved to serve the Church and God. He had it all – loving family and friends. A real tribute to a great man. Jim Sporleder

  4. Raymond Bohl condolence:
