Lonnie L. Jones, Jr., 44, of Blue Ridge, GA and a former resident of Cleveland, passed away from this life on Wednesday, February 17, 2016.  He was a graduate of Bradley Central High School where he played in the Bradley Marching Band.  Lonnie graduated from Cleveland State Community College and attended the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.  He graduated from East Tennessee School of Preaching in Karns, TN.

 Lonnie was a football fan of the Vanderbilt Commodores and the Pittsburgh Steelers.  He was a man that loved his family and enjoyed spending time with them and simple activities, including his love for the Fannin County Band.  He had a great spirit that would light up a room and a handshake that you knew you were loved.
