Born December 3, 1949, in Rowan County, he was the son of the late Orville Terry and Lucille Click Terry. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy Louise Pelfrey Terry on August 29, 1995; six brothers, Billy Ray, Orville, Norville, Doug, Paul, and Timothy Terry; and four sisters, Faye Roberts, Rita Cornett, Debbie Johnson, and Marshia Whittle.

He enjoyed farming, hunting, fishing, debating with others, and doing arts and crafts. His greatest joy was spending quality time with his children, especially his grandchildren. Lonnie will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed.
