He joined the US Air Force as soon as he was able. He began his music career playing in clubs near where his was stationed. After the service, after being discharged in Michigan he got a disc jockey job at WSDC in Marine City MI. He also recorded several records and performed at local dances.
He was shot in the bathroom of his home by a jealous husband. Even though he was a lady's man, Lonnie's relatives deny he was with the woman. She was attracted to him though. Roger Fetting was convicted of the killing. Lonnie was inducted into the Michigan Country Music Hall of fame on Oct 12, 1975
