Lonnie Lee Logue, 71, of Williamsburg, passed away Monday, April 3, 2017.

He was born Aug. 26, 1945, in Virginia, Ill. After graduating from high school in 1962, Lonnie joined the U.S. Navy and was stationed in San Diego, Calif., from 1962 to 1966.

When he completed his service in the U.S. Navy, Lonnie began his 40-plus- year career in the restaurant business, working in positions in management and as a chef, retiring from Two Rivers Country Club in August 2010.

Lonnie enjoyed working on DIY projects around the house and working in his garden. He was an avid reader who particularly enjoyed reading pictorial books on foreign cities and history. He loved feeding all the wild animals in the yard (as well as the neighbors dogs) and riding around the neighborhood on his beloved scooter. His family will miss his fantastic cooking, particularly around the holidays. He always had a smile on face and was known as the life of the party.

He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Sophia Logue; sisters, Wanda and Doris; and brothers, Jim and Ray.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 47 years, Penny; daughter, Jennifer Nielsen (John); two grandchildren, Eva and Max of Copenhagen, Denmark; sister, Martha Wesselman (Ron) of Franklin, Ind.; and two brothers, Sonny Logue (Linda) and Fred Logue (Merleda), both of Rochester, Ill.; as well as cousins, nieces and nephews and other family members.

A memorial service will take place at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 15, at Nelsen Funeral Home, 3785 Strawberry Plains Road, Williamsburg.
