Lonnie Wayne Goss, born on January 3, 1971 passed away at his home on April 18, 2023.
Wayne had a smile that could light up a room and a laugh that could warm any heart. He enjoyed socializing and helping anyone who needed it. Wayne was a “Jack of all Trades”, and there wasn’t much he couldn’t do. He spent the majority of his work life running heavy equipment, plumbing, and doing mechanic work. He loved trading old cars. Often you could find him working on an old car, listening to music and singing along. Wayne had been battling health conditions, but with the help of his loving family, he was making great strides in hopes of meeting his first grandchild. To God be the glory, he had begun nurturing his relationship with Christ that helped him remain steadfast on improving his physical and spiritual health.
