Tribute

Lonnie Jackson Borland, 90, went to his heavenly home on Friday, April 29, 2022. He was a kind, happy, caring, humorous individual who never met a stranger.  Lonnie was employed  for approximately 30 years  J.P. Stevens later becoming Westpoint Pepperill.   Lonnie was a proud veteran of the US Air Force and the Korean Conflict.   Lonnie loved golf and was a member of the Senior Men’s Club at Blair Park Golf Course.   He took several trips a year with his two special friends, Don Douett and Gary Vaughn to the coast.  He was an avid fan of the Washington Red Skins and the Atlanta Braves.

He was preceded in death by his daughter Martha Todd and his parents Fred Jackson Borland and Gladys Tobin Borland.  He is survived by a grandson Joshua Morris, sister Patsy Borland Auman and numerous nieces and nephews who adored him.

After a stroke in August of 2019 he moved to Providence Place at Westchester where the staff and nurses treated him like family.  We would like to especially thank Lawana, Keisha  for all the love, help and kindness they showed Lonnie and our family.  We will be eternally thankful.  Also to the staff from Hospice of the Piedmont, especially Holly.  She was a real blessing.  Thank you all for the love you showed us.
