It is with great sadness that the family of Lonnie Robert Buerger announces his passing on Sept. 9, 2019 at the age of 70 years.

Lonnie was a stalwart Christian and member of Crossroads Deaf Fellowship Church in Goliad, Texas. 

A lover of family, gardening and all things outdoors. Lonnie was a strong and patient man, never one to pass judgement and always quick to help whenever someone was in need. 

He was a loving brother, husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend to everyone. 

Lonnie will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 44 years Esther and their children Elizabeth Wood, Lonnie Buerger II and Christina Senf. 

Lonnie will also be fondly remembered by his sisters Marsha Gray, Betty Agan,  Enola Tullis; brothers Richard Buerger and Tommy Buerger along with eight grandchildren and seven great grandchildren, many nieces, nephews and extended family. 

Keeping with Lonnie’s giving spirit, his remains will be donated to a Medical University in lieu of a funeral. PD
