WHITE OAK — Lonnie Ray Davenport Sr., 73, was born June 20, 1947 in Sweetwater, TX to Mary and Elonzo Davenport. He met his wife of 54 years, Maragaret, at a drive-in theater in Slaton, TX, and they were wed soon thereafter on January 7, 1966. Lonnie retired as a 5 star installer for Lucent Technology. He enjoyed coon hunting, fishing, and raising pigeons in his free time. He was known for passionately loving the Lord Jesus Christ, his family, and having a wonderful sense of humor- doing his best to bring a smile to everyone. He lived life gracefully doing well to be at peace with all. He is survived by wife Margaret Davenport with children: Lonnie Junior, Ronnie and wife Tracy, and Dee Ann with husband Clint Ratcliff. Grandchildren include: Jessica with husband Jon Brady, Taylor, Mason and fiance Taryn, Mackenzie, Chantelle with husband Andrew Grahn, and Ashton as well as nine great-grand children.

There will be a private service with immediate family only. If led to send gifts of remembrance please send to the Davenport residence. Our family is a circle of strength and love. With every birth and every union, the circle grows. Every joy shared adds more love. Every crisis faced together makes the circle stronger. (June 20, 1947- July 27, 2020)

Prayer when a Parent Dies.

We knew it had to happen eventually, Lord, but it hurts so much when someone so important to us is suddenly taken away.

And our sorrow is mixed with regret, Lord.

In our pursuit of our own goals and in fulfilling each other's needs, we have sometimes neglected our parents those who made it possible for all good things to happen to us.

We thank you for our parents, who have contributed so much to our lives.

Even while we feel sorrow at their absence, we would not wish that they be held back from the beauty and glory you have in store for them.

O Lord, use this experience to deepen our commitment to your will for our lives, and lead us into fearless confrontation with death when we pass from this world into your eternal domain.

We commend our loved one to your tender care, O Lord.

He is yours forever.
