Lonnie Lee Allender

December 19, 1955 - July 17, 2021

Lonnie Lee Allender, 65, a resident of Cape Coral, FL since 2016, formerly of Olympia, WA, passed away Saturday, July 17th, 2021, at 12:34 PM EST, surrounded by family and love.

Lonnie was born December 19th, 1955 in Centralia, WA to Maurice Lee and Betty Jane Allender, now deceased.

He was a Boilermaker by trade and a part of the Boilermakers Union. When he retired in 2015 from BMT NW in Satsop, WA, he was the shop supervisor.

He was an avid hunter, fisherman, Harley-Davidson enthusiast, and enjoyed the outdoors as much as he could in his life. His travels took him to Wyoming and Montana often. As well as Alaska, Hawaii, Florida, Oregon, California, Idaho, North Carolina, South Carolina, and many other states.

He was a father, a son, a brother, an uncle, a cousin, a husband, and a friend. He loved his family, his work, the Seattle Seahawks, and his country very much. He was passionate, kind, funny, fun, adventurous, smart, the neighborhood mechanic, handyman, and so much more. He was just a one-of-a-kind man all around who will be missed very much by all that knew him.

He is survived by his loving daughter, Krystall Allender (Jerald Clark) of Cape Coral, FL; Ex-Spouse, Gail (Brenda) Allender of Cape Coral, FL; Sister, Leala Cliburn of Summit, MS; as well as his niece, Summer Sky Tarver (Chelsea Tarver) of Tazewell, VA.

    He will truly. Be missed he reminded me so much like my dad. Enjoyed the times when we go fishing. He always made the best prim rib. The way he slow cooked on his hand made grill. He always had a smile for everyone.
    Love you❤️🥲

    It’s been a long time since Lonnie and myself have been able to able to create memories, but in our past we have a lot. From riding motorcycles and racing short track. I remember when I took him hunting for his first time at Mt Saint Helens. He couldn’t believe that there was that much land with no houses. It was a great weekend of camping and just having fun. Lonnie did manage to get a 2 pt then. All the hours on his boats over the years and the time on King St. We even shared a house out in Galvin Washington (can’t believe the house ib still standing and worked together at Quali-Cast in Chehalis, Wa.

    I didn’t get to know Lonnie all that well but I leave a comment of comfort and love to the family and friends that lost him. Rely on each other for strength and comfort and grieve until you’re done. There is no time limit. Love each other alot, answer the damn phone when it rings. Talk to each other now and say what needs to be said. Life’s too short to tell someone you love them AFTER they’re gone. My deepest sympathies to you all.

    Sorry for your loss Lonnie was a great friend I hadn’t seen him in many year.

    I like Wendy did not get to know Lonnie very well. We did live on the same road, O’Conner road out towards Bucoda during high school. What I remember is that he always had a smile. I am sure his family will miss him along with his close friends. I pray for peace and comfort as they grieve the loss of Lonnie.

    I just found out today. I’m so so sorry.

    Lonnie……..You were always like another brother to me when your sister and I tried to get away with all our shenanigans. My dad even taught me how to drive a stick on O’conner rd coming home from that little house.I think of the Allender clan every time I cruise the Bucoda highway.
    It was fun running into you after I was all grown up riding my own Harley.
    Happy trails to you my friend and may you Rest In Peace.
