Lonnie R. Hoyt Sr., 81, passed away peacefully on November 14, 2020 at Columbia Memorial Hospital. He was born on December 18, 1938 in Hudson, the son of David and Anna (Madison) Hoyt. In 1956 he entered the Army and served until 1958.
Lonnie was a painter by trade, and also owned and operated the Once Around Antique Shop in Greenport. No yard sale was safe, as he would search out the bargains, antiques and treasures. When not searching for treasures, he could be found hunting or fishing with his family. A member of the Hudson VFW and the Moose Club. He will be remembered for his avid storytelling, and his flirtatious personality.
Lonnie is survived by his three sons, Lonnie Jr. and his fiance Sherry, Robert and his wife Martha, and Ricky and his fiancé Tina Florio. His three grandchildren, Kacie Hoyt, Robert Hoyt Jr., and Melissa Hoyt. Seven great grandchildren, along with several nieces, nephews and many cousins.
He was predeceased by his loving wife, Jennie (Snow) Hoyt in 2013, his grandson Lonnie Hoyt III, and granddaughter Heather Hoyt.
Visitation hours will be held on Wednesday afternoon from 2 to 4 at the Bates & Anderson – Redmond & Keeler Funeral Home, 110 Green Street, Hudson.
