Lonnie Lee Mundt, 47, of Hershey passed away on May 12, 2018 at Great Plains Health.
Lonnie was born on Feb. 23, 1971 in Hastings to Larry and Marietta (Redinger) Mundt.
Lonnie attended Sandy Creek High School and then moved to Ord in 1985, graduating with the Ord High School class of 1989.

He continued on the road as a commercial welder all over the country.
