Alanson (Lonnie) L. Fratt, age 84, passed away on January 14, 2022, surrounded by his loved ones. He was born on July 4, 1937, in Omaha, Nebraska to Homer and Clella (Philpott) Fratt. In fact, he always thought the fireworks were to celebrate his birthday and his mom always said he came into this world with a bang.
Lonnie married his long-time friend and love, Nancy Fritcher, in December of 1960. In his younger years, he enjoyed drawing religious and cartoon artworks, playing the piano, and watching football. He also served in the US Navy before he started his family with Nancy. Lonnie was known for knowing no stranger and treated everyone as family.
Lonnie is survived by his wife Nancy and four of their children: Lonna (Todd) LeGrande, Deanna (Dwayne) Johnson, Kristin Podliska, and Kevin (Katrina) Fratt. He has multiple grandchildren including Amy (Ryan) Bernhardt, Matthew (Jamie) Miller, Nicholas (Jalyn) Miller, Jenilee Schaecher, Scott Schaecher, Jacob (Amanda) Schaecher, Payden Podliska, Kesha Fratt, Kaleb Fratt and Kaitlyn Fratt; and many great-grandchildren.
Lonnie is preceded in death by his parents, Homer and Clella Fratt; son Timothy Allen Fratt; brothers Harold and Roger Fratt; and multiple aunts, uncles, and cousins.
