FRANKFORT-SCHUYLER – Lonnie T. Kroll, age 63, of State Route 5, Frankfort, passed away unexpectedly, on Saturday afternoon, March 23, 2024, at his home.

He was born on October 18, 1960, in Utica, New York, the son of the late Thomas and Beatrice (Franklin) Kroll and attended UFA. Lonnie was employed in assembly and packaging with CABVI for many years. His lack of being able to see did not ever impede him from being what he was to all of us, an all around great, fun guy. He had a lot of family and friends who loved him and he loved them. He had a YouTube page and followers who enjoyed his music.

Surviving family members include his siblings, Barbara Humphreville, Judy Foti, Dennis Dygert, Sandra Kroll and Brenda Kroll; his nieces and nephews, Clayton Humphreville, Jr., Thomas Humphreville, Arlene Vibbard (Cory), Brian Humphreville, Jacy Humphreville, Derrick Humphreville, David Franklin, Lori Schrader (Arnold), Christine Franklin Lawrence, Brian Franklin, Chenoa Franklin, Chanel Franklin; and many more and lots of cousins.

He was predeceased by his mom and dad; his siblings, David Franklin and Norma Kroll; and brother-in-law, Clayton Humphreville, Sr.
