Lonny Cody Tilley

June 14, 1963 — July 30, 2019

Lonny Cody Tilley, 56, of Ruckersville, VA passed away on Tuesday, July 30, 2019 at his residence. He was born on June 14, 1963 in Charlottesville, VA to John and Rosemary Tilley.

Lonny graduated from William Monroe High School in 1981. He was very meticulous on any job given to him and very knowledgeable in many different fields including electronics, landscaping and a troubleshooter for any situation. He worked for Tad Coffin for over 20 years at Tad Coffin Performance Saddles. Tad was always a very loving and supportive employer and friend who stood by Lonny through thick and thin. Lonny comes from a Christian family that loved him unconditionally through any situation. He will be truly missed and remembered as an avid NASCAR, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Redskin fan. He loved animals, especially his dogs, Suzie Q and Cally Lou and his cat, Mousie.

In addition to his devoted parents, John and Rosemary Tilley,  he is survived by his loving wife, Lisa Tilley; his daughter, Schuyler Tilley (Aaron); step daughter, Amanda Nelson (Abe); loving brother, Trenton “Curt” Tilley; grandson, Daxton Frye; step grandsons, Daniel and Elijah Nelson; Aunts, Ann, Betty, Wanda (Jack) and Mollie; cousins, Donna, Cathy, Julie, Beth, Linda, Josh and Ferrel; and sister-in-laws, Wanda and Carolyn.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Fred and Vera Tilley and Trenton and Mary Graves; and great uncle, Ernie Graves.

The family would like to thank special friends and family for their loving support: Lois, Diane, Lorna, Gloria, Wanda, Shane, Jamie, and Erin. We would also like to thank the Greene County Sheriff’s Department and Rescue Squad for all of their efforts during this tragic event.

“To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.” Romans 16:27
