He will truly live on in his children.

Lamonds Jr. and his wife, Crystal; grandparents, Ozzie and Karen Lamonds; his niece he loved dearly, Melody Lamonds; very close cousins, Billy and Audrey Riddle and Alayana "LayLay" Riddle; special aunts and uncles, Susan and Merlin Smith, Leonard and Gloria McDaniel, Orman and Joy McDaniel, Shirley McDaniel, Stanley Lamonds, Chris Lamonds and Treva Lamonds; and his neighbor he called Sis, Donna Shifflett. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Caroline Johnson, Orman McDaniel, Shirley Day and Reggie Johnson; and his uncles, Jesse McDaniel and Clarence Pete McDaniel. The family would like to express their sincere thanks to Hospice of the Piedmont and his nurse, Molly for their compassion shown during this difficult time.
