Lonnie Allsup 1933-2018
We extend our sympathy to the family of Mr. Lonnie Allsup, who passed away January 28th at the age of 84. There are very few people who do not know of or have not heard of Lonnie Allsup. Many associate his name with the highly successful chain of Allsup’s stores numbering over 300 located in more than 160 cities and towns all through our area, but many know and associate Lonnie with the world that involved his ranches, the desire to breed and raise quality horses, and eventually his success in showing in AQHA and NCHA. He hosted horse events such as the Adrian Berryhill and El Cid Futurities for years. He also served as President of the NCHA and has been instrumental in advancing and backing the horse industry where he lived in New Mexico and also in our surrounding states. The latest support came this year to our Panhandle Cutting Horse Association through his donation of a free breeding to his successful sire, KIT KAT SUGAR...known also as SKEET. The proceeds from this breeding raffle are going to our PCHA/PDCHA youth scholarship fund. Mr. Allsup will be missed by all, but he will not be forgotten. His legacy lives on through all that he accomplished in his life and through all the lives he touched. He made the world a better place by being in it.
