Lonnie Gaskins was born October 28, 1928, in Sanderson, Florida, to the late McKinley and Nellie Gaskins.
Lonnie lived in Sanderson his entire life. As a child, Lonnie took great joy working with his father on their farm. As an adult, Lonnie worked for Seaboard Coastline Railroad (now CSX) for forty years as a trackman. After retirement, he started gardening again in his leisure time.
