It is with profound sadness that I tell you my beloved Son Lonnie ( Stomper) Mendoza passed away this day of April 2, 2021.
He became ill during the COVID 19 pandemic, but was not diagnosed with COVID. It was a blood disease that affected all of his body and ultimately his organs.
Stomper, was a son, a father, and a friend to many. If you knew him, you knew he had a great love for Celena, his children, Sam, Ralphy, Charlie, and his friends. His second love was music. From the time he was a young boy his passion for music was his biggest motivator. It was this passion that would always be his escape and his reward. He devoted his entire career in music to his fans. He believed that music could heal the soul and make everything better. He loved his fans and appreciated the love he received in return.
Our hearts are broken.
Any donations towards the cost of his funeral expenses, medical expenses, and the young children he leaves behind would be greatly appreciated by our family during this tragic time. I, his mother, as well as his eldest child, will be in charge of funeral arrangements and any additional expenses.
