Lonnie ‘L.D.’ Dee Sirman, 80, of Forestburg, passed away Sunday, Nov. 20, 2022, in Fort Worth.

Funeral services will take place at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 26, at the Montague County Cowboy Church in Montague, with Pastor Joe Caballero officiating.

Burial will follow at Perryman Cemetery in Forestburg.

Family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 25, at the White Family Funeral Home in Bowie.

L.D. was born Aug. 31, 1942, in Bowie, to parents Woodrow and Minnie (Chesser) Sirman, of Forestburg. L.D. graduated from Forestburg High School and joined the United States Army. He served at the missile base in Denton, where he met and married Sue. The couple would have celebrated their 60th anniversary in March. He was so proud to be celebrating 60 years of marriage.

L.D. was an owner and operator cattle hauler for 30 years. After retiring from trucking, he worked in Denton, delivering new Peterbilts to every state in the U.S. and all outer provinces of Canada. He was known for his beautiful and well-kept trucks and his spotless appearance. Someone was always commenting that he looked too neat to be a bull hauler.

He loved his wife, children and grandchildren more than anything. He was a member of the Montague County Cowboy Church and was baptized just two months ago. He was a proud American and loved his country. He was always ready to help anyone, not wanting thanks or recognition. He was a quiet man with a huge, giving heart. He will be missed by so many.

He is preceded in death by his parents; younger sister, Mary Blocker; and brothers-in-law, Arlon Alexander and Joe Snider.

L.D. is survived by his wife of almost 60 years, Sue Snider Sirman of Forestburg; daughter, Page Sirman of Forestburg; son, Bart Sirman and wife, Hollie, of Rhome; sister, Sue Alexander of Shallowater; his most prized possessions — his grandchildren, Tyler Sirman and Drew Martin of Eugene, Ore., Sloan and Ethan Morman of Fort Worth, Hannah and Hunter Geer of Cody, Wyo., Slate Souther of Fort Worth, Seth and Mandi Sirman of Chico; and numerous nieces and nephews.
