Lennis Summers, Jr., 71, departed this earthly plane on Saturday, September 12, 2020.

Lennis was born on December 30, 1948 in Stephenville, Texas. He graduated from Stephenville High School in 1967 and attended Tarleton State.

Lennis was preceded in death by his parents, Lennis Summers, Sr. and Frances Summers.

Lennis is survived by his son William Summers, William’s wife Sarah, and granddaughters, Leland and Robin.

He is also survived by his sister Beverly Looney Freeman; brother Frank Summers, Frank’s wife Toni; nieces Tina, Lesa, Rachel, and Shannon; great nephews Alex, Stephen, Oliver, and Kristoph; and great niece Emily.

Early in his career, Lennis made mattresses at Summers Mattress Factory--the Summers’ family business. Later, Lennis worked in childcare and child education, and transitioned to a career in Information Technology. He was best-known as a highly respected musician and singer/songwriter, delighting audiences with blues, classic rock, and many fine original songs. Notable appearances included a Christmas Day performance on Fox 4 (KDFW) Good Day and numerous performances of children’s music on WFAA’s Mr. Peppermint.

Lennis is remembered for his friendliness, kindness, and gentleness, and is cited by many as being their mentor in music and in life.

Lennis will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and fans.

Lennis was laid to rest at West End Cemetery in Stephenville in a small family graveside service on Sunday, September 20. An online memorial service is being planned in the near future.
