Harry R. Honsaker, "Sonny" of Lehigh Acres, Florida age 85, passed away on February 3, 2019 at Hope Hospice in Lehigh Acres, Florida after a long illness.
Born in Uniontown, PA, Harry entered the Unites States Navy at the age of 17 and honorably served his country during the Korean War. Harry loved football, especially the Miami Dolphins and his beloved Florida Gators "GO GATORS"! Harry owned several businesses in Lee County, Florida. He was a self taught culinary expert and loved baking for this family and friends. His specialty was his home made pizza which rivaled any pizza parlor, anywhere. Harry also loved fishing, gardening, and working with his hands. He designed and constructed many of the homes that his family has lived in over the years.
Harry leaves behind his beloved wife Theresa of 63 years, his daughters Sharon (Bob) Tice, Dawn (James) Snow, his grandchildren Chris (Katie) Tice, Billy (Alissa) Doering, Erica (Jay) Alago, Jesse Snow, and Carlee Snow, great grandchildren Zach Tice, Morgan Tice and David Alago. Harry also leaves behind many beloved nieces and nephews. Harry has now joined his mother Elizabeth "Jean" Honsaker, and sisters Marjorie Wyeth, and Ann Fike and no doubt, they are having a grand reunion.
A Memorial Service will be held at 11 am Thursday, February 7, 2019 at Hodges Funeral Home at Lee Memorial Park 12777 State Road 82, Fort Myers, FL 33913. Flowers or memorial contributions in his name to Hope Hospice would be appreciated.

Although we did not live near, I have many great memories of my Uncle Sonny. When I was 7 my Mom his sister passed away. He came to Uniontown to spend time with his Mom, my Grandmother. Being in 2nd grade at the time I remembered him making me laugh and helping me with my spelling homework. And Yes I got an "A" on the test. Before kids, Mark (my Husband) and I were on a trip to Florida; we stopped to visit and got the chance to share a meal prepared by Uncle Sonny. I remember thinking what good cooks Him and Aunt Terry were. We then got the chance to spend the day on Sana Belle Island fishing and enjoying the sunshine. Several years ago Uncle Sonny came to visit Aunt Ann in Uniontown. Timothy, my son, and myself spent the day together talking old times from when Uncle Sonny and his Mom and sister's were growing up. The last time I saw Uncle Sonny and Aunt Terry was when a friend of mine was attending a Wedding in Ft Meyers and she ask me to join her. After calling to see if we could meet, we ended up eating at steak house near there home. We had a great talk about our life's. Wish I would of called Uncle Sonny more often. The last time I talked to him was when his Sister, my Aunt Ann passed away. Once again we had a great conversation. I know there is a large reunion going on in Heaven these days.
Sending out my deepest sympathy's to Aunt Terry, Sharron, Dawn and Families. From Linda Wyeth Miller & Family
