Sonny will always be known for his leadership, selfless acts of service, devotion to his family, and most importantly his love for his Lord and Savior which he so freely shared with everyone. He was a kind hearted big brother and uncle to us. We will always remember his laugh, his smile, and his family prayers. His presence will be greatly missed, but we rejoice that he is celebrating with Christ and our loved ones who have gone before him.
