A gentle giant. A warm and loving man and human being. To know Sonny was to love him. I remember the endless smiles and hours of laughter whenever we shared time with Sonny. I will never forget how my mom loved him the very first time she met him as they shared all the stories of growing up in the old neighborhood in Little Italy.
Rest assured she and countless others were waiting at Heavens gate to welcome him home. Sonny will never be forgotten. ❤️

There aren't enough words to capture all the wonderful things that were Sonny. From the moment you met him, he was funny and kind. He always made you feel important. And, he loved his wife like no other. What a special relationship they shared. Lynn's stories about Sonny and the hysterical things that happened daily in their house made me laugh out loud. May he rest in peace and keep watch over Lynn and the kitties. Sending my deepest sympathies for your loss, Lynn.
Love, Kelly and Tim

My memories of Sonny are all tied to Lynn...inseparable. I just know the angels were happy to welcome Sonny home, for his presence among them will surely keep them smiling and at peace.

Where do I words will never do Sonny justice. The man was simply the best. He would do anything for his friends and I will always remember all the things he did for my in-laws. He epitomized friendship. This doesn't even touch on his sense of humor...the guy had you in tears every time you spoke with him. He always had a great way of looking at life and never let life’s obstacles bring him down. I’m still in shock that I won’t get to experience his sense of humor and presence. He was someone that I thought would always be there. I will miss him dearly. Rest in peace Sonny... you touched so many people and will never be forgotten.

I drove to West Meadow Beach near my home and reflected on how meaningful Sonny’s life was to all of us. He kept loved ones, who have passed, in our memories, and shared all his fond memories of everyone. In a sense, he was everyone’s memoir to the lives we never wanted to forget, yet hold dear to our hearts. He was able to make all the deceased come alive, with such love and humor. He was truly unique. Who does that? Who speaks, in jest and admiration, so lovingly, so often and with candor about his relatives. He kept so many loved ones alive with his recollections of their idiosyncrasies. He was a gem, one that will forever shine in all our hearts. You know, he breathed life into everyone. No one was just a person to Sonny. He found humorous words and anecdotes to share about our family and he always left us with a kind and loving feeling about whom he spoke. He shared his gift of love, for everyone, with everyone. What a guy. ️

Sonny amused others and himself so much with his jokes and antics,that he had to laugh at the end of every one with a distinctive laugh that will live in our hearts forever.

This morning I looked thru the Journal News Obituaries.
I knew Sonny! He had to be the same Sonny as I ran to my elementary school graduation photo from St. Patrick's Old Cathedral in Little Italy. My regret is that living in Airmont for 56 years I never suspected that anyone else from the old neighborhood was in the county as well. I feel such a tremendous loss. We could have touched base and laughed about our grade school years.

Funny I don't remember Sonny as impatient and stubborn. He was a caring and kind human being. A real gentle soul in his youth and as a gentleman in later years.

My sincerest condolences to Lynn, Richard, Amelia and extended family members. Sonny touched many hearts and still remembered after all of these years.
