    candle 1Still so hard to believe this is happening. Sonny will be forever missed. We can’t imagine him not being a part of our Duck Club family. He has done so much for that club, for his family and for his friends. He will never be forgotten. RIP Sonny ~

    Sonny was a very special person and one that I will miss as long as I live. He and my brother were very close and he was the very first one to come to my house on Christmas Day in 1967 the day my brother was killed. I will never forget that and how good he was to my mom and dad. I only wish I could be there but I am in northern Minnesota and have people scheduled to be at my cabin this weekend. My thoughts and prayers are with you all and I will see you when I get home

    Sonny, all of your friends will miss you! I agree with Tom Nick, never a harsh word between us! The only word between us was who had the fastest Coronado! Met Sonny in 1957 at “Dog & Suds”

    To all Sonny’s family, we extend our deepest sympathy. We’ve know him since roughly 1955, when we met at St. Charles High School. When Dad had the Plaza Wrecker business and garage, he and Sonny became friends. Dad also thought highly of him. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with all of you. as you go through this sad time,

    candle 8Sonny. You were so kind and warm and always took the time to make conversation and make people feel at ease. It just won’t be the same
    Without you, but you are resting easy and are so deserving of it. Love and blessings to the family.

    candle 8Sonny was one of a kind, he was always ready to help, and was one of the nicest people I have ever met. He will be greatly missed. I am sure he is in heaven looking down on all of his friends. Especially his river friends that he treated like family. I was lucky enough to have him as a river friend, Con Trios past Commodore, and a customer of his salvage yard. My family and Body Shop employees sent out love and prayers to you and your family.
