Sonny was an avid hunter and motorcycle enthusiast. He was a man of many talents. Sonny could build and fix just about anything. He was an avid story teller and loved to share his knowledge of any topic there was. Even through his recent struggles he maintained his sharp witty personality and always put the needs of others before his own.
