Sonny was truly a jack-of-all-trades-meat cutter, truck driver but took great pride in being an employee of Blackwater Falls State Park for the last years of his career. He enjoyed spending time with his family and grandchildren. Fourth of July was his favorite holiday, hosting the family gathering at his house was his greatest joy.
