Sonny was a former member of Faith A.M.E. Church, Fostoria, and St. Stephen A.M.E. Church, Toledo. He played numerous sports for Fostoria High School, from which he graduated in 1970. He enjoyed shooting pool, and was a huge sports fan, especially the Cincinnati Bengals and the Dallas Cowboys teams.
His family and granddaughters were the joy of his life. He will always be remembered for being the life of the party, a jokester, always making people laugh. He liked to have fun.
