Sonny loved the Lord with all his heart, mind, and soul. Studying his bible every night, visiting inmates at the local jail for 27 years. He was a member of Fairmont United Baptist Church in Dunlow, WV.
Sonny's joy of gardening, gospel music, his work shed, and outdoor Christmas lights showed that through his labors of love he wanted to share joy. He never met a stranger and was always laughing. We thank God for allowing us to love him and have been loved by him in return.
