Our protective Big Brother. The best big brother anyone could have ever had. The ultimate Boy Scout. Extremely good (and goofy !) sense of humor. Adored his two daughters (Erika and Ashley), wife (Donna), and brand new granddaughter Madison. Hero in death, as he had suffered his third heart attack, and was one of 200 who underwent clinical trial surgery to implant a left ventricular assisted device next to his heart. Survived the surgery for 5 weeks and was weak but awake for 4 days, Sonny left us and joined Daddy while yet another procedure was being performed in an attempt to help him heal. Took a piece of all of us with him, but no doubt Daddy was wanting Sonny to go fishing in Heaven with him, and like always, the temptation was just too much. Rest and Fish in Peace, big brother.
