Sonny was employed as a truck driver for his entire career and retired from Statewide Aluminum.  He also served the Osceola community as an auxiliary Police Officer during the 1980’s.

In his spare time, he enjoyed riding motorcycles, spending time outdoors, drag racing at the Osceola Dragway and spending time with his boys working on cars in his garage.  Most of all, he enjoyed going to family reunions and spending his time with those closest to him.
