    Our thoughts and prayers go out to Sonny’s family. I worked with him at Keystone-Ohio and have many fond memories of him. A trusted co-worker, a decent and honest man, and an even better friend to my wife and I.
    It always amazed me how his face would just light up whenever he talked about his family. He will be missed.
