For many years, Sonny worked for the Arcadia Valley School District in the maintenance department and was a skilled carpenter. There wasn’t much Sonny didn’t have a hand in when it came to keeping the school in top working order. He was proud of the work he did and it showed in his workmanship and character. He was kind to all of the students and staff and made the school a better place for everyone.

Sonny was a believer in Jesus Christ, attended the First Baptist Church of Pilot Knob, was a life-time member of the Arcadia Valley Elks lodge, and was a true friend to many. He will be missed by all who were blessed to know and love him.
