Many years of great fun fishing with Sonny and Kevin.
We have all looked up to Sonny. He had a great passion for doing something that he loved doing so much. Talking to him after his last tournament, Sonny told me that after missing a couple because of the weather, he just missed it so much..
We’re all going to miss seeing him on Saturday mornings, but we know that he’ll still be watching us.
I am very sorry for your families loss. Rest in peace Sonny. Fish on!!!
