I have many memories with SONNY. The first time I met Sonny was on the lot where My father (Alfred) kept his paving equipment, Sonny was driving a red and white 1954 Chevy convertible. He was fresh home from Korea. He started working with Uncle John in the garage shortly after. David and I relied on Sonny's expertise for years. I all but cried when he left to work at the Arsenal. I missed him then and did for the next 30 or so years. Sonny was the front end alignment and carburetor man no one else had his touch.
I Miss Him still
