Cousin Sonny will be missed. My Mom Caroline (Bower) Wagoner called to tell me he passed. He was influential in the lives of many including mine. He accepted me as I was and gave great advice. Love to all the family from ours to yours! ~ Katrina

I know this is a rough time my 🙏🏽 are with everyone. Sonny Loved his good times in Michigan. He entertained a lot of people singing his songs. He is highly missed by everyone no one was ever a stranger. Love talking about his family.hard-working man, Who enjoyed the farm life. Enjoyed listening to him talk about his children and his time in Vietnam when his best buddies was writing songs and singing when they could. His dream was to make a CD to give to all his loved ones I’m glad I was able to do that for him. he wanted the music of him singing to be with them forever in a CD. Now he’s with the angels singing. You’ll always be in our hearts.
