In the early 80's, Sonny and I worked together at a store called Nite Owl in Orono. It's where Aroma Joe's is now. It was 1983, and I was working in the store alone on a very slow night. I did not know that the Grateful Dead were at UMO that night. Late in the night, I looked out the window at the road going to the campus, there was no rotary back then, and all I saw was headlights coming my way. We were the only store in Orono open, and the first one you see, and the store was immediately raided by 'dead heads" looking for snacks and booze. The store was packed, and all I could think of was.....I need to call Sonny! Sonny was there as soon as I got off the phone, and his dad Harold came as well. They both stood up front and kept an eye on things, they had my back. When the night was over and we checked out the store, it was a complete mess. Sonny and Harold Sr. helped clean up a bit, then we had our own beers. Sonny and I played softball together in Hampden, our team was Nite Owl and changed to Blue Demons, we had a blast. Sonny was our catcher, and I played 3rd base. My best memory was standing at third and watching a baserunner round the bag at third and head for home plate. The throw from the outfield was perfect, Mike Murphy I think, and Sonny caught the ball ahead of the runner. He made the poor decision to try to run over Sonny. Sonny stood there with the ball in his glove to tag the guy, and when he ran into Sonny full speed, he dropped like a brick. Sonny even helped him up, it was awesome. We spent a lot of nights around Bangor at various establishments for cold drinks, as well as his fraternity. Nite Owl delivered kegs and we took a few there! I moved to NH in 1984 for work, and lived in NH for 34 years. Unfortunately we lost touch over the years. Sonny was an awesome guy, I have many great memories of our times together. My prayers go out to his family, he will be greatly missed. Mike Scribner

Our sincere sympathy to Sonny's family. We have special memories of Sonny at Orono High School as a member of the track team. He also returned after graduation to help Cliff with coaching of the shot and discus events. A fine young man! Cliff and June McCormick, Milbridge, Maine.

A Man and a Brick. This is a story of a trip tp Fenway and I mention of this to my friend. Went to the Ballgame one day and as always there early. There were 3 men working on the brick wall to the entrance of Gate B. We walked by and I stopped and said I under if I could get a brick from them. Walked back and asked one of the guys said sure here's one we took out we replacing. Now I have a Brick from Fenway Park 1934. Take back to car and go to the Game. I few weeks later in Bangor Visit with the folks at Sonny's. We got taking baseball and the brick came up. Sonny says I like to see it I happened to have in back of SUV. He look it over and said let me show this to my friends I said sure. Now this is almost like handing a guy your wallet in Red Sox country. But with Sonny no worry. He was just one of the few in life we meet and you trust. I was in a couple weeks later and Sonny see me walk in we talked about stuff like we always did. He say o I got your Brick. and from the Back he comes big smile and says hope you like it. Wow. A simple story of a Great Man that some many were Blessed to have known. God Bless his Loving Family each and everyone. We Love ya Sonny Save us a Table.
