Sonny would not remember me he was just a little lad...but fond memories of his Mother and Dad and the good times at Mink Lake ,,Sundays were family picnic days with my Mother's brothers and sisters the Loxtons. May he rest in peace.

We got to know Sunny through his daughter, Donna and spent many great times camping with the family.

Lots of tales of hunting and fishing!

Sunny always had a kind word and was a patient person.

We will miss you Sunny and will always light a campfire in your honour.
