In Memory Of

Leroy Bonner

Guest Book

Never will be forgotten. Had the pleasure of Meeting Leroy in San Antonio after a concert, very nice man. May his soul rest in peace.

These Ohio Players served as a role model of sorts for a young impressionable kid, The first time I saw them I said "these dudes are bad!" and I wished to be just like them. Sounds naive now but they helped me grow up, I miss he type of music they made.

Sitting on my couch listening to Angel
Although im saved now I always love this song
Sugarfoot you sang and played your heart out
On this jam R.I.p.

How sad - I've only just learned of his passing ! I love Ohio players but have just had the news and it has shocked me ! RIP and I will always remember your fantastic music x

Just so sad

Truly not forgotten... Jst saw his story again on Unsung 12/25/2016...saw him in concert in oklahoma city, okla in the early80s

Sitting here watching UNSUNG reminiscing of the time you came to Starplex Amphitheater in Dallas. The Ohio Players were the closing act. It was the end of October and the weather had started to change. A lot of people had started to leave because they were under dressed, therefore I got a chance to go down front right in front of the stage. I positioned myself in front of Sugarfoot with the intentions of asking him to marry me, although my husband was standing right behind me. Lol

"SUGARFOOT" Thanks for bringing the FUNK and putting the Midwest on the map in the music industry back in the 70's. I can still see myself doing the bump to my favorite song "SKIN TIGHT" and never getting tired, everybody knew that was going to be 15mins of non-stop dancing. Thanks, for showing that AFRICAN AMERICAN women are beautiful by being one of the first bands to put us on your front album covers....MUCH LOVE...MUCH LOVE......I WILL ALWAYS LOVE ❤ THE MUSIC AND...
