Born in Hartford on April 10, 1942, the only child of the late Joseph N. and Lucy (Peruccio) Gammo, Sr., he had been a resident of East Hartford for many years and Colchester for over 30 years prior to living in New Britain for the past four years.

Sonny is survived by an aunt, Pauline Cline of East Hartford; several special cousins and their children who affectionately called him "Uncle Sonny"; and many dear friends.
