He was a 50-year resident of Lake Stockholm in Jefferson Twp., NJ. Sonny graduated from Tottenville High School and proudly served in the United States Marine Corps from 1953-57. He studied architectural drafting at the Manhattan Technical Institute and worked for almost 30 years in the executive office construction department for F.W.

Taking after his father, who was a chef, Sonny loved to cook for family and friends. Sonny is predeceased by his sister, Barbara Clauser (1983).

Gloria, my world is gloomier without Sonny in it. Please let me know when his memorial will be. I do not have your address, phone number, or any contact information. I thought he was in my e-mail contacts because he was on my prayer chain for a while. Please know how bad I feel for you and your family. He was a precious friend to my viejo.
