He will be missed by friends to many. He will always be remembered for his quick wit, love for both family and community. He spent many days with friends on the golf course, and bowling in both NH and Florida. His deep loyalty to the New England Patriots and Red Sox was always a conversation to be had. His family nicknamed him “Sonny” for obvious reasons. We love you; you will be forever in our memories.
