Obituary of Victor (Sonny) George Shannon

It is with deep sadness and broken hearts that we announce the passing of Victor (Sonny) George Shannon, of Martinque that occurred at his home on February 18, 2022 at the age of 73 years, with his loving wife by his side. Sonny was born July 26, 1948 in Arichat, and was the son of the late George Patrick and Liola (McDonald) Shannon Sonny was a quiet, gentleman who kept his own counsel. Whomever crossed his path will smile fondly remembering his dry humor, unfailing kindness and empathy for others. His profound bravery in the face of over whelming challenges was dignified: the kind of courage that was quiet and unassuming. He was a man quick to laugh and slow to criticize. Simply, he was as fine a person as you could ever meet. He was a member of the United Brother Hood of Carpenters and Joiners of America, Local # 1588 and a member also of the International Union of Painter and Allied Trade Local # 1945.
