My condolences to Lois, Paul and all of Sonny's family and friends. He was a fun-loving person, who enjoyed bringing a smile to the faces of those around him. I also remember him as an upbeat and energetic phys ed teacher, who encouraged us to see the value in sport. His guidance and tips on the court are the reason I enjoy basketball to this day. Sonny will be missed by all who knew him. My thoughts are with all of you in these difficult times.
Lois, Frankie, Paul and family, so sorry for your loss. Your Dad had a very large personality. It was always fun to drop by Dad’s house when Sony was there to see what shenanigans those two were up to. Always many laughs greeted you at the door. And in later years Sony always dropped by to see Mom and make sure she was ok. I always appreciated that. He was a very kind man. I hope your good memories of him carry you through the sad times.
To all of Sonny's family and friends:
Very sorry to hear of Sonny's passing.
My prayers and sympathy to everyone.

Fond memories as a student who loved sports and having Sonny as a coach. Then I was fortunate to teach on staff with him at IME. Sonny was always positive and uplifting when you needed it the most…just an awesome co-worker especially to us rookies! My deepest condolences to Lois, Frankie, Paul, and all his family. He will be remembered!
My heartfelt and sincere condolences to all of Sonny’s family. An enormous smile and a big welcoming personality are my memories of Sonny. Sonny’s home was a few doors down from mine in D’Escousse. Sonny was my Phys Ed teacher at IMDH High School and he was also an in-class teacher. He was also one of my favorite teachers!
As an in-class teacher Sonny was very entertaining. Anyone who has ever attended his Geography class would be able to attest to this. I remember Sonny saying on one occasion, “What are we going to study today”, (while standing in front of the class randomly flipping through pages of the geography book, no class notes, just randomly flipping until he saw something of interest.) Sonny was also a confidence booster. I remember Sonny asking me to assist him in refereeing an intermural basketball game in the IMDH gym. He would be the head ref and I would call the out of bounds and retrieve the ball. We did this arrangement for a while until he eventually asked me to be the head ref and he would do the sidelines. A compete switch and a confidence booster for me. I will never forget those days. I am sure Sonny has had the same effect on other students. That is who he was as a teacher. Sonny, I am sure that the celebration of your life will be attended by many from D’Escousse, from the Island and from places and people whose life’s you have touched. Rest In Peace, for we all shall follow.
Dear Lois and Paul and family, our deepest condolences on your dad’s passing. To all of us he was our favorite gym teacher who kept us laughing. I can still vividly remember the day Sonny effortlessly climbed the gym ropes to the ceiling. To a kid it was like Superman! May your memories of Sonny keep you smiling and laughing. What an amazing legacy he leaves. Sending a big hug and our love,
Ann Raghavan & family ❤️

Met Sonny while at St. F.X. Always entertaining with that big smile. Over the years since then X basketball games were the meeting spot. A genuine human being in every way.
Lois,Paul and Family: It is with fondness that I recall numerous occasions running into your Dad and how he related so many stories about his teaching in L'Ardoise and the great number of friends he made.He was certainly a man of determination and vision, never forgetting his roots and the people who influenced his life. May he share in the banquet prepared for him .

Please accept my deepest condolences and prayers for the loss of your dad .Sonny truly was the life of a party will miss seeing him when I go to Cape Breton.
Always enjoyed chatting with him when we went down .
Dear Lois and Paul; It's with the deepest sorrow that we hear of the passing of your Dad. There were many days and nights that I, and many others, enjoyed singing, ( maybe a drink or 2 ) laughing ( again a drink or 2 ) a joke ( maybe a sip ) that we had with your Mom and Dad, I for one will always remember. But what I'll remember most is the time and friendship we had together for the last 65 years or so. All the best to the family. Jim and Lorraine Gould
So sorry for your loss ,he was a great gym teacher and person.
My memory goes back to a time when I was about 12 years old and came out from Rocky Bay through the Doyle‘s road on my bicycle for a day visit. We were joined by Herman Bona and Glenn Bennett, doing whatever boys do, and playing in the brook with the rowboat.
Those visits, however, would not have been complete without seeing Mathilde and Annette, milking the cows and singing church hymns to them. Aunt Gladys would always have supper before I made the journey back home.
