    Very sorry to hear of Sonny’s passing. That infectious smile and spirit will always be remembered! Sonny and I were teammates at HCC and shared great times on and off the court. In recent years I got to visit with him at several KU games and it was always so nice to see him. What a kind soul, indeed. May his family and friends be comforted by the wonderful memories he left us with.
