  1. My Dear Cousin’s Bonnie Fred and Jerry, it was a very sad morning when Mom (Leona Kvaas Plummer) called with the sad news that your Dad, Uncle Sonny had passed away. Norm and I have many fond memories of both him and your Mom Aunty Jean (RIP). Uncle Sonny saved us a few times in our lean years after returning from Mackenzie, (do you remember?)… making sure that Norm always had a job at the Municipality of Pitt when needed. Your Dad was a GOOD MAN. Wish I could be there tomorrow with Mom to help her through this Celebration of Life. She and Uncle Sonny were always close, her BIG BROTHER.

  2. Sorry for your loss
    I enjoyed talking, hunting and fishing with your Dad
    He was a hell of a nice guy

  3. Fred jr., Jerry, Bonnie,
    Wow I just learned of this today. Fishing and hunting up Pitt Lake with Sonny. Camping down in Birch Bay with Jean and all of you with Jeff and Chris were all very special times. Sonny was truly a mans man and always made me laugh. May. peace be with you all and know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your parents.

    Kind regards,
