Sonny was born on July 2, 1940, in Washington, DC. He enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1963, served his country and was discharged under honorable conditions.

Sonny was a taxi driver in Fairfax County, as well as a commercial truck driver for many years before retiring in the early 2000s.

Sonny loved to play his guitar, sing, tell jokes, making people laugh and travel. He loved his family so very much, and was a ladies’ man. He had a smile that would brighten up the room and an infectious laugh to everyone around him. He was very much a people person and was loved by all that had the pleasure of knowing him.

Suthard, and their two Children; Daughter Kitty Plummer and Husband Roy Plummer and their Five Children and Four Grand Children; Son, David Matthew Coe and Wife Brittany Coe and their two Children. He had a total of nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Sonny was preceded in death by his newborn daughter; his mother, Frances Finnell; his father, Bascom Slemp, and his sisters, Nadine Hoosier Riley and Barbara Compton Spindle.
