Sonmore, Ronald age 94, passed peacefully on Saturday, November 20. He was a beloved husband, brother, Father, Grandfather, and Great-Grandfather. A shining example of the Greatest Generation, Ron was a World War II Navy veteran, and served his country proudly. He was delighted to be honored with a Dream Flight last summer as a thanks for his service. A devoted husband, Ron met Alice, the love of his life, in high school. They were happily married for over 60 years until her passing in 2010. Ron was a man of deep faith, devoted to his family, friends, church, and community. He liked all things train, enjoyed singing and travel, all the family pets throughout the years, and had an encyclopedic knowledge of so many things about the world. Ron was a wise and honest man, and will always serve as a role model to his family. He will be dearly missed and fondly remembered. Ron was preceded in death by his parents Irene and Rueben, wife Alice, and sister Joan. He is survived by daughter Nancy Sonmore, son Steve Sonmore (Naijin), grandsons Eric Sonmore and Joel Vaillancourt, and great-granddaughter Marissa Sonmore. A celebration of Ron's life will be planned at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Feed My Starving Children or Second Harvest Minnesota.
