Beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend passed away on Monday, June 10, 2019 in Florida with his family at his side, at the age of 70 years. Sonny was born July 10, 1948, the son of the late Raphia Milo and Anna Cecilia (Roche) Ecker. He went to Douglas MacArthur High School. He worked for many years at Excel Direct Saginaw Warehouse. He married the love of his life, Wilma Letson, on October 24, 1980, in Saginaw; she preceded him in death on April 16, 2015. He was a member of Calvary Community Church and Saginaw Gun Club. He enjoyed restoring hot rods, riding motorcycles, and camping with his family at the Wilderness Campground. Above all, Sonny loved the time he spent with his family.
