Everett Louis "Sonny" Clair Jr., 71, of 15th Street, died at 3:25 a.m. Friday, July 5, 2013 at Willow Crossing Health & Rehabilitation.
Sonny retired from Cosco, Inc after many years of service. He was an active member of Garden City Church of Christ.
In his free time, he enjoyed fishing, hunting (squirrel, rabbit, and deer), gardening, bowling, traveling with Shirley Davis, and spending time with his friends and family.
Many would say he was a jack of all trades and a master of none. There wasn't anything he couldn't fix or do. He was always out in his garage working on something. For many years, Sonny was on the church bowling team and participated in the senior league at Columbus Bowling Center.
The funeral service will be at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Barkes, Weaver & Glick Funeral Home on Washington Street with Virgil Clotfelter officiating.
Family and friends may call from noon until service time Tuesday. Burial will be at Garland Brook Cemetery.
Memorial contributions may be made to Garden City Church of Christ.
