Sonny James Fongemie

Sonny James Fongemie, 46, of Knox, NY passed away unexpectedly on December 6, 2021, at home. Born July 9, 1975, in Edmundston, New Brunswick, Canada, he leaves behind his father Joseph V. Cyr, his brothers Richard Fongemie and Dennis Cyr and sister Denise Kennedy. Sonny was the son of the late Claire F. Cyr.
Sonny loved to camp in Vermont at every chance he could and in the winter loved to ice fish. He also loved his nieces and nephews making them laugh from his antics but he also had many friends who he thought were his extended family. He would give his shirt off his back or drop what he was doing to help his friends. In addition, Sonny was an excellent cook and loved to cater events.
Sonny served in the United States Marine Corps and was honorably discharged. He worked Gary’s Landscaping in Connecticut for 17 years and recently Knox Highway Department starting a new life in New York.

Should friends or relatives desire, contributions in his memory, can be made to American Legion Riders, Post 977 PO Box 461 Altamont Blvd and/or Boyd Hilton VFW Post 7062 PO Box 505 Mill St. Altamont NY 12009


My thoughts go out to Sonny's family. Years back, Sonny, George Boian and I would go out and have a lot of fun together. Sonny was a comedian in his own right by the way he could always make us laugh. From one Devil Dog to another, Semper Fi Sonny. Give 'em hell up in Valhalla.
