George "Sonny" Gratzer 05/05/40 - 12/07/16
Greetings to all,
It is with a very heavy heart that I've pirated my dad's email list from two of his forwards to notify those of you who are unaware of his passing that Sonny Gratzer passed away early Wednesday morning at his home. He was discovered by a construction worker who was repairing the flood damage to his house.
I apologize that I am unable to call each of you personally; I am deaf and don't use the phone. My ex-husband, Glenn, began calling some of you and started the call chain; however, I wanted to ensure that as many of my dad's friends or acquaintances are reached in a more personal way than by reading a newspaper obituary, and I fear that even this email is insufficient to avoid missing someone.
My dad's obituary will be published this week in both the Missoulian and the Butte Montana Standard. We are tentatively hoping to have a viewing on Wednesday evening and a full military funeral on Friday.
Please forgive me if you have received this email more than once, and please know that my dad was very thankful for his many beloved friends and family members.
Mail may be sent to Sonny's family at 106 Rolling Green Pl, Missoula, MT 59803. Many thanks for your kind thoughts.
