Sonny at the Corvette Museum

 The passing of our life-long friend, Sonny Boteler, a few days ago, hit us all hard at Beltsville Shell.

Remembering Sonny

So Canon and I decided to dedicate a National Corvette Museum Brick in Sonny's memory.

The brick will be placed in the walkway outside the Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, leading to the entrance.

The brick lettering (they only allow 13 letters/spaces per line, 3 lines maximum) will read:

Sonny Boteler

Mr Beltsville

1966 Corvette

    Hey Cary and family, thanks for the recognition for Sonny at the Corvette Museum. Sonny and really almost everyone are family members of 1965 HPHS, Beltsville, and everything related to living our lives in Beltsville and beyond. I am very grateful to have lived in Beltsville and known Sonny as a friend for all those years. Words cannot really express what everything was like growing up in Beltsville . Phil Marcus
