Newton "Sonny" Hillmer - Class Of 1962

Newton Sonny Hillmer

Newton Earle "Sonny" Hillmer
1943 - 1980


Newton Earle, also known as Sonny was born on September 23, 1943 in Michigan. Sonny died on January 20, 1980 in Martinez, California at the age of 36.

Sonny graduated at Johnson High in 1962; he was a great football player, a big guy and a member of the JHS Varsity Football, Basketball and Letterman Club. Our yearbook shows that Sonny was from Michigan, but I'm not sure of his hometown.

I'm sorry, but I don't have any information on Sonny. If you could provide some details, please contact Kay Weaver.

A copy of the obituary would be very helpful, since it would contain information, such as:

  • Hometown
  • Names, addresses & emails to send condolences

The Johnson High alumni will miss Sonny very much.
