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.

The Johnson High alumni will miss Sonny very much.
