Harry A. ‘Sonny’ Hing
Harry A. “Sonny” Hing, 70, of Gloversville, N.Y., passed away peacefully at his residence in New Port Richey, Fla., on Saturday, December 14, 2013, surrounded by his loving children.
He was born November 20, 1943, in Gloversville, N.Y., the son of the late Rhoda Whitman and Harry Yea Hing. He graduated from Gloversville High School in 1960 and served honorably in the United States Air Force from 1960-1964 during the Korean War Conflict, Vietnam War and the Cuban Missile Crisis. Mr. Hing worked for 31 years as plant manager for Keymark Corp (1967-1998).
His constitution and vitality for life had a resilience all its own! He pursued his passion for golf regularly and for 33 years was an original member of the Bush Golf League 1980-2013. Thursdays were spent happily with his best friends. For 33 years he was a member of the Four Mondays Bowling League at Perry Lanes. His retirement was enjoyed spending precious time with his “Munchkins” Ellery and Joseph, traveling to his father’s birthplace in Canton, China, Hawaii, cruising the Carribbean with friends, being a snowbird and on his favorite greens of the golf course!
