A world without Sonny's infectious smile and happy laugh will be tough to deal with, but he will live on in all our hearts. My sympathies to his friends and family. RIP, Mr. Elliot. You made a difference in the lives of so many former and current Detoiters.

He's gone to the Great Engadengadine in the Sky! We'll miss him!

I met him once years ago. He was as friendly in person as he seemed on the weather. He stirred my interest in the weather, and am still interested today. He will be sadly missed. Thanks for the memories.

David & Dorothy Damm11/17/2012

We are honored to be one of the first to say how wonderful Sonny was. From childhood to Senior citizens we always enjoyed hearing his great weather report with his witty sayings. I'm sure he is close to all his many fans who went before him. You will always be remembered. Your combining words will remain in our memories forever.

A wonderful person and a Lovely Lovely Man.

Ed Kutz11/17/2012

I remember watching Sonny do the weather every night when I was growing up. No matter what had gone wrong that day, listening to Sonny and his wisecracks always seemed to make things right. We'll all miss you, Sonny, more than you'll ever know. God bless you and your family!

Kathleen Kelly11/17/2012

Sonny Elliot was "the genuine article" and loved people, his career, and first and foremost, his wife, Annette. God bless you and keep you, Sonny. You brought joy to so very many people!

Terry Edwards11/17/2012

Sonny was such an avid pilot and friend for many years. As a founding member of the CAC (Community Aviation Council) his presence at the meetings was always a highlight. What a joy to have known a "celebrity" who was so kind and down to earth. Happy Flying in the great sky Sonny, WE'll miss you.

I grew up watching him on TV and had the pleasure of meeting him and his wife in the early 2000's while working at HCR West Bloomfield. What a wonderful, real person! He will be greatly missed! He will be greatly thoughts and prayers are with his wife, family, and friends.

Felicia Szczepanski11/18/2012

I have such fond memories of Sonny Eliot and his wonderful , wacky weather forecasts! I totally loved watching Sonny Eliot "At The Zoo". But I must say that my FAVORITE memory is Sonny and his beautiful wife Annette, hosting the Downtown Detroit Hudson Thanksgiving Day Parade! Growing up in Detroit, that was such a magical time, and my sister and I could not wait to watch the Parade with Sonny and Annette. My deepest sympathy to Annette, and family. I am so thankful for the wonderful memories that I have of Sonny Eliot, and I hope that happy memories will be a source of comfort to you and your family.

Nancy Edwards11/19/2012

Somehow the weather report was always more believable and certainly more fun before the complexities of today's reports. I grew up knowing Sonny was our weather guy. NEVER to be forgotten for all he has done for his city.
