Sonny Won Fogg, 47, of Dunbar, departed this life on Wednesday, February 24, 2021, at CAMC Memorial Hospital after a long, courageous battle with COVID-19.
Sonny is survived by his beloved wife, Amy Fogg. Sonny and Amy met in 2016, fell in love, and spent four years building a wonderful life together. Married on August 15, 2020, their love was genuine, beautiful, and centered in their Christian faith. Sonny often reminded Amy of God’s promises and believed their relationship was a living testament of God’s promise to “restore what’s been broken and change it into something amazing (Joel 2:25).
Also surviving are Sonny’s parents: Carson and Candy (Hwang) Fogg of Buckhannon; children: Michaela and Bronson Fogg of Jacksonville, FL and Sophia Fogg of Smithfield, VA; stepchildren: Maclaya Hill of Parkersburg and Cade Hill of Dunbar; brother, Dr. Jason Fogg (Theresa) and nephews: Colson, Makson, and Quinson and niece, Carys Fogg, all of Lexington, KY.
Sonny was a member of South Charleston First Church of the Nazarene where he and Amy spent some of their best moments worshipping God and serving together in ministry. Sonny also served as a leader in local Celebrate Recovery ministries. Sonny’s love for people was profound and mirrored his relationship with Jesus Christ.
A graduate of Buckhannon-Upshur High school (class of 1991), Sonny went on to study at West Virginia University before entering the U.S. Army Reserves. His career of 22 years was with Telecommunications of WV/Frontier Communications where he worked as a cable splicing technician and central office technician.
Sonny loved life. He enjoyed WVU football, camping, hiking, fishing, and riding motorcycles. His favorite times were spent traveling with his wife and kids.
Sonny’s vibrant and impactful life was cut short by the tragedy of COVID-19. Amy wishes to express special thanks to J.W. Martin, Critical Care Nurse at CAMC Memorial Hospital, who provided extraordinary medical care for the 38 days Sonny received aggressive life-saving treatments. Additionally, Amy extends heartfelt thanks to Pastors Kent Estep, Kyle Stotts, and Jennie Miller for assisting during this time of loss; as well as to the SCNAZ Prayer Team for their constant prayer support over the past two months.
