Roy Seldon Harper Jr. “Sonny” of Oshkosh, Wisconsin passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Friday, June 14, 2019. He was born in Florida on July 28, 1959 to the late Roy S. and Peggy (Beam) Harper. On July 6, 1991 he married Monica Riley. Sonny loved his family and loved to spend time with them. He was a hard working, caring, compassionate, and loving man. He would go out of his way to help anyone in need. He humored us with his “Dad” jokes and was always up for a game of darts or shuffleboard. Riding his Harley and hanging out with his family and friends were his favorite things to do.
