WHITEHALL — Norman Houston “Sonny” MacLeod, 67, of Whitehall, NY, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, April 6, 2012, at Glens Falls Hospital.

Sonny was born on Aug. 31, 1944, in Princeton, Maine, the son of the late Norman H. MacLeod Sr. and Edith (Libby) MacLeod.

He was a graduate of Whitehall High School.

Sonny was married to Bonnie Lee (Witherbee) MacLeod of Ticonderoga who passed away on March 18, 2007, after 34 years of marriage.

They enjoyed fishing, and traveling to Big Lake, Maine, where they spent many summer vacations with their children. Also, they enjoyed hunting in the Adirondacks, golfing with his son Scott and wife Christina, and camping during the summer in Crown Point (Port Henry).

Sonny retired in 2008 from International Paper Mill in Ticonderoga after being employed with the company for more than 45 years.

During the summer months, he traveled many miles on his Harley Davidson, touring the countryside with his son Ian and friends Ted and Shirley LaRose. His greatest joy was to spend time babysitting and helping to raise his grandchildren.

Sonny is survived by his children, Scott M. Grupe and his wife Christina of Arlington, Vt., Kevin F. Austin and his wife Jennifer of Saratoga, NY, Brian MacLeod and his wife Kim of Suwanee, Ga., and Ian MacLeod of Whitehall.

He is also survived by his mother-in-law, Sheila M. Witherbee of Ticonderoga, his five grandchildren, Nicholas Grupe and Claire Grupe of Arlington, Vt., Alexis, Aidan  and Connor MacLeod of Whitehall.  He is also survived by a loving sister, Donna Jean MacLeod of Whitehall, his brother-in- law, sisters-in-law and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Services were conducted at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 12, 2012, at the Michael G. Angiolillo Funeral Home, 210 Broadway, Whitehall, NY, with the Rev. Michael Lemery officiating.

A reception will follow at the home of his sister following the services at 2303 Upper Turnpike Road, Whitehall.

Friends may call on the family from 5:30 pm until the time of the services on Thursday.

The family suggests that in lieu of flowers, donations in his memory be made to the New Meadow Autistic Center, 15 Burke Drive, Queensbury, NY 12804.
