Sonny was born on August 25, 1942, and raised in West Scranton by the late Fleur and Rose (Cimino) Musto. Sonny was a graduate of West Scranton High School, Class of 1960, before attending the University of Scranton. He met, fell in love with, and married his wife Marion M.

They enjoyed 33 years of marriage until Marions passing on September 22, 1995.
He worked for several area factories, beginning with Brooks Manufacturing in Old Forge, and retired from Compression Polymers of Moosic.

He would do whatever it took to ensure his family was comfortable. Sonny had a passion for art and enjoyed drawing and painting, leaving behind countless paintings to be treasured by his family.

Sonny lived life on his own terms and is now at peace, reunited with his beloved wife of 33 years and he will be deeply missed by his loved ones.
