Sonny James Davison
02/19/2021

Washington, Utah. Sonny James Davison, 45, passed away Friday, February 19, 2021. He was born March 13, 1975 in Ogden, Utah to Michael Dennis and Joyce Cole Davison. He married Lori Ann Ralston on December 29, 2005.

Sonny was raised in Roy, Utah. He was the youngest of nine kids and he was spoiled and adored by them all. He attended Grade school in Roy and Graduated from Roy High School. Throughout his high school years Sonny played football and soccer. Sonny was very put together and organized, earning him “Best Dressed” of Roy High. Following graduation, the ski bum phase of Sonny’s life started. He moved to Park City and worked as a lift operator. He spent as much time as he could shredding the slopes and taking full advantage of Utah’s “Greatest Snow on Earth”. In 1996 Sonny moved to St. George, Utah to attend Dixie College. He instantly fell in love with the year-round good weather and Golfing. This is also where he met his many lifelong friends and his soul mate Lori Ann Ralston. Sonny graduated Dixie State College with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration.

Prior to his graduation from Dixie, Sonny started working for his brother-in-law and mentor, Wayne Carlos at AAA Bail Bonds. This was a profession Sonny really enjoyed. It provided him a flexible schedule that allowed for his favorite past time, being a dad! Sonny loved his family more than anything in this world and his boys were the light of his life.

Sonny had an immense love of all sports. He excelled in soccer and had the opportunity to play in Germany. He played football, basketball, horseshoes, darts, and ping pong, (which earned him a medal in the Huntsman Summer Games). Sonny skied and boated. Golf, however, was his most favorite. He spent many hours on the golf course with friends and family. The time spent on the course with his boys was the most special and provided many teaching moments. Sonny was so proud of their success on and off the golf course. Recently Sonny and Ryder went on a deep-sea fishing trip with Uncle John and this was another sport they immediately fell in love with and had plans to continue.

Sonny had amazing blue eyes that sparkled when he smiled and had an infectious laugh. He was named appropriately because he brought sunshine and a positive attitude everywhere, he went.

Most of all Sonny was accepting and supportive. He was a hub, and his home was always open. He was a father figure to many and often gave advice and council to those he cared for. He wanted the best for all those around him.

Sonny is survived by his loving wife, Lori Ann Davison, Sons: Ashton and Ryder Davison, Parents: Mike and Joyce Davison; Siblings: Lonnie Logan, Denise Carlos (Wayne), Pamela Christensen (Chris), Michael Lloyd Davison, Jacky Bobo (Cindy), Annette Howard (Roger), Deann Slade (Todd), and John Bobo (Felice). Sonny is also survived by his Mother-in-law, Chris Ralston, Father-in-law, Steve Ralston (Lisa) and extended family and friends too numerous to name.

  8. I’m saddened to hear of the passing of Sonny. We grew up together from Kindergarten through graduation. Some of my fondest memories growing up were playing backyard football with Sonny and the rest of the Roy Boys at Roy Park. Sonny was always very fun to be around and I admired his ability to dress for success. It was a walkaway vote for best dressed at Roy High in 1993, no one else came close. The one thing I will always remember about Sonny;
    If you knew Sonny, you loved him.
    RIP

  15. I just wanted to say to Sonny family I am truly sorry for your loss. Me, Sonny and Mark we’re always together either playing baseball, football or soccer or just hanging out like kids do. I moved to Houston TX when I was 12 years old and when I would come back to see family I made that effort to see Sonny and Mark. I just recently moved back to ogden Utah and just heard about Sonny I am so sad he was such a great friend. Thanks Sonny for all those great times me, you, and mark had running around in the neighborhood just being kids and enjoying life. Rest in peace my friend I will see you again. Carlos Griggs
