Obituary

William “Sonny” Staples, Jr., 79, of Damariscotta, passed away peacefully on February 8, 2021 at Cove’s Edge after a brief illness.

Sonny was born in Thomaston, Maine on September 3, 1941 to William E. Staples and Dorothy B. (Weaver) Staples. He grew up and attended local schools in Friendship.

He was employed at Hannaford’s in Rockland for many years. He lived in Washington for at least 30 years and moved to Damariscotta about 3 years ago.

Sonny loved family gatherings, holidays and country music and Elvis. He was well respected for his honesty and he was a hard worker. He will be remembered for his honesty, always being jolly, loving, compassionate and caring. He always had a warmth for people.

Sonny is predeceased by his wife of 28 years, Arlene, his parents, and his brother Jeff Benner. He is survived by sisters Veronica L. Carter-Andersen of Cornville, Marlene Burnham of Waldoboro and Deborah Miller of Waldoboro; brothers Norman Benner of Friendship, Ronald Benner of Wells and Gary Benner of Friendship, as well as several nieces and nephews.

A graveside service will be held at a later date for Sonny and his wife Arlene at the Lakeview Cemetery in Union.
