Wilbert H. Hatch Jr. (Sonny)


Wilbert H. Hatch Jr. (Sonny), 76, was called home to the Lord on Nov. 7, 2020.

Sonny was born in Belfast, on April 25, 1944, to Wilbert H. Hatch Sr. and Ada Mae (Frazier) Hatch.

Sonny was a humble, kindhearted soul who loved life, friends and family. He was a social butterfly who made friends wherever he went.

When he was born, he had a defect that compromised his ability to learn in school. In his younger years, Sonny was a hard worker, and, despite his disability, he learned to play the guitar, which he really enjoyed.

Sonny was predeceased by his parents and four half-siblings from his mother’s previous marriage. He is survived by one brother, Robert Hatch, and his wife, Sophie, of Sedgwick, one nephew, Ed Hatch, and his wife, Crystal, of Orland, one niece, Frannie Bragdon, and her husband, Mike, of Bucksport and five great-nephews and nieces, Cole and Camden Hatch, Aiden Day, Naomi Day and Grace Hatch.

At Sonny’s request, there will be no formal service but a small family gathering, at a date as yet undetermined.
