Charles Kevin “Sonny” Cohen, 58, of White Oak, died Friday, March 18, 2016. He was born in McKeesport on March 21, 1957. He was a man with many names; known to family as Kevin, and known to friends as Sonny. He was the devoted husband of Susan Tanney Cohen for 24 years; cherished father of Joseph T. and Mary F. Cohen, of White Oak; beloved brother of Loretta (John) Fisher, of Whitehall, and JoAnn (Dave) Rhome, of Greensburg; and dear uncle to Leah (Brandon), Hannah (Sam) and Katie (Markus). Sonny was a member of the Sons of the American Legion, General Smedley D. Butler Post 701, for more than 10 years. He very much enjoyed bowling and was the president of the Oddballs Bowling League. For a time, Sonny also coached for the White Oak Juniors at White Oak Bowl. He loved riding his 2008 Vulcan, 2000cc, Classic LT. He and Susan or one of the kids could be seen around town or out in the country on a warm summer day. His greatest passion, though, was his career as a professional truck driver. In his younger years, he was an over-the-road steel hauler, traveling the East Coast. Due to his heart disease, he began to drive locally and then eventually became an instructor. Throughout the years, he has received letters and cards from former students thanking him for changing the course of their lives. Because of Sonny, they now had the ability to adequately support their families with their new career. Sonny was a kind and gentle soul. He truly saw the face of God in everyone and treated them as such. He will be deeply missed by many, especially his family. He was our rock.
