He is survived by his wife of fifteen years, Sharon Vaughn; one brother, Gary Vaughn and wife Evelyn of Paducah, Kentucky; three children, Chad Vaughn and wife Stacy of Smithland, Kentucky, Ronica Woodward and husband Darren of Ledbetter, Kentucky, Jennifer Johnson and husband Toby of Smithland, Kentucky.

Sonny was born in Dyersburg, Tennessee, August 30, 1946. He graduated from Reidland High School then attended Paducah Community College. He later owned and operated Ledbetter Plumbing as a Master Plumber. He was a member of Southland Baptist Temple of Paducah, Kentucky and of Masonic Lodge #952 of Ledbetter. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, his daily lunches at Kountry Kastle, and attending car shows in his 1929 Ford with all of his street rod community. He loved his family, friends, and his precious dog, Bella Boo. It's not goodbye; anyone that knew Sonny can hear him say "If you need me; call me," and he was never without a joke to tell to make you laugh.
