He was united in marriage to Deidre “Dee” Couch on November 14, 1970 at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church; she preceded him in death on September 13, 2011. Sonny has worked alongside his dad in the family wrecker business, Henline Heavy Tow and Retrieve, since he was a month old.

He was a statewide heavy-duty rescue and extrication instructor for many years and was an active supporter of the Huntington 4-H Robotics program. He was also a supporter of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, and in recent years, he attended Pleasant Chapel United Methodist Church. In his free time, Sonny enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, family and friends, woodworking, attending antique truck and tractor shows, making the baked beans for the annual tenderloin supper, and telling jokes and stories to anyone that would listen. Survivors include his son, Harley (Ann) Henline III, grandchildren Hannah and Harley IV, and many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, wife, and his brother, Donald Henline.
