Walter C. “Sonny” Librock, age 85, entered into rest July 5, 2019 in Eastern Niagara Hospital surrounded by his loving family.
Sonny was born July 24, 1933 in North Tonawanda to Carlton and Beulah (Walter) Librock and in 1956 moved to Gasport, where he would own and operate a dairy farm until 2002.
After selling his dairy cows, Sonny started Librock Black Angus Beef Farm. He fostered relationships with many people as he would sell his products at many local farmers' markets, schools, restaurants and businesses and stress the importance of family and how working together in a family business underscored the bonds of love and support that only a family can provide.
