The Carwash Industry Lost a Great Man

Entering the carwash industry in 1949, Sonny Fazio discovered his passion and spent each day of his career pushing himself and inspiring everyone he encountered to do more, to be more and to try harder. We learned Fazio, founder of Sonny’s, The Car Wash Factory, recently passed. The industry is surely saddened with the loss of this pioneer and grateful for the lessons he imparted. Mr. Sonny inspired all of us to become better, and his legacy will live on. His energy, enthusiasm and love so freely given will be deeply missed.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at or by phone at 800.805.5856. At Sonny’s request, a private memorial service and funeral will be held for immediate family members only.
