Kansas Senator Jerry Moran Pays Tribute to Sonny Zetmeir
U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) spoke on the Senate floor on Wednesday in tribute to Emil F. “Sonny” Zetmeir of Parsons, Kansas, who passed away in September 2013. Sonny Zetmeir, owner of Grandview Products, grew the family-owned cabimet manuraturing company from a local small business with 24 employees to a $50 million dollar company with 430 employees shipping cabinets from coast to coast. Sen. Moran believes Sonny’s legacy as a businessman is rivaled only by his commitment to community and improving the lives of those around him.
“Sonny was a person with such optimism and so engaged in improving the lives of others,” Sen. Moran said “The community of Parsons lost one of their greatest champions when Sonny Zetmeir passed away. His humor and selflessness truly made an indelible impact on the community.”
