  1. It’s good to learn my old friend Ralph Hubert “Sonny” Barger is still alive. I’ve been hearing to many roomers about him dying or dead let alone about him still being alive and in hiding even though the last I had seen him was the year he moved from Oakland CA to Arizona where he’s at not. I’ve been seeking out the truth since I first heard all these roomers. Learning that he’s still a live and doing what he does best is good news to me. I’m keeping him and hes family in my prayers daily like I’ve been since we first met in the late 1950’s to early/mid 1960’s. May he be blessed and stay safe during the covid-19 epidemic. My distant cousin Alicia C Silvas aka shorty also has been worried about him as well do to the roomers we’ve been hearing.

  2. Hey Sonny it’s Gloria I helped train the respiratory therapist at banner hospital how to car for someone who had the same cancer as you and my mom . Thank you for all you do and for watching over my daughter Natasha when she was little. God bless you.

  3. Hi there. I haven’t heard anything about a daughter? I think there is a very good chance that I could have a matching DNA. Please have someone contact me. Sincerely Andrea
    PS. Thanks for that introduction dad, I remembered you! I love you Dad!

    Stay safe and well.
    Be blessed,
    Madonna (Tomlin) Borromeo
    Jim Tomlin was my brother he hung out with you in the upstairs apartment that was in Oakland…I was there only once.

  7. Sonny, my grandfather started the HA Bomber Group in the 2nd World War and The HA motorcycle group in The US after the war. Many people believe you to be the founding father of The HA’s and that is disrespectful to my grandfather and everyone of us of his lineage and also all the other brothers who flew with my grandfather and rode with him after the war, and those who were part of the war effort but did not ride in The HA’s on the ground.
    Some of those men started up chapters in different country’s were they came from and went back to after the war.
    I honor and respect you for the type of man you are but you are not showing any respect for those that were before you and there is no honor or respect in that whatsoever.
    You started the California Chapter. That is a Chapter that was added to those other Chapters that already existed.
    You should at the very least show some respect for the founding father and voice that publicly to set the record straight.
    My grandfather set the foundation of The HA’s prior to you even being born, and prior to the motorcycle group being born.
    The HA’s existed before you were old enough, or rather, big enough to even ride a motorcycle.
    You are the founding father of the California Chapter, not the founding father of The HA’s.
    Show some respect for those that have gone before you and regain your honor and your place among the Veterans that are your brothers still today even though they are most likely all dead unless they know the secret of becoming a young and vibrant Man again.
    That path is available to everyone and I am the gate keeper. If you want your youth back then honor my grandfather and stand up with me to finish the mission that The HA’s joined together to do in the first place.
    Too make a stand against the iniquities of the selfish, and the tyranny of evil men the selfish control…
