El Paso Army veteran marries bride while skydiving

Positively El Paso

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — An Army veteran in El Paso married the love of his life while parachuting thousands of feet in the air over the Sun City last Wednesday.

Sunnydale Hyde says he met his wife Ramona after moving to El Paso. He served 20 years in the U.S. Army before retiring. While in the Army, he spent time on the U.S. Army Special Operations Command Parachute Team and was knighted as a Golden Knight in 2015.

He currently runs the Wings Over the World Alliance which helps bring organizations together for humanitarian work. He also works as a parachute demonstrator and travels across the country jumping into stadiums.

He tells KTSM that he sees how parachuting helps heal PTSD, anxiety, and depression. “All that I do is bent toward making the world better through healing in the sky,” he said.

Sunnydale’s wife, Ramona is a nurse at a local hospital. He says her love for healing people is one of the reasons they are such a perfect match.

Sunnydale tells KTSM that it just made sense to do a parachute jump for his wedding.
