Then, he again assumed the duty of council chairmanship in the commerce and industrial chambers under TOBB system. Sonmez was also Bursa member of the parliament for one term.

We are very sad, there are many things to be mentioned. Ali Osman Sonmez was not just an industrialist and businessman, but also a model to be taken as example. He had such endless energy and enthusiasm for industry and business, you would feel how to take pleasure from working even when you talked with him. Because, working with him was a pleasure by itself. His contributions are already obvious. He had many great aspects other than his businessman character. As you know, he was the Member of Parliament for one term and he was also benevolent. He gave enormous support to healthcare, he built a hospital. I believe that he also offered help in aspects that were never revealed to us. He made major contribution to education. As well as the university, he built several schools. I believe that this is a great loss for not only Bursa but also Turkey. For sure, the life is not eternal for anyone. The places of such successful people cannot be replaced upon such great losses. I offer my condolences to Turkey, industrialists and members of the chamber. I am very sad on behalf of myself anf my chamber upon having lost such a visionary pioneer.

Such a curious coincidence that we were born on the same day with my beloved boss Ali Osman Sonmez, I have always been proud to work for him and was honored by himself. I have always been and will always be proud for this. 10 years. We were always the boss and assistant to first celebrate each other. Now another November is oncoming. My beloved boss has passed away today with what he has produced in life, but I believe that he will be back with memories in every 6th of November. The life is consumed in what it has produced as it reproduces.
One day we will all come to an end but still, Mr. Ali Osman, I believe it way too early. Now, even the walls in the buildings that you have made are silent. They may have been stone, but you gave life to them. Your presence made us smile and think. Your photos on the walls are as if an intense cloud of sorrow intertwined with the silent screams. This room, which was enlivened with your arrival, will never be the same. Ali Osman Sonmez, who grew and made us grow increasingly with what he had produced exists no more.
This place was a heaven with you. May you rest in heaven as well. You have proven the reason why anyone comes to this world with all of your works, all of the employment opportunities you have provided and what you have given rather than what you have taken. Thank you. The prayers are what we can give to you, they will breeze from our hearts with the leaves of autumn…
