His favorite activities included family trips, working on home improvement projects, and daily walks with his dogs.
He is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Bobbie; his devoted children Steven Sundrud, Janet Sundrud, and Joanne Powers (Brian); and his siblings Ron Sundrud (Grace), Jean Fehl (Dave), and Annette Porter (Steve).
