Jerrold Thomas Sundt
SAVANNAH, Ga. - On November 17, 2017, Jerry Sundt's infectious laugh went silent. Born Jerrold Thomas Sundt on July 8, 1934 in Sleepy Eye, Minnesota, Jerry was the second of Horace and Genevieve Sundt's four children. His siblings, Richard (Marie France) Sundt, Mary Johnson, and Robert (Barb) Sundt, all survive him. He attended Marquette University, served in the U.S. Navy for four years, then returned to civilian life and a career in broadcast TV, video and as a business owner.
In one of the great chance encounters of all time, he met Mary Joan (McKenna) Sundt during his freshman year at Marquette. They were wed in 1955 and had five children: Terry (Debbie) Sundt; Mary Kay (Don) McLemore; Greg (Marcia) Sundt; Tim (Marylouise) Sundt; and Dan (Chris) Sundt. Seventeen grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren complete Jerry's legacy. He was a lifelong Catholic whose faith was one of his most significant and enduring attributes.
Jerry and Joan enjoyed nearly 60 years of marriage, living in several parts of the country, the longest stay being in Farmington, MI and the most recent in Aiken, SC. They made scores of friends everywhere they lived, many of whom remained an important part of their lives for decades. After Joan's death in June 2015, Jerry moved to Savannah Square in Savannah, GA, where he continued to entertain others with his wonderful sense of humor. No matter the location, part of him was always connected to Lambeau Field and its denizens, the Green Bay Packers. The last game he saw ended with the Packers beating the Bears. In addition to football, Jerry enjoyed golf, travel, and politics.
Jerry will be remembered as a kind, thoughtful, warm and fair man.
A celebration of his life will be held at Christ the Redeemer Catholic Church in Lake Orion, Michigan on December 21 at 1:30 PM.
