Danny Frank Sonderleiter

Des Moines, IA - Danny Sonderleiter, 68 years old, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Thursday, August 2, 2018. Dan was born January 5, 1950, in Des Moines, Iowa. He was the son of Harry "Babe" Sonderleiter and Mary Ellen Bennett.

Visitation will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., followed by a memorial service at 1 p.m., Saturday, August 18, 2018, at Eastside Church of the Nazarene, 1451 E 25th Street, Des Moines, Iowa.

Dan was employed at Sondy's Lounge on University, a family owned and operated business, from high school until January 1985, when he suffered a gunshot wound, leaving him partially paralyzed. Dan is remembered for his sincere generosity, his genuine love of people, and most importantly, his steadfast walk with the Lord. Dan loved spending time with people and seldom left home without being greeted by a friend. He was a dedicated father, supporting his children throughout his life, seldom missing a school event with his children.

He is survived by his son, Sean Sonderleiter (wife Candace) of Conroe, Texas; daughters, Laura Sonderleiter of New Virginia, Iowa and Mary Ellen Sonderleiter of Des Moines, Iowa; seven grandchildren: Alyssa, Brooklyn, Briana, Jaelynn, London, Sawyer, and Atlas; sister, Debbie Johnson (husband Bob) of Bondurant, Iowa; and many other extended family and friends.

Dan was preceded in death by his parents, Harry "Babe" and Mary Ellen Sonderleiter, and his daughter, Dana Kristine.

Memorial contributions may be directed to the family for a future designation.
