Obituary Condolences

Lawrence Harold SUND Age 63, passed away Jan. 8, 2009. Larry was born on May 25, 1945 in Shelton, Washington but has lived in the greater Seattle area for over 35 years. One of 5 children, Larry grew up on the Sund family homestead property on Hood Canal, just north of Hoodsport, WA. Larry's father was an outdoorsman and Larry inherited this love of all things outdoor. After graduating from Shelton High School in 1963, Larry studied geography at Western Washington University and graduated in 1967. After 2 years in the Navy where he was stationed in Honolulu, Larry moved back to the greater Seattle area in 1970 and was never to leave. He worked for Patterson Dental for 38 years, forging great relationships with the dentists and dental offices he served. He was hard working, loyal, and extremely funny. To have met Larry was to have been blessed by a great man. Larry met his wife Cheryl Hungate at a dental convention in 1980 and they have been together ever since. Cheryl and Larry have spent the last 3 decades skiing and diving together, travelling the globe, sailing in their sailboat, and sharing the journey of life together. They were best friends and Larry loved nothing more than seeing the world with her. Larry was also a passionate hunter and fisherman, and each year was marked with annual steelhead trips to Forks, Elk hunts to Idaho, deer hunts near Twisp, WA and numerous other adventures into nature. Larry is survived by his wife of 28 years Cheryl Hungate Sund, his mother Mary Jane Sund of Hoodsport, WA, his sister Sharon Sund of Hoodsport, WA; brother David Sund of Hoodsport, WA; sister Sylvia Wilson of Merchantville, NJ; and sister Sheryl Endicott of Hoodsport, WA and numerous nieces and nephews.
