My husband & Adam & Mandi’s dad, Dallas Sundermeyer, went to heaven on October 3rd, 2012. He was born September 17th, 1951 in Braham hospital, which is now the Elms Apartments. He grew up in Stanchfield working hard on the family farm. He attended Maple Ridge Evan. Free Church where he went to Sunday school, was baptized and confirmed. Dallas, his brother Craig & his sister Cheryl, loved to ride bike around the neighborhood with Audrey Larson, Linda Hollis & Glen Carlson. He graduated from Braham High School in 1969. His loves included farming (Allis Chalmers tractors always), spoiling his dog, Lillea, & Mandi’s four pygmy goats, Ginger, Linus, Lucy & Charlie (his pet name was Petie for Charlie). He loved visiting and drinking coffee with family & friends. His family was very much in his heart & he had to know where they were at all times, using his cell phone A LOT!
He married Jan (Janet Lindgren) on October 12th, 1974 at Stanchfield Baptist Church. We lived just north of the church renting a home until they built their home on the family farm in 1975/1976. We were blessed with a son, Adam Dallas, on January 17th, 1978. Dallas was working on the family farm until his mother sold the machinery & animals and moved into Braham. We moved to St. Boni where he worked on the farm for Haward & Evelyn Wendt. We were there only a short three months when Dallas cracked his fourth lumbar lifting a barn cleaner. We moved back to our house in Stanchfield and he found a job hauling milk for MidAmerica through Tim Peterson. We were blessed again with a little girl, Mandi Jan, born on July 6, 1979. That August, Dallas was in the Cambridge hospital because of his cracked lumbar. In September he applied for a job at Isanti Ready Mix working for Dave & Jerry Laase as a cement truck driver & the rest is history. He worked there for 33 years 11 months. Jerry & Dallas were going to retire together and never have to work again.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Ray & Ethel (Leaf) Sundermeyer, parents-in-law Clayton & Marjorie (Thunstrom) Lindgren & nephew Patrick Lindgren.
He is survived by his wife, Jan (Lindgren), his children, Adam, Crystal & Mandi, his grandchildren, Alayna, Matthew, Brinly, Daelynn Sundermeyer & Paige Pass, his brother, Craig Sundermeyer & wife Sandy of Stanchfield, his sister Cheryl Leaf & husband Dean of Prior Lake, his nephews, Ray Sundermeyer, Chad Leaf, Peter Leaf, Todd Lindgren, Brandt Lindgren, his nieces, Cara Lindgren, Jenni Davis, Nancy (Davis) Kavanagh, Chelly Sundermeyer, Bridget (Sundermeyer) Yotter, Becky (Leaf) Levenhagen, their spouses & children, his brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law Dave & Julie (Lindgren) Davis, Gary & Cheryl Lindgren, Steve & Mary Lindgren, step-mother-in-law Lois Lindgren, great nephews & nieces, cousins, other relatives & many friends.
