Dr. Eric Joseph Sunderman passed away peacefully into the arms of his Lord and Savior on Monday, December 14, 2020.  He was 80 years old and lived an extraordinary life.  Ric was born on November 29, 1940 in St. Louis, Missouri to his parents Dr. Elmer and Jeanne Sunderman.

He grew up in Evansville, Indiana, then went on to join the Navy.  He attended Indiana University, where he met Joyce Faggioni. They were married in 1969 and had 2 children, Cezanne and Erinn.  After practicing as a general dentist in the Navy, he furthered his education at Tufts College in Boston, MA and received his degree in Endodontics. Ric continued his service in the Navy for a total of 22 years and he and his family lived in many incredible places. They finally settled in Winter Spring, FL where he retired from the Navy and began his private practice.  They became very involved with Destiny Church.  Joyce sadly passed away in January of 2003.  Within a year Ric met and happily married Charlotte “Punky” Frailey.  They were married for 17 years and loved to travel and spend time with their many friends and family.  Ric never knew a stranger and was truly loved by everyone. His smile lit up a room and his strong, warm hugs were welcomed by everyone. He loved to dance, he loved the mountains and he loved red cardinals in the snow.  His priorities were God, family and country. He is survived by his wife, Charlotte Sunderman, his three sisters, Candy Shetler, Kris Slaughter, Lisa Martin, his children, Cezanne Philips and Erinn Sunderman, and his many treasured grandchildren and great grandchildren. The family will hold a private celebration of his life but will broadcast it live thru College Park United Methodist’s website for all to see.  To celebrate his life, please go to https://youtube.com/c/CollegeParkUnited  on Saturday January 9th at 10:00 am and click on the link for the service

    Ric Sunderman was fully surrendered to his Lord, a soldier, in the sense that he fought for and defended truth and justice, and most of all, he was a servant to all who had the honor of knowing this humble man. May God bless his wife, Punky, and all of Ric's family.

    I loved this man!
    A true gentleman, and a gentle man.
    It's difficult to know I will not experience another Ric hug for a while, but look forward to a reunion someday.

    Raymond and I had the privilege of meeting Ric and Olivia(Punky) a few years ago during a Chavda Ministries Conference. We immediately knew we wanted to be close to these two amazing people. Ric always welcomed you with this contagious smile. We will forever love and hold him close in our hearts. Raymond and Linda Vega

    Ric will be missed greatly, his quick smile and friendly hugs were always welcome. We were privilege to spend the day before he died with Ric and Punky. And as usual we spent most of the time either laughing or praying. But we do not mourn as those that I have no hope. We know that we will see him again.

    Susan & I are so very sorry to hear of Ric’s passing. We envision him at peace, in the eternal presence of God. And until we see him again, may God hold him in the palm of His hand.
