Obituary for Gordon M. Sannes

Gordon M. Sannes, age 92, passed away on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 surrounded by his family. Gordon was born on October 28, 1925 to the late Knute and Emily (Phillips) Sannes. He grew up in Scandinavia, WI on the family farm and graduated from Scandinavia High School. Following graduation, he entered the U.S. Navy, serving during WWll on an aircraft carrier. Following his discharge from the Navy, he met Joanne Fietzer in the summer of 1952. They married the following January 31, 1953. Together they lived on a small farm with their five children. Gordon worked for many years at Morning Glory Dairy, where he retired in 1988.

In his free time, Gordon was proud of his time as a Scout Master for Boy Scouts, camping, and dart ball. He also enjoyed the time watching his children and grandchildren race stock cars. He was an avid Packers, Brewers and Badgers fan and loved to deer hunt with family and friends. Gordon’s most joyful times were when he was able to spend time with his family.

Gordon is survived by his wife, Joanne; children: Gordon (Sharon) Sannes, Larry (Linda) Sannes, Lee (Amy) Sannes, Sandy Hornick, and Patty (Mike) Butz; grandchildren: Evan (Melissa) Sannes, Neal (Ashley) Sannes, Kellie (Adam) Huth, Julie (Brett) Buth, Amber (Jason) Smits, Aaron Sannes, Lisa (Matt) Nellis, Emily (Chad) Caelwaerts, Matt Butz and Chad Butz; ten great-grandchildren with another on the way. He is further survived by a sister, Nancy (Irv) Johnson, sister-in-law Alta Sannes, brother-in-law Duane (Rachel) Fietzer and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in passing by his parents, son-in-law, Larry Hornick, brothers: Kenneth (Alice Jane) Sannes, Gahart (Henrietta) Sannes, Truman (Joyce) Sannes, and Norman Sannes, parents-in-law, Alvin and Myrtle Fietzer, and sister-in-law Donna (Harold) Shanklin.
