Carl “Sunny” Schweitzer left this life in the early hours of Sunday, June 28. Born in Nebraska, Sunny grew up playing hockey and water skiing on Lake Okoboji. He attended the University of Miami on a water skiing scholarship and later in life developed a passion for sailing and the America’s Cup. Sunny was a talented flutist, a skill he shared with his daughters. He lived and traveled extensively in South America and Mexico, where he mastered exotic dishes while becoming a chef. While in South America, he fostered an interest in spiritual paths. He later became a devoted Buddhist, purifying his negativity and reaching out to others with compassion and an open heart. Sunny was always a source of great humor and inspiration for his friends. Sunny is survived by his daughters Andrea Garvey and Sarah Schweitzer, beloved granddaughter Sophia Garvey, Sister Julie Cramer, and niece Bee. Sunny’s family will remember him in a private ceremony in July.
