H. Wilson Sundt '54

Known as “Unky” to close family and friends, H. Wilson Sundt graduated from the University of Arizona in 1954 with a degree in Business Management. A prominent figure in the Tucson community, Unky and his brother soon took over their family business and helped create it into a booming enterprise as Tucson-based Sundt Construction. To date, Sundt Construction has completed projects in 21 states and 11 countries, including projects such as the U.S. Embassy in Moscow and the Apollo 11 launch pad in Florida. His accomplishments were recognized by Engineering-News Record, an industry magazine, where he was featured on the cover in both 1977 and 1990. Outside of work, Unky was very influential within the local community. He served on the boards of Magma Copper, Schuff Steel, University of Arizona Foundation, Tucson Airport Authority and the Tucson Electric Power company. Sundt was awarded the Free Enterprise Award in 1989 by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce, by the University of Arizona with the 1982 Distinguished Citizen Award and the 1989 Medallion Award for those who demonstrate lifelong service to the community. 

During his time at the University, Unky was also a member of Bobcats. 

Unfortunately after a battle with cancer, Unky passed away at the age of 75 in 2008. He is survived by his college sweetheart, Dottie, three children and six grandchildren
