Oscar E. Sundstedt, DC, 83, beloved husband and father, passed from this life to the next Nov. 3, 2018.  Oscar was born in Flint, Michigan.  He was a music major at Michigan State, where he met the love of his life, Nancy.  Together they moved to Davenport, where he studied at Palmer, to become a Grostic Chiropractor. 

Oscar was a life member of the Lions Club and played piccolo and flute in the Quad City Symphony. 

He suffered a massive stroke at 57, and despite great odds, remained upbeat and grateful for life. Oscar enjoyed cooking, photography, travel, bicycling, and dogs.  His great passions were God, his family, music, the Lions Club, and helping and healing others.
