In Memory of Don Soderquist

We are deeply saddened to share that Don Soderquist passed away on Thursday morning from complications related to heart surgery.

First and foremost, Don loved God and his wife, Jo. He was so proud of each of his children and their families. It was clear to see what was most important in his life: his faith and his family. He modeled that so well.

He had a unique ability to make others feel valued through his genuine interest in them as people. His driving motivation "to impact people in a positive way," I believe, is the mark he left on Walmart and why Soderquist Leadership exists today.

 
We will miss him terribly but we know his expectations for us. We are blessed to do good work and will carry that forward to impact people and honor his legacy. 

- Chuck Hyde CEO, Soderquist Leadership

Below is a video released in 2014 for Soderquist Leadership’s 15th Anniversary to honor Don Soderquist, our founder and the animator of our mission.

One of the things we've enjoyed over the years is hearing so many peoples' stories of their interactions with Don. If you'd like to share your "Don Story" or just leave a comment, we'd love to hear it.
