Sunderland was born in St. Joseph, Missouri, on 16 August 1926, the son of Charles Louis and Mary Abby (Carswell) Sunderland. He married Anne Elizabeth Shields on 21 July 1951 in Kansas City, Missouri. He graduated from Doane College in 1948 and Church Divinity School of the Pacific in 1951. That same year he was ordained both a deacon and priest. He spent the early years of his priesthood as Deacon in Charge and then rector of St. John's Church in Kansas City, from 1951 to 1955. He then became vicar of Grace Church in Colton, California, before going to St. Timothy's Church in Compton in 1958. He was rector of St. Andrew's CHurch in Taft, California, from 1959 to 1961. He was then vicar of St. Mary's Church in Webster and Christ Church in Milbank, South Dakota, from 1961 to 1965. He came to Chesterton, Indiana, in 1965, serving initially at what was to be called the Church of the Holy Nativity but later renamed the Church of the Incarnation. He remained there until 1973 and held non-parochial status in 1974. Opposed to women's ordination, he became a priest in the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Church in 1975, founding St. Alexis Parish in Lafayette. Bishop Sheridan deposed him from the Episcopal Church in 1978. He died in Grand Junction, Colorado, on 22 October 2017 and was buried from St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church.
