Edward Lundberg

November 30, 1918 — June 18, 2016

Edward Lundberg was born February 26th, 1919 to Hilmer and Martha Lundberg in Mankato Minnesota. Mr. Lundberg moved to Boulder in 1949 and was a brick mason in the area for many years. His favorite quote, from Thoreau, was "Do not hire a man who does your work for money, but him who does it for love of it." Ed married Helen Rollings in 1940 with whom he had two sons, Forrest and Douglas; she died in 1960. He married Eunice Sanders in 1966; they had one daughter, Ann. Eunice died in 2007. Mr. Lundberg served in the U.S. Army during the Okinawa campaign in World War II as a member of the 77th Infantry Division. He was wounded in action in April 1945 and received the Purple Heart from Admiral "Bull" Halsey. Mr. Lundberg belonged to the First Presbyterian Church. He was also a life member of the Disabled American Veterans and a member of the Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Union since 1956. An avid reader, he also enjoyed baking, woodworking, camping, and exploring Colorado. He is survived by: sons Forrest (Holly) Lundberg of Boulder and Doug (Linda) Lundberg of Berthoud, CO; daughter Ann and her husband Duane Jundt of Orange City, IA; five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. They'll miss his sunny attitude, his stories, and his wise words. His memorial service will be held in the main sanctuary at First Presbyterian Church, 3pm on June 29; reception to follow. Memorial donations may be made to First Presbyterian Church Missions, TRU Hospice of Boulder, or the Mesa Verde Museum Association.
