THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Donald E. Lund
Donald E. Lund, 77, of Stevens Point, died at home, Sept. 3 while under the care of his family and hospice.
He was born March 17, 1936 to the late Ernest and Joyce (Fifarek) Lund in Menominee, MI. His family moved to Marinette where he attended grade school and graduated from high school. He later attended the State College of Whitewater, graduating with a degree in business administration.
He was inducted into the U.S. Marine Corps June 15, 1954 and was honorably discharged June 14, 1956. He married Bonnie Radtke on Jan. 7, 1961 in Oconomowoc.
He worked for IBM as a systems engineer for over 33 years. His career had him changing location about every two years until settling in Stevens Point. After semi-retiring from IBM, he was sought out by Wausau Insurance, where he worked for six more years, until retirement.
In his earlier years, he coached girls softball, Little League, basketball, and flag football; in addition to camping with his children. He was considered a math genius, as he had a photographic memory.
Survivors include his wife, Bonnie of Stevens Point; sons, Eric of Stevens Point, and Todd of Round Rock, TX; daughters, Beth (Craig) Paulson of Maple Grove, MN, Cheryl (Robert) Turany of Dripping Springs, TX; and Heidi (Bill) Tepp of Stoughton; and six grandchildren.
A Memorial Service was held at 11 am, Saturday, Sept. 7, at St. Paul's United Methodist Church with Rev. Mike Weigand officiating. A time of sharing memories was held at the church from 9 am until the time of Service.
