  1. Bill and his brothers and sisters use to *babysit* me when I was about six-seven years old. We lived in the “fields” in the house my father built in 1960 {yikes!}. I would stay at the Lundin`s and happily play my days away! Sometimes Bill and Aaron would spend the day at my house. We would walk on the big tar covered water pipe down to the old river bridge and play for hours in the muddy water. We would play ‘WAR” and Bill being the oldest would always get to be The Captain! We had the Best Childhood growing up in St. George. Bill will be a part of those great memories.

  2. We loved Bishop Lundin, he was one of our most favorite Bishops, I had the privilege of serving with him as Finance Clerk, he was the one that called us to serve our Mission as a couple. We will never forget him.

  3. Bill was a kind and gentle giant. It was a special part of my life working for him in the school transportation department. He is too young to die. I will always remember him. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this most difficult time.

  5. We are so very sorry for your loss! We loved Bill…..I had the privilege of working with him….he would come in and talk to me on occasion…I loved his stories. I loved his enthusiasm for life….he was one of the most positive men I knew….we miss him, too.

  6. So sorry for your loss Jolyn. Bill was a great guy. I so enjoyed our visit celebrating his birthday. What a wonderful tribute for a wonderful man and friend! I will miss him coming into ACE Hardware and taking time to visit with me. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. May God bless!!!

  7. Dear Lundin Family,
    It is with heavy hearts that we send our condolences to your family after the passing of your husband and father. Bill was such a a special person and from the first time we met him, he was a character and a friend everyone wished they had. We were so lucky to know him and call him our friend. He will be sorely missed. What a great example he was and is in heaven. We want you all to know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time, and we are so thankful we got to see and visit him at the movie house with his lovely wife a few weeks ago. Heaven received a very special angel in Bishop Lundin, May he Rest In Peace and the best thing is he is now pain free. May you all feel of our heavenly fathers arms around you.
    Love to all,
    Cletus and Karen Adams

  8. I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to the family. The 46+ Singles found a friend in Bill Lundin. Rest in peace.

  9. What a great loss for his family and the community.
    Bill and his brothers and sisters grew up with parents that were warm and kind to everyone.( Louie and Bonnie Joe ) And Bill learned from the best. We know Bill is with them in a good place. It might be loud and noisy!!! But we know Bill is happy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  10. What a fun and good man. He loved his family so much. He told us he didn’t like his home empty that he loved it when he had his children and grandchildren there with him. We hope the family will find the comfort they seek and that they will find the joy in life that Bill found. Know that he has found a greater joy now and at the right time you will be together again! May the Good Lord bless all the Lundin family at this time of loss for you all.

  11. So sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. He’d been one of my teachers when I got my CDL. He was so knowledgeable, patient, and always willing to share a joke….or two…..or three. He will be missed. Your family will be in my prayers.

  12. I had the privilege of entering the mission field with Bill (Elder Lundin). There were five of us who flew up to the Canada Vancouver Mission together in May 1975. Always a pleasure to be around, which wasn’t often, but he has a special place in my heart from the short experiences we had together. I look forward to seeing him again.

  13. I’m reading Bill’s obituary on July 12, and stunned to hear of Bill’s passing. I am Linda’s age and missed the “full impact” of the days when Bill and Aaron were younger and really got to know Bill when my former wife Catherine worked with Bill on the school board. He was a dedicated problem solver and somewhat of a laugh riot. I hope Bill and Aaron’s children and grands are channeling Grandma Bonnie and Grandpa Louie, they were the best. To Jolyn and children my love and condolences.
