Obituary for Walter Alrik Lund

Walter Alrik  Lund
Walter A. Lund (Bud), age 83 of Brainerd, MN formerly of Thief River Falls, MN passed away from leukemia on June 18, 2018 at St. Joseph Medical Center in Brainerd. He was born February 28, 1935 to Myrtle (Skime) and Alrik John Lund, at home, in Marshall County MN. After completing his education, he joined the National Guard. Later he enlisted in the Air Force for a four-year term. His duty there was aircraft mechanic. He was honorably discharged January 23, 1959. He was proud of his membership in the American Legion for 50 years. He returned to Thief River Falls where he was employed by Hartz Wholesale grocery chain in the billing department, retiring after 32 years.

He and Dione Moe were married December 14, 1957 at Bethesda Lutheran Church in Roseau County. They recently celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary with immediate family.

After retiring they moved to the Brainerd area where they have enjoyed living for the past 25 years. Owning a camper and spending time at a lake became their summer pastime.

Walt enjoyed hunting, fishing, anything he could do outdoors and spectator sports on TV from his easy chair. As for exercising, dancing was his favorite. He was also a handyman, tackling any challenge that came his way. His biggest project was working side by side with his brother-in-law Don, building Don’s cabin from the foundation up. He had a quick wit and a wonderful sense of humor.

He was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran faith. He enjoyed the church “family” at Trinity Lutheran, where he was a member since 1994. He also attended the Friday morning Men’s Bible Study when able.

He is deeply missed by wife Dione, daughter Shelly (Joel) Moryn, son Myles (Tammy), daughter Brenda Wallace; grandchildren Nick (Jaslyn) and Jesse Moryn, Ericka (Jon) Severson and Christine Lund, Janie (Mike) McCulley; great grandchildren Bennett Moryn, Isaac and Nora Severson, Brayden, Emmitt and Linley McCulley; sisters Mavis Offerdahl and Eileen VeVea; brother Harvey (Lillian) and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Hurby and brother-in-law Merlyn Offerdahl.

A memorial service will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church, 1420 S. 6th St., Brainerd on Saturday June 30th. Visitation starts at 10am with the service immediately following at 11am. Military rites provided by Brainerd American Legion.
