Obituary: Robert "Bob" Lund

Posted: Updated:

Robert “Bob” K. a retired CMSgt, passed away on Tuesday, September 26, 2017 with his family at his side, just 5 days past his 92nd birthday.

Bob was one of 7 children born to Ernest Eugene and Ida Mae (Andersen) Lund in Fountain Green, Utah on September 21, 1925.

Upon graduating from American Fork High School, he joined the Navy and served during the latter part of WWII.

After an honorable discharge from the Navy, Bob joined the Army/Air Corp, starting on his goal of serving in all branches of the military.

Upon the division of the Army and Air Force, Bob chose to make a career with the Air Force. However, it did fulfill his goal, as the Marines at the time were part of the Navy as the Coast Guard was not yet part of the military family.

Bob was a strong unassuming man that did not like any form of attention, as he said he liked to “Fly under the radar.” During his almost 30 years of a successful Air Force career, he was awarded many honors and awards.

Bob attained the rank of CMSgt when this rank was first instituted.

The last years of his military career, he traveled to many small bases and sites speaking with the “young troops” as he put it, just to see what their needs were and what morale issues may arise.
