August 13, 1957 - August 9, 2020
With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Jeremy Lee Lund on August 9, 2020. He was 62 years old. Jeremy, or Jerry, as he was often called, was born in Pasadena, CA. to Gordon and Lillie Lund and six other siblings. He had four brothers and two sisters and then, as always, he was the youngest of a band of seven. His siblings ranged from 15 to 2 years older, and from the top, they are Jeffrey, Michael, Randall, Kristine, Deborah, and Daniel. The family lived for many years in Arcadia, CA., near the foothills of 5712 foot tall Mt. Wilson. Jerry enjoyed all the fun and interesting things to do, such as visiting the beaches, mountains and deserts, along with school sports and church activities. We were fortunate our parents appreciated camping, fishing, and skiing. Through the Boy Scouts and family, there were many trips to places like Ellery Lake, in the High Sierras, and Jumbo Rocks, in Joshua Tree National Park, and the ski area at Mammoth Mt. In a December, 1963 newsletter, our mother wrote, under “events of the year”…..”Look…..Jerry is Skiing”. She also mentioned each child, and of Jerry she wrote, “Our youngest in First Grade! He is eager, happy, polite (usually), sometimes stubborn, always a joy”. Over the years Jerry was an L.A. Dodgers fan, and he enjoyed the events in neighboring Pasadena, such as the Rose Bowl games and the Rose Parade. In 1971 our parents packed up and moved back to their roots along the Wasatch Mountains, and settled in Cottonwood Heights. Jerry was 13 at the time, and soon participated in the offerings from school and local recreation. He played football for Brighton High. He had a camaraderie with Dan, the next oldest, that involved local skiing, and even a year or so in Colorado. Jerry enjoyed camping trips with friends to places such as the Colorado River in the red rocks by Moab. He became talented and impassioned with golf and spent many hours in that enjoyment, including trips to Mesquite, NV., and even Cabo San Lucas in Baja, Mexico. Jerry also had promising abilities to write prose and poetry, and he produced some thoughtful and creative works. He was also a fun person to have at family gatherings, many of which were held at the family mountain home in Sundance, UT. Our parents died, almost simultaneously, in 2009. Jerry had lived with them a number of years, and kept the nest from being empty. He had to readjust and consolidate, and was able to obtain a condominium. In recent years Jerry started having some medical problems, including chest surgery for cancer. He also had some financial difficulties. He tried hard to make his situation better, even with failing health. Before he could win the battle he was taken from this life by a sudden catastrophic medical event. Jeremy is survived by all six of his siblings. We have many good memories of Jerry and his life. We all miss him very much, and with love we say goodbye…………………..’till we meet again.
