Peter Roy Lunde, Jr was born September 8, 1950 in Crosby, ND. He was then adopted into the loving family of Mildred and Peter Lunde, Sr. The family made their home on the Lunde farm in St. Thomas, ND. Peter attended St. Thomas Public School and graduated in 1968. He attended Mayville State University and made a career farming on the homestead. Peter was united in marriage to Katherine Eulert on January 15, 1982 and the couple made their home on the family farm. Their union was blessed with one daughter, Sarah. Farming was Peter’s passion, specifically combining (Gleaners only!), and spending time with his family. After retiring from farming, he worked in transportation as a long-haul truck driver. Peter was always a fan of traveling and was looking forward to taking family trips after his retirement. Peter was an animal lover and loved to spend time with his feline companions, Fred and George, on the farm. Listening to Sarah play piano was one of Peter’s favorite pastimes. In his later years, Peter connected with his half-brother, Vern Miller, on his biological mother’s side. Peter passed away peacefully at Altru Hospital in Grand Forks, ND on April 8, 2019 with Katherine and Sarah at his side after courageously battling Stage 4 Metastatic Melanoma. Peter is survived by his wife, Katherine, St. Thomas, ND; daughter, Sarah Lunde, Fargo, ND; sister, Jeannine (Russ) Van Loon, Winnipeg, MB; nephews Jared (Danielle) Jenner and Travis Jenner, Winnipeg, MB, David McGinnis; niece Camille Lambert; great nieces Peyton, Jayden, Taylor, and Ella Jenner, Winnipeg, MB, and many cousins. Peter was preceded in death by his parents, Peter Sr. and Mildred Lunde, and his sister, Judy McGinnis.
