Obituary of August William Lundquist Jr.
Rev. Dr. August Lundquist, Jr. 86 of Fort Wayne went to be with his Lord and Savior on June 28, 2019, surrounded by his loving family. August was born in Pierceton, Indiana in June of 1933 to August and Myrtle (Maggart) Lundquist. After graduating from Pierceton High School, he furthered his Christian education with a degree from Kentucky Asbury and then later earned his Master’s and then Doctorate of Divinity. He served the Lord at various United Methodist churches in northern Indiana, including the Yoke Parish of Mexico and Twelve Mile Bethlehem; Shiloh United Methodist Church of Kokomo, IN; Saint Andrews UMC Syracuse, IN; First United Methodist Church of Auburn, IN; and Methodisth churches in Alexandria, IN, Farmland, IN; Marion, IN; New Hope and the South Whitley United Methodist Church. August is survived by his beloved wife of 38 years, Sharon (Dove) Lundquist, his children Linda (Jeannie) Lundquist of Norfolk, Virginia; Nita (Kevin) Webb of Auburn; Susi (Brian) Webb of Anthem, Arizona; Mark (Kelly) Lundquist of Albion; step-daughter Cindy Cooper of Alexandria; seven grandchildren and one step-grandchild; twelve great-grandchildren and several nieces, nephews and cousins. He was preceded to glory by his parents, his sisters Lilyan (Lundquist) Berlin and Lucille (Lundquist) Dunfee, and by his step-children Deanna (Cooper) Brees and Nick Cooper. August loved the Lord and sought innovative ways to share the good news of God’s love, compassion and redemption. A gifted musician, August sang in many ensembles and choirs. He loved singing hymns and praise music, served in various leadership roles for Epworth Forest Choir School, and sang with the Sounds of Hope tour throughout Europe. Fifty years ago, he was one of the Founding pastors for Lake Wawasee’s Boat-in Worship, which continues today. He was an early adopter of contemporary worship and praise music as well as a lover of more traditional worship, rich hymnology and classical music. August was a life-long teacher, reader and learner. He loved his family, cherished his friends and thoroughly enjoyed golfing, camping and boating. August’s creativity, innovation, encouragement and prayer support will be missed by all who were close to him. He was an example whose influence reached beyond his view.
