My condolences go to the Lunde family; Jim was a joy to work with in the world of officiating, I was glad to have him and his sons working for me in the Rochester Youth Basketball Program as officials.

Jan, Brad, Steve, Tom and Joe,

I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a father I know is horrible, I cannot imagine a spouse of over 50 years!
You all are in my thoughts and prayers. Lean on friends and family at this difficult time. Remember the good times and keep them close in your heart. Jim loved you all so much everyone could see it in his eyes and smile.

You were always so special when I would see you and give me a big hug and remind me of the time that you moomed me from the bus that you were in. We would laugh so hard. Also always having fun at the the baseball games when our boys played at Mayo High School and at the Legion games. You will be missed and I pray for Jan and the boys to hold onto Jim`s memory close to their hearts. Gretchen Cutshall

Jan and Family....So sorry to hear of the loss of Jim. So many great memories of crossing paths at the boys ballgames as they grew up one by one. Jim was always fun to heckle, and he heckled right back! After we left town, we would come back and stay at Deb's moms house and when out walking the dog in the neighborhood, we would walk by your place, and occasionally "catch up". All great memories!

God Bless!

Jan, Brad, Steve, Tom, and Joey, so sorry to hear about Jim's passing. Got so many memories that it would take a War and Peace novel just to write about. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this tough time.

Jan, Boys, and Family
I’m so sorry to hear about Jim. He was always so kind and such a loving Man. I remember babysitting you Boys and your Dad always have me a ride home to make sure I was safe, even just living 2 blocks away.
I know God has His plan for us all, and we are never ready for them to go. May you all find Peace at this difficult time. You are all in my thoughts and Prayers. May He Rest In Peace 🙏

Jan and Family
So sorry to hear of Jim's passing.
We have lots of good memories of our golf outings. Keeping Your Family in our prayers
Hadn't realize you moved to Florida.

Jan and family: So sorry to hear about the passing of Jim. Since Paul and I are now going to St. Pius and not seeing you around Rochester, did not realize that you had moved to Florida. Seems like it was a long time ago that we worked together at St. Francis and we all just had work problems and not health problems with ourselves or our husbands. My thoughts are with you at this time. Marilyn Sohm
