Albert Junior Lundgren
Albert was born January 2nd, 1923 and met Jesus on the 11th of April, 2020.
Albert lived a full life growing up in Celeron, New York and graduating high school in 1942. He was a United States Army Veteran and served faithfully overseas in World War II. Following the discharge from his military service he married the love of his life, and his “boss”; as he liked to remind us; Nancy Helen Johnson. They were happily married for 67 years. Albert worked as a control room supervisor for the Board of Public Utilities in Jamestown, New York for 30 plus years prior to moving to Canon City. As his grandchildren, we were blessed enough to enjoy listening to all his amazing stories from his 97 years of life! He had a sense of humor that never stopped and was the master of puns that made us laugh every time we were around him. On Albert’s daily walks around the community, he greeted everyone with a smile and was enjoyed by every person he encountered along the way. Albert was truly a pillar of light for Christ. He was the rock and foundation for the family. He showed us all what it meant to be a faithful follower of Christ and we have all gained from that.
He is survived by 7 grandchildren Jenny, Josie, Karen, Thomas, Katie, Jessica, and Jacob along with many great grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his wife Nancy, a brother Robert, and sister Elsie, his children Thomas (and wife Jeri) and daughter Sally (and husband Bill) as well as many dear friends.
He never wanted anyone to cry when he passed but instead to take heart that he was with the Lord and the rest of the family. When we are able, the family will hold a party to honor his memory as he asked instead of a memorial service. Laugh much and love hard for we will see you again soon grandpa!
