Obituary for David "Dave" L. Lundgren Jr.

David “Dave” L. Lundgren Jr., 53, of La Crosse passed away Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018, at his home with his nephew, Bryan, holding his hand. He was born on March 13, 1964, and raised by his loving mother, LuElla Kerska. Dave graduated from Central High School in 1982 and went on to do various jobs. His final and favorite job was house painting where he had a very steady hand. Before he became ill, he enjoyed fishing and hunting. Those who knew Dave well, also knew that his red headed temperament played a part in his personality; but we loved him anyway. His lifetime of smoking caught up with him and he lost his battle with COPD. Dave is survived by his sister, Michele (Jim) Morris of La Crosse; brother, Todd Lundgren of Oregon; five nieces and nephews; and beloved cats, Callie and Muffy. He was preceded in death by his mother, LuElla and his maternal grandparents. A visitation will be held from 4 p.m until 6 p.m., on Monday Jan. 15, 2018, at Jandt-Fredrickson Funeral Home, Woodruff Chapel, 4239 Mormon Coulee Rd, La Crosse. Online condolences may be sent at Dave’s passing allowed the gift of life to be given to those in need by being a tissue donor and the gift of sight by being an eye donor. The family would like to thank Dr. Mengyi Zha at Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse for all of the kindness and concern shown to Dave.
