When asked how he wanted to be remembered Kurt replied, "I was a peacemaker, I always tried to do the right thing. I loved and was loved in return." Kurt was a native of the San Francisco Bay Area. He attended Miramonte High School and was a graduate of the University of Colorado. He received his commission in the Navy to Ensign through the Aviation Officer Candidate Program in April 1966. His first assignment was as an attack pilot flying the A-7 Corsair II from the USS ENTERPRISE as a part of Attack Squadron 146. During this cruise he flew 52 combat missions in Vietnam. He rose to the rank of Captain in his military career. At the end of his active duty he flew first for Western Airlines then Delta Airlines until his retirement. He and his wife, Anne, have been members of St. Mark's church for 7 years. God saw he was getting tired, A cure was not to be, So He put His arms around him And whispered 'Come with me' With tearful eyes we see him suffer, And watch him fade away. Although we loved him dearly We could not make him stay A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. A memorial service will be Thursday, August 7th at 11:00am in the small chapel at St. Mark's Catholic Church (2727 W. Tangerine Rd., Oro Valley, AZ 85737) Final resting place is to be decided and memorials may be made to the charity of your choice. The Lundblad family wishes to thank everyone for the show of love, support and kindness received.
