Gary Earl Lundstedt
(May 3, 1943 - October 13, 2015)

Gary Earl Lundstedt, 72 slipped his earthly bonds on October 13, 2015 after a very long battle with Diabetes.

Gary was born to Jacqueline Kinder Lundstedt an Earl Donald Lundstedt on May 3, 1943 in Salt Lake City, UT.

He married Karen Myers and together they had three wonderful children, Lewis John Lundstedt, Scott Earl Lundstedt and Kathy Ann Lundstedt. He is also survived by a brother, Brent Lundstedt, three grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Gary retired from the Defense Depot Ogden as a warehouseman/supervisor.

He was an avid golfer and enjoyed traveling to play on many golf courses. His home course was Ben Lomond where he enjoyed many hours in the company of his golf buddies.

At Gary’s request there will be a celebration of life at a later date. Many heartfelt thanks to Bonnie, Ken, and Dr. Riggs from Legacy Health and Hospice for their many hours of care and support.

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations in his memory to the American Diabetes Association or the Primary Children’s Hospital. Cremation provided by Premier Funeral Services.

I have known Gary since elementary school.  We played little league baseball at Liberty Park when we were maybe 10-12 years old- summer league.   Gary was a pitcher and very hard to hit because he was tall for his age and left handed.  A good man all around.  As with most of our class, I have not seen him since High School. Sleep in peace my good friend.  Will probably see you sooner than I think.   Dennis Gladwell

I too have great memories of Gary when we were kids.  He was the tallest kid at Lorin Farr and Mrs. Clark called him a "bean pole", a phrase I have often used to refer to tall people I have known throughout my life which always made me think of Gary.  That is a reminder that people don't really leave this earth since they live on in our hearts and minds.  Like Denny, I spent many days playing ball at Liberty park, and around 1955 I moved a block or two from Gary's house on Tyler, which made him my first stop when trying to find guys to go to the park with me.  I spent a lot of time at his house during these years and remember his mom always welcomed me warmly.  I am very glad to have known Gary.

Gary and I were early childhood friends.  We spent a lot of time at each other's homes and even more time playing baseball together with Little League at Liberty Park and later on Central's baseball team.  We also went golfing a few times.  He was a good down-to-earth guy.  I cherish the memories I had with him.  Love ya, man.
