Robert Lundy Obituary
Robert W. Lundy, long-time Oak Park and River Forest resident, passed away on August 21, 2013, at his home in River Forest. He was 70 years old. A memorial service will be held on Sunday afternoon, September 15, 2013, at 2:00 pm, at the Third Unitarian Church, 301 N. Mayfield Avenue, Chicago. Rob is survived by his daughter, Susan A. Lundy, of Oakland, California; his son David W. Lundy of Mountain View California; and his brother, Joseph R, Lundy of Rancho Mirage, California. Born in Chicago on April 15 1943, to Francis L. and Alice W. Lundy, Rob attended the Wilmette Public Schools, New Trier High School, Blackburn College in Carlinville, Illinois, and the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. He was an officer in the U.S. Air Force from 1965 to 1968, and later a personnel officer at the Federal Home Loan Bank Board, which became the Office of Thrift Supervision. At the end of his federal career he worked for the Comptroller of the Currency. Rob was long active in the Third Unitarian Church in Chicago's Austin neighborhood. He had served as TUC board co-chair, and in recent years volunteered as a front door greeter and watchman. Rob put his driving skills to work operating a "TUC Taxi" service. He ferried scores of church members to Chicago area airports and train stations, often with complimentary goodies for the upcoming trip. Rob was known to his friends as a generous and gentle soul. As his daughter Susie said of him at the 2007 National Food Bank Volunteer of the Year award ceremony, "My father taught me by his example to live my life in service to others, to live with integrity, and to show compassion for those less fortunate than I."
