Born the only child of Henry and Minnie Lund in Seattle Washington on June 2nd, 1929, he excelled in school and worked in the summers for a fire crew in the Cascade Mountains. After graduating from the University of Washington with a degree in Electrical Engineering, he served with honor in the Korean Conflict.

Fred loved exploring the world while hiking, driving, and traveling with his wife and family; or, spending time reading about history and aeronautics. A quiet man, he was devoted to his family and to his country. He had a joyful spirit and an endless thirst for knowledge. He will be deeply missed by those who knew and loved him.
