Tribute & Message From The Family

Eric P. Lunde, resident of Melrose, passed away at Park Avenue Health Center in Arlington on Wednesday, March 10, 2021. He was 63.

Born in Malden on August 8, 1957, Eric was one of three children of the late William O.E. and Hilda (O'Brien) Lunde. He grew up in Malden and attended Malden schools.

Eric loved music and staying in touch with his friends. He was an active member of the Boston Crusaders Drum Corps. He played and marched, and taught the Drum Corps in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. One of Eric's favorite bands was Tower of Power, and he followed them for many years.

He always told and good story and making people feel at ease and laugh came naturally to him. One would often find him on the phone or computer chatting with a friend or family member. A die-hard Yankee fan, Eric's home was adorned with Yankee memorabilia.

Gone too soon, Eric will be deeply missed by his dear family and friends.

Eric was the beloved husband of Patricia (White) Lunde of Melrose, dear brother of Jeffrey Lunde and his wife Kathleen of Malden, and William Lunde of Revere.
He is also survived by his nieces, and one great nephew.

Services are currently private.

Condolence & Memory Journal

I had no idea Eric had passed. I will always remember him as a "Giant" among the BAC and a lover of music of all types. He was also very supportive of our work with the Cadets. I sincerely hope that time has begun to ease the pain and sorrow.
