George W. Lundstedt

It is with heavy heart we share that George Lundstedt passed away peacefully January 30th, 2024, surrounded by family in Berkeley, California from complications related to Alzheimers. 

 

Born in Lynn, Massachusetts George is survived by his wife Ann (McLaughlin) Lundstedt, son Kyle Lundstedt and Nazanin Ozlati (Sonoma), daughter Katrina Lundstedt and Jonathan Maier (Berkeley), daughter-in-law Marya Lundstedt and grandchildren Konrad, Tor and Beda Lundstedt (Wilmette, IL). We take solace in imagining George reunited with son Eric Lundstedt (d. 2018). 

 

George lived his life with joy and shared that joy with so many. It is impossible to capture his essence in words. 

 

George grew up in Lynn Massachusetts, gained early fame as the “Chubby Hurler” in Little League. He went on to Lynn English High School and then Yale University where he proudly played football for the undefeated Class of ‘61. While in dental school, George met the love of his life Ann while both were working at The Hunt Club on Cape Cod and they married in 1965. They adored each other, showed that love with affection and often jumped up to dance together impromptu or sit and simply hold hands. Professionally, George practiced dentistry and then orthodontia for many years in Lynnfield, Massachusetts where George and Ann raised their family. In Lynnfield and through Salem Country Club, George and Ann met a group of lifelong friends and many of that wonderful group retired to the same community, Willoughby Golf Club in Stuart Florida. Wherever he was, from family dinners to dinner parties, to gatherings around the piano singing or stories being told in the 19th after golfing, George and his positive energy lit up the room. George and Ann moved to the Bay Area in 2018 to be close to family, to get love and support in managing their respective health challenges. Despite the pandemic and multiple surgeries, George’s amazingly positive attitude persevered.
