Earl was born on a farm east of Blanchard, ND, on February 4, 1921, the son of Emil and Anna Mathilda Lundeen. He died in the Hillsboro Nursing Home on May 5, 2015 at the age of 94.
Earl spent his entire life farming the family farm and tending his cattle. He was a kind, gentle and quiet man with a wonderful sense of humor and a ready smile. Earl loved a good game of cards, horseshoes and spending time with family and friends. Earl was preceded in death by his parents and all his siblings, Roy, Francis Buringrud, George, Elenore, Lloyd and Mildred Lundeen.
A special thanks to Jack Hansen, Angie Kritzberger and the staff of the nursing home for their kindness and care of our uncle. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
