Samuel Glen Lundberg, 31

Samuel Glen Lundberg, 31, Kennedy, Minn.,  passed away while on vacation in Tualatin, Ore.,  Monday, Nov. 28, 2016 of natural causes.
Sam was born Aug. 9, 1985 to Glen and Mary Lundberg in Grand Forks, N.D. He joined his two sisters and lived in rural Kennedy all his life. He attended school in Kennedy/Hallock school district and graduated in 2004. While in school he enjoyed many years of hockey, both park board and varsity.
Sam worked many jobs before committing fully to farming. He worked on Oak Island for several summers, did carpentry work and worked as a meat cutter with Ed Lehrke. All skills that served him well in life and helped others. Sam was a friend to many, and many were his friends. He was a good son and a well loved brother. When there was work to do, he knew how to get his hands dirty and get the work done, and always with his special smile and quick wit. When horses need a fence, he was there. When hay need to be loaded, he was there 24/7 and when the chickens needed a coop, he gave up his fish house in exchange for eggs.
