Reverend Robert (Bob) Charles Lundberg passed peacefully into eternal life on December 31st, 2021 at Milaca Elim Nursing Home in Milaca, Minnesota.
Bob was born on Dec 30, 1935 in Milaca, Minnesota. Bob married Doris Swedberg on June 7th, 1958 at Blackduck Evangelical Free Church. Bob and Doris were happily married for 63 years.
Bob is preceded in death by parents Herman and Ruth Lundberg; siblings Jeannette Finnesgard, Grace Alen, Gordon (Vergean) Lundberg; and son-in-law Tom Taylor.
Bob is survived by his wife Doris, by his five children Randy (Jody) Lundberg, Becky Taylor, Brenda (Jerry) Paulson, Lori (Mike) Treiber, and Rick (Trisha) Lundberg as well as 16 grandchildren Jonathan (Eliza), Jordan (Alison), Christian, and Sydney Lundberg; Tara and Wes Taylor; Britta Paulson, Kirstin (Matt) Beyland and Shawn (Jenna) Paulson; Levi, Bodie, and Micah Treiber; Maggie, Lindsay, Ruthie, and Betsy Lundberg. He is also survived by 3 great-grandchildren Avery and Ziva Beyland, and Rhylin Allie Presley and brother, Duane Lundberg.
Bob was a faithful servant of the Lord, pastoring for 40+ combined years at several churches. He started by pastoring Indus Evangelical Free Church and Border Evangelical Free Church in northern Minnesota. He then moved to central Wisconsin and pastored 3 Evangelical Free Churches in Arpin, Pittsville, and Junction City. He followed these churches with 30+ years at Arthur, Iowa. He also dedicated time helping with Church plants including Storm Lake, Iowa, camp ministries and numerous other ministries. In his retirement, Bob continued to be a light and encouragement to the community, serving as Interim Pastor and Bible study leader as he touched the lives of those around him.
Anybody that knew Bob would say that he loved fiercely. His ministry on Earth continued until the moment Jesus called him home. He had a deep love for his wife and his family. He faithfully prayed for his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren by name every single night.
He will surely be missed by many, but especially by the love of his life, Doris. Doris said, “He was a really good husband. He was loved by a lot of people.” While saying good-bye is hard, we are left with great hope and eternal peace knowing he is finally home with his Lord and Savior.
A celebration of life will be scheduled in future months.
