Emory 'Skip''s Story
Emory "Skip" Lundy, of Kewadin, passed away Sept. 15, 2017 surrounded by the family he so loved.
Skip was born on Feb. 3, 1927 in South Haven to Gertrude Lillian (Treloggen) and Edson Franklin Lundy. He married Theresa Eiseler on June 12, 1948.
He is survived by his five children, James (Lisa), Karon, Gregg, David (Maggie) and Barb (Denny); his nine grandchildren; and 13 great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Arthur and Harold; sisters, Evelyn and Jenny; and other family members.
Skip served in the U.S. Armed Forces in Germany. He was later employed by Lundy Motor Sales in St. Johns from 1946 to 1955. He retired from the automobile division of General Motors in 1972. Skip worked for the Antrim County Road Commission from 1972 to 1975. From 1975 to 1977 he built homes in Anchorage, Alaska, and then worked for the Elk Rapids Schools until 1989.
He was a proud member of The American Legion and a lifetime member of the Elk Rapids Sportsman's Club.
He will be remembered for his quirky sense of humor, work ethic, love of the outdoors and sharing his and Theresa's place on the lake with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren - many days of big fun.
His greatest accomplishment was being the patriarch of a large, loving family who adore and admire him for the very fine man that he was.
