Lundquist, Robert (2/8/2015)

Bob Lundquist passed away Sunday night, February 8, after a long battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife, Jackie, five children and stepchildren, and eight grandchildren. Bob was, of course, one of our best-known classmates, in part, because of his incredible musical talent and booming personality. Some of our best reunion memories are standing around the piano forgetting the lyrics to old rock ’n’ roll songs as Lunk entertained us until the wee hours. How many of us just have to think of Lunk whenever we hear Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On?
