Joseph “Joe” William Lunde, age 57 of Beaver Dam, passed away surrounded by his family at UW Hospital on Wednesday, July 24, 2019.
Joe was born on May 28, 1962, to Jim and Shirley Lunde. Joe was the 5th of 10 siblings. He is survived by his wife Laurie, his three sons: Joshua, Jared, and Jesse, their partners Sarah and Katie, his mother Shirley, his 9 brothers and sisters, his nieces and nephews, and the countless others he loved and who loved him. He is preceded in death by his father Jim, his nephew Pearce, and his two dogs Cosmo and Miles.
Joe enjoyed golf, running, dogs, Wisconsin sports, and relaxing in the sun. For the past several years was a store leader at Kwik Trip 651 in Waupun. During his life Joe asked for little and gave a lot. He excelled at making people feel comfortable and caring for others. He was an endless source of smiles to those around him, a mentor to his team, and a hero to his sons. The selfless generosity that so characterized Joe’s life continues in death through the donation of his organs. He will be deeply missed, but always loved and never forgotten.
