Edward Bernard Lundberg


Edward Bernard Lundberg, longtime resident of Emporium, died Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 
the age of 92.

Ed was born in Bradford, PA on August 14, 1925 to Mary and Edward Lundberg. At the age of 10 he moved with his parents from Olean to Emporium where he graduated from Emporium High School in 1942. Upon graduation, he worked as a draftsman at Sylvania until he entered the Air Force as an Aviation Cadet.

He married the love of his life, Joyce Magnuson, on May 25, 1946 and they were devoted to one another for 71 years. Even in the last few years, Ed never left Joyce's side as she took residency at the Felt Manor Assisted Living.

After graduating from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science in 1950, Ed served the community as a healthcare provider in various hometown pharmacies for 60 years. He was a sole proprietor at Lundberg Pharmacy, partnered with Paul DeVittorio at Devland Pharmacy and then partnered with Ken Burkhouse forming Burklund Pharmacy. Later in his business career, he worked for his son Blair at Lundberg Pharmacy. Even after retirement, Ed would spend the last few hours of each day standing beside his son and greeting customers in the store. He took pride in knowing everyone in the community and sharing a conversation with them while they shopped.

Ed also served the community in many other facets. He started the Cameron County Cardiac Committee and was its director for 65 years; he served as Emporium Foundation Director for almost 50 years, was a charter member of Emporium Country Club, Bank Director of the Emporium Trust/Bucktail Bank, and served on the SUN-FNB-Northwest Bank Advisory Board. Ed was also a former director of the Emporium Water Company, CC Land Development, and the Grove Home.Ed was a member of the First United Methodist Church of Emporium, the American Legion for over 70 years, was a 60 year member of the Emporium Masonic Lodge, now Driftwood-Emporium Lodge #532 and the Coudersport Consistory, and a past member of the Jaffa Shrine, Altoona.

For many years you could find Ed watching golfers from his home while they teed off at Hole 6 at the Emporium Country Club and whether they wanted it or not, he would find time to give advice to all players on their game/form.

Ed loved spending time with his family and following his grandkids' sporting activities. He enjoyed playing baseball and golf, following all sports on TV and playing cards with his group of friends. Ed found solitude in long rides in the woods, cutting grass on his riding lawnmower and burning in his woodstove.

He is survived by: his wife, Joyce; his two sons, Craig Lundberg of Waltham, Mass. and Blair Lundberg (Linda) of Emporium; six grandchildren, Tom Lundberg (Courtney), Adam Lundberg, Michael Lundberg (Allison), Krista LeZotte (Darin), Brittany Lundberg, Jonathan Lundberg; and one great granddaughter, Karina Lundberg.
