Reverend Dr. Holger O. Lundin, of Wethersfield, died Saturday, September 02, 2017 at Hartford Hospital.

He also leaves behind a sister, Lillian West of Leland, North Carolina, 4 nieces and 4 nephews, and many cousins in Sweden.

Holger attended West Hartford schools and graduated from William Hall High School, Class of 1955. He graduated UConn in 1967; went onto Rutgers University, New Jersey, and received a Master's Degree; went on to the Lutheran Seminary in Philadelphia and continued his education for a Doctorate of Ministry at the San Francisco Seminary in California.

Pastor Lundin served as a pastor at three churches in Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Connecticut. Even after his retirement, Holger continued to fill in for vacant churches in Connecticut.

Holger will be missed by all who knew and loved him. He was generous and loved by his church family, family, neighbors, and community. Holger had a great love for sharing God's Word and helping people in need. He invested his life into the congregations he served through preaching and teaching adults, youths, and children. He regularly visited people during hospital stays and other times of need. For hobbies, Holger loved to do woodworking with friends, racquetball, swimming, golfing, and walking. He served as Secretary of the Swedish Relief Society and was always proud of his Swedish heritage. He was also active in the Wethersfield Computer Learning Center.
