Gregg Robert Lundeen, age 59, passed away of natural causes Monday evening, May 25, 2020 at his home in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. He was born June 3, 1960 in Gardner, Massachusetts to Gerald and Phyllis (Novak) Lundeen, currently of Pawley’s Island, SC. The Lundeen family relocated from Massachusetts to Bedford, PA, where Gregg was a 1978 graduate of Bedford High School. After high school, Gregg attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania. After college, he relocated to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. He was manager and shareholder of A Air Conditioning in Myrtle Beach, SC for 30 years.
In his early life, Gregg enjoyed travel, attending sporting events and his time at the beach with family and friends. He was a prolific and skilled writer. In high school he was editor of the school newspaper and was also on the high school yearbook staff. After high school, he wrote several articles for the Bedford Gazette newspaper and continued to produce writings for various people and entities throughout his lifetime. He thoroughly enjoyed music and his participation in high school productions.
Gregg enjoyed simple pleasures. He was a wonderful godfather and uncle and spent as much time as he could visiting and communicating with his nephews and niece. Cooking and hosting were a passion from which many friends and family benefitted from his talent. One of his greatest joys was attending sporting events as well as viewing them. He was an avid sports fan and active follower and donor of Penn State University. His deep knowledge of the university and the Nittany Lion Teams were impressive. Gregg collected PSU items in earnest. He donated much of his PSU memorabilia to a sports-themed establishment in Myrtle Beach he frequented through the years. He also supported the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh Pirates, St. Louis Cardinals and NASCAR. His knowledge of the sports world was admirable and often consulted by friends and family for information.
Gregg always enjoyed participating in family events throughout his life. Gregg had an open and trusting heart, and an uncanny ability to touch the lives of family and friends in a deep and positive way. He regularly communicated with cousins and good friends from his life’s journey. He worked side-by-side with his father, Gerald Lundeen and had a special friendship and association with him. His academic wisdom and emotional support were a comfort to so many family members and close friends. He had an unforgettable laugh and dry humor that will resonate in all who knew him forever.
Gregg is survived by his loving parents, Gerald and Phyllis Lundeen, his loving sister and brother-in-law, Cynthia and Brett Braciak of Clearwater Beach, FL, his loving brother and sister-in-law, Scott and Nicki Lundeen of Ringgold, GA, his loving nephews and nieces, Nicholas Kriebel and his new wife Shelby, Christian Kriebel, Caitlin Lisabeth Kriebel, all of Jacksonville, FL, Shaun Talbert and his wife, Jessica, in Manhattan, CA, and Kaylee Weber in Ringgold, GA. He was preceded in death by his nephew Logan Scott Lundeen of Ringgold, GA, whom he dearly loved. He was deeply committed to his life’s friendships and treasured his wonderful friends and neighbors with all his heart. His family was most important to him and we all felt his love throughout our lives. He will be sorely missed.
A private Catholic blessing service took place with his immediate family on Friday, June 5, 2020. Family, friends, and others whose lives Gregg touched are invited to attend a Celebration of Life Event for Gregg in Myrtle Beach, SC to reminisce, grieve, support each other and, of course, just chat.
