In Memory

James Lunn

James Lunn

The following comments were provided by his twin sister, Kathy Lunn Edison:

I just want to let the committee know of a deceased twin brother James Lunn passed away Sept. 30.....Jim was a very private person and he had always chosen not to put his contact information out - even tho I suggested it several times over the years when I would receive a newsletter or message thru the website - it was his choice and I respected it.

Jim was one of the greatest men I knew - brother, son, uncle, father and grandfather - he was also a 20 year Army veteran who loved his country to the utmost - he did three tours in Vietnam and was awarded the Silver Star, Bronze Star and Purple Heart - just proud to have done his part for all his fellow Americans....he then went on to a 25+ year career in corporate security and traveled the world in that position.

There are so many memories for me - I will miss his humor (not everyone "got it"), his caring and generosity (his first words were always "what can I do"), his texts and phone calls (some long, some short) and so very much more - he touched so many lives. I will always remember how so many of our conversations included the phrase "It's a twin thing" and he had a shirt made for me ..our thoughts ran parallel 99% of the time.

I've moved classmate comments about James Lunn's passing from the Message Forum to the In Memory site. 

From Jay Siegall:

Kathy: so sorry for your loss! I don’t recall you or Jim but thank you for your loving tribute of your brother Jim. We mourn the loss of all members of ETHS class of 64.!!


From Pat Richey (Wanzenberg):


Kathy I am so sorry for your loss and I am also sorry that I never got to know your brother.  May your wonderful memories carry you forward.

Best Wishes to you Pat Richey Wanzenberg


From Stephen Gerth:

Kathy -  I am so sorry for your loss.  Condolances to you and the family.  And I send a grateful thank you to Jim for his service and devotion to our great nation.  May he rest in peace.


From Thomas Starck:


I am so sorry to hear of Jim's passing too soon.  I remember hanging with him on occasion during high school.  He had a great sense of humor.  I know the two of you have always been very close. Being a private person as you said, I wondered what became of him after high school. It appears he led a good life surrounded by people who loved him.  I too want to thank him for his service to his country as many of us did. Coming of age in the 60's, many of us embraced the ideals of service to our country and making the world a better place. It appears he did both. May he rest in peace.


From Vernon Neece:

Dear Kathy,

My deepest sympathy to you on the loss of your twin brother.  As a Vietnam vet myself, I wish to express my appreciation for his service to our country.  My condolences to your entire family.  May your brother rest in peace.


From Jacqueline Clare (Louis):

My deepest sympathy to you Kathy. Your twin sounds like an amazining person and I too hope all your living memories will comfort you in your grieving process. Thank you for sharing the need and his story. Rest In Peace Jim.
