Tuesday hundreds of people are expected to come out and remember former house speaker and community member Lynn Lundquist. His service is at The Powell Butte Christian Church. Pastor Glenn Bartnik has known Lundquist since the 1970's and will deliver the service –Bartnik was there at the home that morning when Lundquist died and says today, the family is coping...
"You know when a man dies suddenly it's tough to get your mind around it- but coming together and supporting and encouraging one another they are remembering the good times - and of course there are always tears because of the loss."
The service will be held at 11 a.m. Memorial contributions may be made to "The Kids Center" earmarked for Crook County or for "The Special Olympics" through Whispering Pines Funeral Home in Prineville. Lundquist was the Oregon House Speaker in 1997, and founded the Oregon Business Association. He was 78.
Bartnik says Lynn had a heart as "big as the outdoors".
