________________________
Robert Henderson Lundquist died at his home in Orem, Utah, on October 6, 2020, at the age of 89, after several years of Alzheimer’s Disease and recently suffering two strokes. He was born March 15, 1931, in Price, Utah, to Roland Crosby and Mary Katherine Henderson Lundquist. His family moved to Logan, where he attended kindergarten and later to Richfield, where he attended elementary school. They later moved to Kanab, where he graduated from high school. He had an older sister, Leila, and a younger brother, Kent.

After high school he attended the University of Utah, sang in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, then served in Sweden as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Upon returning home, he attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, where he met Kathleen Caseman. They married in the Salt Lake Temple on August 26, 1955, and both graduated from BYU in 1956. Bob earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting, with a minor in Radio and TV Communications, and was commissioned as a 2nd Lt. in the USAF Reserves. He then served two years active duty in the Air Force as a Radar Weapons Controller in the Air Defense Command in Florida, Arizona and Michigan, later serving several more years as a Major in the USAF Reserves at Hill AFB, UT.

He has been employed as an Accountant, Office Manager in the home construction business, business systems sales, and was self-employed in computer hardware and software system design and development for many years. His major career “claim to fame” was the design and development of the Compu-timer, the first microprocessor-based production management system, in the late 1970s. The Compu-timer system is on display at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC. He was also issued multiple U.S. and foreign patents for business, sport, and household items.

A lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Bob served as a Missionary, Branch President, Bishop, member of the Tabernacle Choir, Ward Choir Director, volunteer at the Provo MTC and other leadership callings. He had a beautiful bass singing voice and had the privilege of singing for the Church in many countries of the world. While serving as a missionary in Sweden, he was recognized by the Swedish press for his singing.

Bob and Kathy have lived in Provo, Florida, Michigan, Arizona, Salt Lake, Ogden, North Ogden, Kaysville, Bountiful, Wyoming and most recently, Orem, UT. He is survived by his wife, Kathy, their 3 children and their spouses, Tracy Alder (Ron), Sue Widdison (Rick), Steve (Alecia), 11 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, his brother Kent (Karen) and many nieces and nephews and their families. He was predeceased by three grandchildren, his parents, his sister and her husband, his wife’s parents and her sister, brother and their spouses.

A public viewing will be held Saturday, October 10, 2020, from 10:30am - 11:30am, at Walker Sanderson Funeral Home, 646 East 800 North, Orem, UT.

I had the privilege of serving as a counselor to Robert when he was bishop of our married student ward at BYU. He was such a kind, warm, sincere person that he made a lifelong impression on me. I got to meet him again a couple times in the last few years, and it was wonderful to renew the friendship. He was one of those people that you just can't say enough good about! He will be missed.

Kathy,

Bill and I send our heart felt condolences to you and your family on Bob's passing. We have you in our prayers. May you feel God's love and His peace. I have fond memories of Bob both while living in the 16th ward with Bill and when Boyd Nance worked with Bob.

Dear Kathy and Family:
I am sorry that I could not attend Robert's service in person, however, I was there in spirit. I watched the service, and thought it was a great celebration of Robert's life.

Dear Kathy and Family:
I am greatly saddened and heart broken over the loss of Robert. I have very fond memories of your father, your mother and you kids.
Robert led a very good christian lifestyle, held himself to very high standards and raised his family to be devout members of the LDS church. He had a fun personality, and was a great signer/entertainer. Robert always had a friendly greeting for me, and I always enjoyed his company.
All that knew Robert, will be greatly enriched by his past friendship and we will continue to enjoy the family that he and his loving wife Kathy have created during their time together on earth.

May the Lord bless and keep you all,
Your Cousin, Ben D. Neiden
(I am out of state and will not be able to attend the services, but will participate on-line)
