Obituary of Richard Gunderson

Richard Gunderson died February 12, 2021, after a battle with cancer. He was proceeded in death by his mother Marjorie Gunderson, father George Gunderson, and brother Stuart Gunderson.


Rick is survived by his brother Tom (Barb) Gunderson, his two children Martin (Lynne) Gunderson, Amy (Terry) Olson Gunderson, and four wonderful grandchildren. He is further survived by a collection of friends from the many different times of his life and the areas where he lived.


Rick loved the river running through the family farm and his house overlooking the ocean. He would want you all to sit, take in the view, and eat a peanut butter cup. He had several sweet vices; take your pick of cookies, chocolate cake, ice cream, and key lime pie. Enjoy the one that makes you happiest.


In accordance with Rick’s wishes, no funeral will be held. The family asks that you share interesting, memorable stories of Rick. Rick lived in different areas during his life and we would enjoy learning more about the people he called friends.
