One-Time Prominent North Powder Man Leaves Many Friends – Burial in Portland, Saturday
Andrew O. Lun, for many years prominent in business circles in this place, but more recently of Portland, passed away in the latter place Thursday, September 13, friends of the former resident were grieved to learn early this week. He had been in the Odd Fellows home for some years. Funeral services were conducted the Saturday following in the Rose City with burial in the Rosette cemetery there.
North Powder people will remember Mr. Lun as a long time resident here. He came to the town in 1886 or 1887 from either Idaho or Wyoming and was in the employ of the Oregon Lumber company, when that concern under David Eccles had a mill on Wolf Creek and Tucker flat. He was again in their employ in Baker from 1905 to 1907.
He was president of the North Powder State bank. He owned the place now the home of H.A. Monday, together with the land occupied by the Pacific Fruit express company houses and pond, as well as the Johnson ice plant and pond, and the land upon which the big house occupied by Carl Johanson stands, he having built the dwelling as his home, about 1906, it is said by older residents there. He was North Powder’s big ice dealer and sold the ground and his plant to the P.F.E. about 1909 or 1909.
All five of his children are believed to survive him: Andrew O. Lun Jr., for a number of years a member of the United States army flying service and stationed at Mitchell field, Long island, New York; Mrs. Agnes Olson, Spokane; Mrs. Emma Collins, Bonneville; Lilliam Lun, Portland or Troutdale; Iris, whose married name could not be learned but who is said to reside in Denver.
