Jonathan W. Lunn, Jr., age 32, of Bridgewater, died suddenly Saturday, April 4, 2015. Jonathan was born in Taunton and raised in Cape Cod, the loving son of Jonathan W. Lunn, Sr. of Cape Cod, and Frances D. (Zadrozny) Robichaud and her husband Chris of Fall River.

A 2002 graduate of Lower Cape Regional Technical High School, Jonathan went on to study business at Cape Cod Community College. Shortly after graduation, Jonathan enlisted in the United States Marine Corps Reserve. He served one tour in Iraq, receiving several service medals.

                                                                         

Jonathan had been a self-employed auto mechanic, and worked at Complete Auto in Hyannis for more than 15 years. As an accomplished mechanic, Jonathan took 1st place in a motor rebuilding competition and went on to compete in several others. His greatest joys in life were his family, cars, and being a great mentor. Jonathan will be remembered as funny, loving, and giving but most importantly as being an incredible dad.

In addition to his parents, Jonathan is survived by his loving fiancé Rachel Eldridge of Bridgewater; his daughters, Alawna-Lei Lunn of Tennessee, and Angela and Aleicia Lunn of Bridgewater; his siblings, Jamie A. Weldin of Fall River, Lawrence C. Adams and his wife Briana of North Carolina, Kelsey M. Lunn of Fitchburg, Brent Robichaud, and Franchesca S. Rolon of Fall River. Jonathan also leaves a nephew Anthony Lunn and three nieces Nissia Weldin-Lunn, Gloria Weldin, and Aleaya Weldin all of Fall River. He was predeceased by his nephew Jeremiah Weldin.

Jonathan was the grandson of Frances D. Denoncourt and her husband Decker of Arizona, the late Francis J. Zadrozny, and Betty-Jean Lunn. He leaves his aunts Catherine Campbell and husband Timothy, Susan DeCosta, and uncles Daniel and Burton Lunn. He also leaves many  cousins including Katie King, Angeliza Campbell, and Shellie Rumery.

A memorial gathering was held May 16, 2015 at the VFW Post 2125 in Bridgewater, MA

From Jon's cousin  Katie King:

Jon Jon's memorial was beautiful,  yet sad. Rough day, but we all made it through. Few tears, good laughs and most of all we were there to remember and honor Jonathan Lunn. I thank everyone who showed up and brought something.

Family is everything.

 


Cousin Katie [Catherine Nicole] King posted this on Jon's wall. 

This flag was contributed by Carl 'Gunny' Jackson from one Marine to another. Gunny served two tours in Vietnam and Jon served in Iraq.
Semper Fi.

Jon's cousin Katie King put this collage together. Most of the pictures are from the photos I had taken over the years. So glad to have these happy memories. 

Gunny wrote this poem about 'A Veteran'. Cathy donated this framed version to the VFW Post 2125. The VFW donated the hall for this memorial service held May 16, 2015.

Penny for your thoughts.....Angie had little cards so that friends and relatives could write a memory of Jonathan to give to Rachel.

Jamie and Jonny were game for any ride or anything. Roller coasters were too tame for them.

 

We had such a good time that summer. They stayed with us for a month in Reno.

So we challenged them with this ride. They were harnessed then hoisted up about 150 feet to their rear and had to release the cable themselves to come flying down through the uprights swinging like a pendulum until the momentum slowed down. Only one rule. You must keep your eyes open. And they did it!!

We could stick them in a hole in a rock to pose for a picture (Box Canyon somewhere in Utah)

Jon did not like this picture, but it's one of my favorites.

Taken at 29 Palms, CA a day or so before he was sent to Iraq.

 
Iraq: I believe Jon took these pictures

He didn't want to stop

Uncle Tim and Aunt Cathy had a surprise party june 10, 2006 for Jon the day he returned from Iraq.
It was also Tim's birthday and Katie's graduation party.

 


To distract Dian, I got her to pose for family photos. Grandpa Bob and Uncle Arthur went to the airport to pick up Jon and were just arriving. He went in the front door and dashed upstairs to shower and change after traveling for three days to get home from Iraq.
