He was born in Denver to Alf and Vera (Edwards) Lundberg. He graduated from the University of Colorado in Boulder in 1961 with a bachelor's degree in accounting and three years of mathematics.

In 1962, at the beginning of the space race, he was hired by RCA at Cape Canaveral to work as a data reduction mathematician. He and his family witnessed the launch of John Glenn's historic first orbital mission.

In 1965, the family moved to Lompoc, Calif., and he worked at the Western Space and Missile Center at Vandenberg Air Force Base. He was involved with the update of the ballistic missile early warning system.

Mr. Lundberg retired in 1995, and he and his wife moved to Cedaredge. He enjoyed fishing, being involved with his wife in several organizations, boating with his grandchildren and going for daily drives with his dogs.

He is survived by his children, Janice, Cheryl, Karen, Thane and Donald; eight grandchildren; and two sisters, Phyllis Quick of Colorado Springs and Bonnie Savagion of Holiday, Fla.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Donald Lundberg.
