Rockford historian Jon Lundin is dead

I received word a few minutes ago that Rockford historian Jon Lundin died suddenly last night.

Lundin, the author of "Rockford -- An Illustrated History," of which there were several editions, was president of the Abilities Center and a community activist.

The Register Star Web site at rrstar.com likely will have details of Lundin's passing later this morning.

UPDATE: The Register Star has a nice piece on Lundin here.

Jon was a great fellow, one of the true bright spots among Rockford's leaders. He loved Toad Hall and old buildings and, most of all, helping people.

Rest in peace...

This is a real loss for the Rockford community. He did so much and with no ego.
