Edward Jundt, 84, of Fargo, ND, died May 11, 2015 at the Veterans Administration Hospital after a short battle with cancer. Edward was born August 18, 1930 to Joseph and Margaret (Goetz) Jundt in McHenry County on a farm eleven miles south of Berwick, ND. He attended country school in Berwick until his family moved to Rugby. In 1948 he worked for Boeing AirCraft in Seattle, Washington until he joined the Army in January 1949. In 1951 he worked on an oil drilling rig north of Rugby.

He married Bernadine Volk August 20, 1951 at Little Flower Catholic Church in Rugby. The Army drafted him back in October 1951, had him spend 80 hours with the 101st Airborne, then shipped out to Okinawa for 20 months.
