Michael Joseph Lund
May 11, 1999 ~ June 25, 2023
Michael Joseph “Mike” Lund, age 24, of Hermitage passed away June 25, 2023. Mike was a bright star in this often-difficult world and will be missed by many. Mike grew up in Hermitage, and started developing his love for music while attending DuPont Tyler Middle School where he played in the band. He joined the McGavock High School Marching Band during his freshman year of high school. He marched the Baritone and played the Trombone in the Wind Ensemble. He developed many great friendships while in the band. Mike not only loved to play music, but he also loved listening to music. He enjoyed most genres and was able to share his talent and musical prowess with the world. Mike and Shelby were soulmates. He loved her very much. They had so many plans together. You would not see Shelby without seeing Mike. Mike also loved to play video games online with his friends and “just be silly”. He really loved to make people laugh, had a kind loving heart, and helped others, especially his friend when they were hurt or had a problem. He would give the shirt off his back if he saw a friend in need. Mike was also a very big animal lover. If there was an animal in need, he would take it in and give it the love and care that it needed. Every time his mother turned around; he would bring another pet home. While Mike would hate the word “different” and swore that he was practically unknown, he was loved by so many families and friends. He never met a stranger and always focused on creating a connection and smiling with anyone he encountered. Mike was just one of those types of people. Mike was survived by mother Kathy Lund, soulmate Shelby McCullen, siblings, Darrell (Melissa) Wiggins, Adam (Paula) Lund, Brittany (Derrek) Chilson, Christopher (Cassidy) Chaffin, aunts and uncle, Gina (Mike) Gunter, Sue Richardson, John (Traci) Singleton, Jeff ( Mary) Singleton, Pat Lund, grandparents, Maurine Singleton, Janice Lund, great grandparent, Claudine Malone, Dorothy Singleton, Nieces & Nephews Mikayla Lund, Olivia Wiggins, Bradley Chaffin, Sophia Chaffin, & Christopher Chaffin Jr. And many dear friends.
