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.

Memories Timeline


  1. I am a friend’s mother. The memory of Michael that will stay with me is that he has to be the most pleasant, polite and mannerly young person that I’ve ever been introduced to. He spent a lot of time at my house and was always willing to be helpful and kind. Hugs to you Michael!

  2. I remember one day I was really upset and he saw I was upset about something he stayed by my side as long as he could listened to my problems and helped me by making jokes and getting to laugh even if it annoyed me I to this day miss that!! You will always be amazing and blessing in my life!!

  3. I am so sorry to hear, I will keep the family in my prayers. Michael was one of my bestfriends he was one of a kind always had us in adventures. I have tons of memories with him, I’ll cherish our favorite boy band songs by back street boys and NSYNC. I have so many memories with Michael one time in highschool I chose to go walk to McDonald’s for dinner instead of seeing my highschool boyfriend. Because food with bestfriend sounded better then starve and be with my boyfriend lol. Michael’s house was fun to hang with our group. He gave great advice and when ever I was sad Michael was always there to pick me up and drive me and our crew around davidson county listening to our favorite songs. I’ll never forget Michael pulling up in my driveway once blasting 5sos because he knew it was my favorite band. Another funny memory me and Michael would show the younger grades in highschool underneath the school and once above the theater Michael knew all the locations around our school. We have great band memories every contest we won michael and I would celebrate it by me getting a piggyback ride lol even shead tears winning 3rd place at COC. Michael made sure I had a smile on my face and I’m so glad I got to cherish all these memories with him and I wish I could still make more. RIP Sweet Michael

  5. Michael, love to go to the movies with me to see diary of a Wimpy kid we sell several adventures of the wimpy kid! Michael also love to go to the Hermitage, Andrew Jackson’s house, I loved all the houses such as a Tulip grove mansion, and the Grassmere mansion. I am his grandmother, Janice Lund and I am missing him already so much. I love him to the moon and back. He had $1 million smile and a good bear hug.

  6. Michael always had my back, we were so much more than just brothers, we were best friends! He always knew he could call me when he needed me, and boy did he call, but I wouldn’t have wanted any other way. I learned so much from him and I don’t even know if he knew. I love you so much bro and you’ll never be forgot! I’ll alway make sure there’s a seat at my house for you!

  7. Michael loved his family so much, when he would come to our house his niece would love to play tea party with him! I would tell her he was coming and she would rush to set it up! He also shared close birthdays with another niece and me, our birthdays were four days apart, so there are so many memories of spending our birthdays together!

  8. there was so many things I didn’t get to tell you and I hope you knew how much I love you and cared for you. I’m so happy god gave me these few years with you, you literally showed me how to love myself and made me a better person, you made me whole again. I always wanted to spend every moment I had a chance to with you. If I wasn’t around you I wasn’t complete. I don’t understand why God wanted you so soon but he must have a good reason. You’re my everything and I told you that all the time and I hope you knew I meant every I love you, because I did. Michael you was an amazing person and you literally changed me and made me happy again. You found me when I was so lost and it was such a blessing for me. We had so many good memories together but there will never be enough memories because I planned on so much more for us. I will cherish every moment we had together, good or bad because it made us closer and stronger. And I will always take care of our lil fur baby because I knew how much you loved him. You will never leave my heart and I will forever be in yours. This world will never be the same without you. You was my other half and this is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to go through but I feel you watching over my shoulder and I will stay strong for you baby. Me and lil flash (stinky) love and miss you so much.❤️

  9. You always loved candles and would always buy me some when we still had several. May this candle bring you light and burn forever in your presence.

  10. Michael was like a son to me We shared a lot of memories going places with him and Shelby I will miss his bubbly loving personality I’m so heartbroken and so sad for the pain his family is going through he will aways beloved and remembered in Tim, Rhonda and Shelby Mccullens hearts

  11. Michael was the first to except me into the family years ago. He didn’t look at me like an outsider. He loved me because his brother loved me. So many memories there are to share but my absolute favorite was when I was giving birth to my daughter. He was there the whole time but when it was time for me to push we kicked him out. Then a little bit went by and we looked out the window to him trying to see in the window from the waiting room. He was always there even if you I didn’t want him to be. He drove me absolutely insane but what I would give for you to be back here. We love you little bro.

  12. Aww Michael, There’s so much I wish I could say to you. You called me a couple weeks ago, but never left me a voicemail. I wish that you had, than I could hear your voice one last time. You were my brother for 20 years of your living years. But you will be my brother forever. I miss you. But I guess God needed another angel. We used to talk a lot when you were little and you would come to my house during breaks from school or snow days. We would listen to music and talk about different artists that we liked in the car on days I would pick you up from band practice. I have so many memories of us even cooking together. I’d make dinner and I would have you help, so you could take some back home to Mom. Me coming to the football games and seating with Mom watching you play your instrument. You were so excited and proud to be in the marching band. I never had siblings growing up. But with coming into this family I gained two amazing brothers. I couldn’t be more grateful. You always did everything in your power to make my Olivia laugh and smile. She loved you from day one. And I know you loved her too. I’m going to miss the bond you two shared. I love you my little brother! I’m sure I’m missing some things, but I can’t think of them now. Look out for us will you. Tell Uncle Bobby, Papa and Uncle Ken we miss them too. If you see my grandparents will you tell them I miss them also.
