Lavere G. Lund
Lavere G. Lund passed away at his home in Santa Ynez on August 22, 2014, just days after his 82nd Birthday. His passing came after a long and courageous battle with cancer. He will be remembered for his deep love of family and the passion for life he displayed every day. He had a profound impact on all the people in his life. After serving in the U.S. Coast Guard during the Korean War, Lavere attended Montana University, where he graduated in 1958 with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing. Furthering his education, he attended the University of Washington where he received a Masters Degree in Business. Lavere's work ethic was unparalleled. A successful entrepreneur throughout his life, he started and ran numerous business enterprises all over the country. From the management of drugstore chains, to the manufacture of loudspeakers, and the importation of electronics, he had a fascinating and varied career. Most recently, he retired as the Chairman and CEO of KLH Audio Systems, a prominent consumer electronics company.
He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Connie; his two daughters, Cherise and Pamela; his grandson, Ian; and brother, Erik. We will miss him so very much.
Lavere did not wish to have a funeral, but rather, hoped that people would simply remember him and celebrate his life. In lieu of flowers, his family kindly requests that remembrances & contributions be made in memory of Lavere Lund to: CALM (Child Abuse Listening & Mediation) 1236 Chapala Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101; calmforkids.org
