For Ivor Lund, Fort St. James is home.

The happy go lucky Lund, arrived in the Fort from Williams Lake in 1970 with his wife Sharon.

“I worked for Canfor when I arrived here,” Lund said.

Lund worked at the mill for 20 years.

Prior to that, the couple lived in various places including Quesnel and Wells in British Columbia.

Lund, originally from Rabbit Lake, Saskatchewan, grew up with two brothers and two sisters.

Along with his wife, now married 57 years, the couple raised two girls and one son in Fort St. James. They also have six grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

“This is a good place to raise children,” Lund said. “The lake is beautiful and there is so much outdoor recreation available for the kids.

Lund recalls spending lots of time on the water, picnicking and camping with his wife and children.

And over the years, Lund has seen and also assisted with many changes in town.

“I helped build the new curling rink and the golf course in town. Back then, it was all about volunteers. We all worked together,” Lund said.

Lund also enjoyed skiing, curling and playing hockey in the Fort and today he still keeps fit with a game of bocce, golf and curling.

As Lund looks out onto Stuart Lake from his home, he looks forward to another season of curling with friends.

“There are so many great people here,” Lund said.

“We’ve made so many friends over the years, life lasting friends.”
