A TRIBUTE TO ARTHUR LUNDRIGAN

ARTHUR LUNDRIGAN remembered as a "true gentleman" by Machelle Curtis, Star Staff Writer A member of one of Newfoundland's most prominent families, credited with building much of the province's infrastructure, died on Monday.

Arthur Lundrigan, 77, who had been residing at his home in Steady Brook, died at the Western Memorial Regional Hospital following a lengthy illness.

Mr. Lundrigan, along with his brother Harold, were inducted last week into the Newfoundland and Labrador Business Hall of Fame.

Their company, Lundrigans, was at one time considered to be among the province's largest employers.

The family's various business ventures included: the sawmill and lumber company started in the 1930s, and they were one of the key players in the construction of the Trans-Canada Highway.

The company's highway work caused Steady Brook Mayor Trevor Bennett to recall some of his first encounters with the local businessman.

While saddened by the news, Mayor Bennett feels fortunate to have known Mr. Lundrigan for many years, and has vivid memories of the late 1950s when the highway to the Northern Peninsula was under construction.

He remembers the numerous trips the city businessman and other dignitaries made to the area at the time and said Mr. Lundrigan's respect and treatment of people is what stood out the most.

"My family owned and operated a hotel in the area and Art used to visit with other dignitaries, and what I remember most was how much of a gentleman he always was," he said. "After everyone was served, I remember that he would always come back to the staff and say thank you and that meant more than any amount of tip. He certainly was the personification of a true gentleman and he will certainly be remembered that way."

Mayor Dave Luther expressed his sympathy to the Lundrigan family on behalf of the City of Corner Brook, and added it was indeed a sad time to lose someone of such caliber.

"Arthur Lundrigan was one of the mainstays of the city of Corner Brook and his family helped build this city as much as the paper mill did," the mayor noted. "This is a blow to the community and the city sends its sympathies to the family, we know it has been a very difficult time for them."

Mayor Luther also made reference to both Arthur and his brother Harold's induction into the provincial business Hall of Fame.

"It is important to note they weren't just local or provincial business leaders, but were known on the international market with ties all over the world," he said.

Dr. Noel Murphy, a good friend and business associate of Mr. Lundrigan's, said while they have both held positions with the Humber Valley Broadcasting Company for several years, it will be the friendship that he will miss the most.

"I have known Arthur for over 50 years, as both a friend and business associate, and while I was very proud to have him as a business associate it is his friendship that I have valued and enjoyed immensely over the years," he said.

Dr. Murphy, echoing the sentiments of Mayor Luther, said Mr. Lundrigan and his family contributed a lot to the community and were very much responsible for bringing great recognition to the city through their various business dealings around the world.

"He was a great community person who did a tremendous amount quietly without any fanfare, and he donated not only money but also his time to various activities," he added. "We should also remember that he was most certainly one of the leading business people of the century in this province."

Gerry Byrne, one of the people on hand to see Mr. Lundrigan's induction last week, said it was a very fitting tribute to a man who has contributed so much to the province.

Byrne, the Liberal Commons member for Humber-St. Barbe-Baie Verte, said it is important to remember that his legacy does not end today.

"Mr. Lundrigan's legacy is one that does not end with his death, but rather one that lives on to be reflected on by all communities in this province in the years ahead," he said. "The footprints that he has set, both by his strong participation and contribution to the community as well as business, will be felt for sometime to come."

Mr. Lundrigan is predeceased by his parents William J. and Naomi Lundrigan and is survived by his wife Ida, daughters Ingrid, Astrid, Sigrid, and Gudrid, 11 grandchildren, brothers Max, Harold, William, and Thomas as well as sisters Eva Jennings, Evelyn Brown, Mary Finn, Ruby Gullage, Jean Wilson, Josephine Kennedy and Effie Humble.
