"The passing of Pat Lund makes my heart ache for the family and for our community. He was a legend for local sports. Think of the generations of student athletes and coaches he was a part of in southeast Minnesota. I will always remember Pat’s roar in the newsroom at KTTC for always pushing for greatness as a team and no compromising. I will also remember the gentle heart of Pat and the millions of laughs we shared together and his love for our community. Pat had a signature saying that still resonates with me…is life all work and worry? No, it’s not! Live everyday to the fullest. That was in Pat’s playback book to the very end. Cheers my friend with much love and respect," said Ken.
