Joseph William Lundy


 On March 30, 2017, Joseph William Lundy of Falls Church, Virginia, quietly passed away in his home after a prolonged illness.                                                        

Joe was a medic in the Air Force during Viet Nam and proudly continued his military career by going into the Army after Viet Nam.  After his military service, Joe answered still yet another calling to help others by working as a senior parole case manager for the DC Department of Corrections, serving first at Lorton Prison and then at the maximum security area of the DC jail.  In this role, he was a substance abuse and family counselor.  As busy as he was, Joe was always intent on learning, thus obtaining his bachelors and masters degrees while working for the Department of Corrections.    

He is survived by his loving wife, Wanda, his children Joseph (Oklahoma City, OK) and Melissa and David (Woodbridge, VA), his step-children, Patrick and Shawn and wife Alexandra (New Albany, IN) and 3 grandchildren.

Friends received 2:00- 6:00PM on Sunday, April 9 at Advent Funeral Services in Falls Church. Graveside services and interment with military honors will be held at Quantico National Cemetery, 18424 Joplin Road, Triangle, Virginia on Monday, April 10 at 2:00 PM. Family and friends may elect to go directly to the cemetery or join a procession leaving from the funeral home on Monday at 12:30 PM.   

A Memorial Service celebrating Joe’s life will be held at Rays of Healing Church at a later date to be announced.

    Dear Dad,

    I love and miss you so very much! It is not the same without you to talk to. I know that you are and always will be looking down on us.

    I hope that we made you proud with your services and know that we did this all together as a family. A family not divided but as one and will forever remain that way.

    You were loved by many people and touched so many lives. I am so proud of you and all that you accomplished over the years.

    I am and will always be “my father’s daughter,” full of strength and the ability to move forward and handle situations when other’s can’t or require help and guidance. I am proud to have those attributes among many other’s that you instilled in me.

    We will have a more informal Memorial Service for you soon, where we can laugh, tell stories and sing some of your favorite songs! I will sing Amazing Grace myself in your honor. We will CELEBRATE your life and there will be many people there to speak, show tribute and honor you. It will be a good “Irish” sendoff as well!

    No matter what, I will always be your “Pumpkin” and little girl.

    I love you with all of my heart and soul Daddy.

    Love Always and Forever,
