We are saddened by the news of former OBA President Lynn Lundquist’s passing recently. He was 78.
A farmer, teacher and rancher, Lundquist was OBA’s founding president. He was first elected to the Oregon legislature in 1994 and became speaker in 1997. He retired in 2007 after leading OBA, which was founded in 2001. He was then elected in 2008 to the Crook County Commission where he served one term.
In 2008, OBA recognized Lynn with the Statesman of the Year Award.

Tom Kelly, President Neil Kelly/Founder of OBA said, simply, “Lynn was one of the greatest Oregonians I’ve ever known. His commitment to education was so pure and deep, as one person he helped change the priorities of our state.”
