Petaluma resident Mark E. Lund’s long career in the restaurant industry started at age 10, when he started working as a dish washer at Showers Café.

Mr. Lund died on Sept. 26, 2012 in San Rafael after a brief illness. He was 59.

Born in Santa Rosa, Mr. Lund was raised and educated in Petaluma, graduating from Petaluma High School.

He worked with his father, Milton E. Lund, at the Adobe Room, Lund’s Cafe on Petaluma Boulevard, which his father, Milton E. Lund, operated for many years, and the Petaluma Bowling Alley. Mr. Lund eventually returned to work at Lund’s Café with his wife, Sandra.

Mr. Lund sold the café to Jerry Schwartz, former owner of Jerome’s Barbecue, around 2005, and it was renamed the Boulevard Cafe.

After departing the restaurant business, Mr. Lund set out in a new direction and became a bus driver for the Marin Airporter.

In his spare time, he enjoyed golfing and bowling.

He is survived by his children, Trevor Lund, Miles Lund, Kayce Lund and Amanda Riley; grandchildren; and the mother of his children, Sandra Chisham. He was predeceased by his parents, Betty and Milton Lund; and his brother, Craig Lund.

Memorial services were held earlier this week.
