(August 6, 1936 – February 14, 2021)

Donald Wheatley Lundry, a con-running fan, found fandom in 1967. He lived in the New York-New Jersey area for much of his life and was a member of the Lunarians.

He chaired the 7 in '77 Worldcon bid and the consequent convention, SunCon, the 1977 Worldcon in Miami, FL. His late wife, Grace Lundry, served as his effective co-chair.

He worked on many Worldcons and chaired Lunacon 15 and Lunacon 19. He was active in organizing charter flights to overseas Worldcons (Aussiecon and Heicon) when that was a big fannish money-saver. The Aussiecon Flyer was the associated trip fanzine.

In mundane life, he was a software engineer and manager, as well as a U.S. Army Reservist in the Signal Corps for some 30 years, achieving the rank of Colonel. He also collected and restored old pianos and organs. After Grace’s death in 2003, he married Peggy Davis in 2009.
