November 28, 2008|By FREDERICK N. RASMUSSEN

Arthur Eugene "Ott" Lundvall Jr., a retired Baltimore Gas & Electric Co. executive, died of complications from Parkinson's disease Nov. 19 at Roland Park Place. The former longtime Homeland resident was 85.

Mr. Lundvall was born in Baltimore and raised on York Court in Guilford.

He was a 1940 graduate of Polytechnic Institute and entered the University of Maryland, College Park.

He left college and enlisted in the Army during World War II. He attained the rank of lieutenant and served in the Philippines.

After the war, he returned to the University of Maryland, where he earned a bachelor's degree in engineering in 1950 and was an All-American lacrosse player.

He began his career with BGE in 1950, and at the time of his retirement in 1987, he was vice president of fossil and nuclear energy.

Mr. Lundvall had been an avid sailor all of his life and was 16 when he built his first boat in his family's garage.

He sailed the bay for many years aboard the Vega, his 38-foot Rhodes Swiftsure sailboat.

"Whenever he was on a boat, that's what he really wanted to do," said his daughter, Anne L. Cornell of Sparks.

He was a member of Brown Memorial Presbyterian Church, where services were held Monday.

Also surviving are his wife of 61 years, the former Janet Rossman; two sons, Robert E. Lundvall of Annapolis and Richard G. Lundvall of Richmond, Va.; a brother, Eric Lundvall of Murrells Inlet, S.C.; three sisters, Dorothy Lundvall of Shaker Heights, Ohio; Marjorie Level of Tampa, Fla.; and Ellen Meyers of New Jersey; and three grandchildren.
