Richard E. Lundahl, 88, of Meadville, PA, passed away Friday, September 8, 2023, at Meadville Medical Center.


Richard was born in Warren, PA, on February 7, 1935, a son of the late Elmer T. and Dorothea Erickson Lundahl.


On May 3, 1958, Richard married Jean Carol Nystrom at First Presbyterian Church, Meadville, who survives.


Richard attended First Presbyterian Church, Meadville, and, while growing up, was affiliated with St Paul Lutheran Church in Warren, PA.


Richard was a 1953 graduate of Warren High School where he was a member of the basketball team. He earned his bachelor’s degree in 1957 from Grove City College. From 1958-1960 Richard served his country honorably as a member of the US Air Force in Prestwick, Scotland.  For nearly 14 years Richard was employed by the American Viscose/FMC as an Industrial Engineer. In the mid 1970's he purchased the Isaly's Store on North St. For the next 20 years he became known as "Mr. Isaly" to countless students who frequented the store before and after school. He was a huge fan and supporter of Allegheny College sports and enjoyed attending their athletic events.  In his younger years he was an avid skier.


In addition to his wife, Jean, of 65 years, Richard is survived by two sons: Paul R. Lundahl (Claudia) of Dublin, OH, and Dr. Robert E. Lundahl (Kimberly Samson) of San Francisco, CA. Also, he is survived by a sister, Barbara Reese, of Sun City Center, FL, and a brother-in-law, Donald Nystrom, of Pittsburgh.
