Funeral service for Carter B. Amundson, known as Bud by his friends, was held Saturday at Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Reardan with Pastor Gerhard Reitz officiating. Burial followed at the Reardan cemetery. The longtime Reardan resident passed away November 6 at Lincoln Hospital. Born September 10, 1917 at Lead, SD, to Arthur and Lura Amundson, his early years were spent in Rapid City, SD. The family moved to Spokane in the late 1920s and he graduated from North Central High School there in 1936. He spent his summers at his grandfather's logging camp near Naples, Idaho. Mr. Amundson enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1939 at Fort Bliss, Texas. Originally in a cavalry unit, he transferred to the Air Corps Unit and saw active duty in World War II in both the European and Japanese theaters. He was discharged in 1945 at Fort Lewis, Wash., and went on to operate a gas station in Reardan. On August 22, 1946, he married Alvina Hansen at the Hansen family home in Reardan. Mr. Amundson rejoined the U.S. Air Force in 1949 at the Spokane Air Base. He saw active duty during the Korean War. During his military career, he was stationed at Travis Air Force Base, Vallejo, Calif.; Mountain Home AFB, Mountain Home, Idaho; Goose Bay, Labrador Canada; and Larson AFB, Moses Lake, Wash. Retiring from the Air Force in December 1963, Mr. Amundson was a recipient of the Bronze Star medal. Mr. Amundson and his family moved to Reardan in January 1964. He was employed by the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office in Davenport as deputy until his retirement in June 1985. He was a longtime of the Reardan Volunteer Fire Department and the Reardan American Legion post. He is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, John and Velma Amundson of Bowbells, ND; his daughter and son-in-law, Jean Marie and Reynold Schwabe of Kansas City, MO; and three grandchildren, Andra and Joshua Amundson of Bowbells, and Nathan Schwabe of Kansas City. He was preceded in death by his wife. Strate Funeral Home in Davenport handled the arrangements. [Davenport Times; November 14, 1991]
