MURRAY—Andrew Lundquist, 67, 4734 Hanauer st., Murray, long time Murray police officer, died in a Salt Lake hospital Wednesday at 5:55 a.m. of a cerebral hemorrhage.

Appointed Murray police chief in 1930, Mr. Lundquist served until 1944 when he became a Salt Lake county-deputy sheriff. In 1946 he was named Murray health officer, the position he held at the time of his death.

Interested in Safety

Widely known for his police work, he was especially interested in traffic safety and did much to make the Arlington school crossings on South State safer.

He was awarded the Murray Eagles first good citizens award. Several national magazines had carried articles on his police work.

Mr. Lundquist, known to hundreds of Murray children as "Andy," devoted much of his time to youth activities.

Born in Malmo, Sweden, Oct. 8, 1883, he was a son of Nels and Margaret Olson Lundquist. At three years of age he came to the United States. He married Jennie Bertelson in Salt Lake City Feb 10, 1903.

Feed Grain Business

Prior to becoming police chief, Mr. Lundquist engaged in the feed and grain business in Murray.

He was a charter member and past worthy president of Murray aerie No. 1760, Fraternal Order of Eagles, and was a member of Progress lodge No. 22, F. and A. M., member of the Utah consistory, Scottish Rite, and El Kalah temple, Mystic Shrine.

Mr. Lundquist also was a member of the Mahogany camp, Woodmen of the World, and a former member of Murray Lions club and International Order of Odd Fellows.

Survivors include his widow, a sister, Mrs. Olga Thone, Murray, and several nieces and nephews.
