Rasmus was baptized on 10 October 1856 in Sweden. Soon after his baptism, he converted the Lundberg family, including his future wife, to his new faith. They all immigrated to America and arrived in Salt Lake City on 31 October 1862. Rasmus was endowed on 7 March 1863 in the Endowment House (see Bernston, “History of Laura Lundberg,” 1).

He and his wife, Laura Lundberg, settled in Logan, Cache County. They attended the Logan Fourth Ward. Rasmus supported his family by working as a cabinetmaker. Family members recall that he built a casket for his father-in-law (see Bernston, “History of Laura Lundberg,” 1).

In 1880 Rasmus accepted a mission call to Scandinavia. He arrived in Copenhagen on 14 September 1880, and was assigned to labor in the Göteborg Conference. After completing an honorable mission, he departed from Copenhagen on 28 August 1882 aboard the steamer Argo (see Jenson, History of the Scandinavian Mission, 250–51, 265). He died in 1903 in Logan at age sixty-nine.
