Lynn worked for Xerox for 32 years and retired in 2005.
He was a member of St. John Lutheran Church, Royal and was a veteran of the U.S. Navy serving as a Seabee in Vietnam.
Lynn loved his family and was so proud of the lives they have created for themselves. He loved his grandkids and was very proud of their accomplishments in school and sports, but more so for just being the great kids that they are. Give Lynn a challenge and he would take it. He could find a way to fix anything. Last, but definitely not least, he loved his dog Murphy.
Memorials may be made to the donor's choice.
