I remember first meeting Lynn at his home, around 1987, when he invited his son-in-law, Jim, and me to hunt on his land. He put Jim and me in positions, and then took the assignment of walking toward us, to drive the deer our way. "That's gutsy," I remember thinking, "I wouldn't want to do that." "Now listen, I don't look anything like a deer, so don't mistake me for one!" Lynn cautioned! We didn't get a deer that day, not even a shot, but I was impressed with Lynn's kindness to me, and his love for the outdoors. I'm writing now with sympathy to Lynn's family, especially Renee and Gayle, in the loss of dad, and praying for your hope to be fixed on the abundance of God's steadfast love (Psalm 5:7).
Lynn was a generous good cook.I remember him coming to Seisholtzville Fire Company to show the Ladies Auxiliary how he made chicken pot pie, rolling his own noodle dough. He also made the best creamiest horseradish. A nice neighbor, he will be missed.
During prayer, Lynn was always thankful for each day, giving thanks for God's creation and everyone's safety. He noticed and appreciated the things in life that may often be overlooked. I enjoyed listening and learning from him to take in each and every moment. Thank you Lynn. You are greatly missed.
