He served his country in the Army and was discharged as a Captain. He was united in marriage to Nancy McDonald in New Mexico following his service and the couple started their new life in Paw Paw after he accepted an offer to teach. Lynn retired after 33.5 years as a math teacher and was also a highly respected and loved baseball, basketball and assistant football coach. In addition, he taught golf and was a driver’s education instructor for many years. Lynn supported his community and was a longtime member of the Paw Paw Lions Club. He had a strong faith and relationship with the Lord, and his love and dedication to his family was his greatest joy. He was active at Oakland Drive Church of Christ, where he taught Sunday school, but most recently, he was an active member of Covey Hill Baptist Church in Paw Paw. Lynn was an avid sports fan and golf was his passion. He followed all of Detroit’s professional sports teams closely, never missing a game. His passions will be shared and remembered fondly as well as his unprecedented love for the Lord and his devoted family.
