Mr. Lynn was loved by so many and didn’t mind helping anyone that needed help. He never met a stranger. He would give you the shirt off his back and would always, always tell you he loved you no matter what or where he was. Mr. Lynn loved God and his church family. He looked up to preacher Lindbergh Chavis. Mr. Lynn loved his family especially his nieces and nephews. As long as he had his family and friends, he was good. The simple things in life made him happy. Enjoying the outside, riding with Mr. Sid on the side by side, or walking to a neighbor’s house just to visit. Mr. Lynn was so sick, but he tried. Mr. Lynn would go and do odd end jobs to make him a couple dollars to get his cigarettes and what he needed. Mr. Lynn enjoyed doing things outside, but his health permitted him from doing a lot. Mr. Lynn was so loved and will certainly be missed.

The family will receive friends from 2-3 Friday, March 1, 2024 at Bakers Chapel Baptist Church.
