RIP mr chandnois I know we will met in a better place Thank you for spending time with me on the phohe. that meant a great deal to me.you are still my favorite all time player.
My Dad was a rookie during Lynn's last season with the Steelers. I just told my father, Art, this news -- and he was deeply saddened about Lynn's passing. Dad just went on and on about how nice Lynn was to him and said he had the best looking "camel hair, cashmere full-length coat" you ever saw -- to go along with his movie star good looks! God Bless the Chadnois family.
So sorry for the lost of your father. Our prayers are with you and your family.

Paulette....My sincere condolences to you and your family. May you find comfort and solace in the warm and wonderful memories that you have created over the years. God bless you all in the days ahead.
Paulette, Our thought's and prayer's are with you.
I first met Lynn when I was a new Buyer at Chevrolet Mfg. and he was with Jessop Steel. What a pleasure and an honor to have known him. His humor and friendship at Chevrolet and Regional Purchasing was special for all of us who were associated with him. We will miss you "Chad".
I am very sorry for your loss.
To the entire Chandnois family:
I first heard Mr. Chandnois name from my high school Principal Peter Fusi. He told us what a great athlete Lynn was. Although they were fierce competitors (Fusi Northern Chandnois Central) they were able to join forces in East Lansing. Coach Fusi always spoke with such reverence about his old friend and teammate. Later in life I tried to arrange an interview with this colossal Michigan athlete. When I made contact with Lynn, he was not very receptive and seemed a bit disinterested. Who could blame him? I was a young broadcaster and Mr. Chandnois was a busy business executive by this time. I didn’t give up. I knew of this mans many accomplishments, both in sport and life. I wanted my radio audience to hear his story. So I did they only thing I could do, called in Fusi to run interference. Lynn Chandnois appeared on my show the next day.
Please know that my thoughts are with you during this most difficult time.
Lynda & John,
May the love of family and friends comfort you through this difficult time in the lost of your father. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Love...Norm & Cindy
thanks for the memories, an ardent steeler fan
Our family grew up in Pittsburgh and loved the Steelers. Lynn and his family lived up the street from us during those playing days. We all looked up to Lynn - he was tall, handsome, a great running back & returner for the Steelers....and he was a nice man. He was always taking the time to say "hello" and talk about the games, which was impressive for 7 to 10 year olds. Later in my career, I got to know Lynn calling on GM in Flint. He was exactly the same...always had time. Our deepest sympathy to the family. He was definitely "one of the good guys"!
Condolences to the families and friends of Mr. Lynn Chandnois. May you all throw your burden on our Heavenly Father and He will sustain you. Throw all your anxieties on Him because He cares......
Lynda & John So sorry for the loss of your Dad, What a legacy he left (online sites) read them all. Memories are precious and I know you have many to hold your family close during this time of grief. Love you Patti Siebert
With deepesty sympathy to the Chandnois Family.
I am a die hard Cowboys fan but I was so sorry to hear about Mr. Chandnois' death. May the God who grants endurance and comfort give you the strength to cope with his loss.
I am a die-hard STEELER fan now living in Columbus, OH.
Several years ago a friend's Mom died and upon cleaning her mother's house, my friend came across a bubble gum football card wrapped in plastic and in almost mint condition. Knowing how big a STEELER fan I am, she gave me the card. It was a Lynn Chandois card.
This remains one of my most prized pieces of all my STEELER memoribilia.
My heartfelt condolences to the entire Chandois family.
I actually remember Lynn Chandnois since I was about 3 years of age. I could not pronounce his last name correctly, so, I referred to him as Lynn Adnoise. He was a great player.
We will miss him very much. Had a lot of fun with him at Flint Central H.S. and seeing him at Fisher Body Grand Blank once in a while.
Lynda & Family,
Our heats go out to you. We are thinking of you in your time of sorrow.
I had the pleasure of being one of Lynn's therapists when he was in rehab. He was a pleasure to work with and a very special man. My deepest symathy to the family. Joann Goff (Fostrian Nursing and Rehab Center)
Sympathy & kindest regards to the Chandnois family and frields wherever they may be. Take care and God bless one and all.
Uncle Lynn you will be missed.
I had the pleasure of working with Lynn during his many years with Jessop Steel Co. Unless you checked his impressive stats, from ALL AMERICAN at State through the Steeler years, you would never know what a superb athlete Lynn was. Totally unassuming, he was a gentleman -- truly a "class act".
May choirs of angels sing thee to thy rest, my friend.
Lynn and John, my condolence on the loss of your father.
To the family of Lynn Chandnois,you have my deepest sympathy for the loss of your beloved one. Our heavenly Father is with you, and He will revive your spirit and crush heart-Isaiah 57:15. (Erma L. Davis, Park Forest, IL.)
To the Chandnois family- May you find comfort in knowing God cares for you, and will help you get throw this difficult time. (1Peter 5:7) Gail (Al).
Linda I know you don't know me, but I have known Lynn since 1966 when I went to work for Jarvie Insurance and he would come in to see Jack. What a wonderful, sweet person he was to a 17 year old girl fresh off the farm. He was always kind and considerate. He always brought back things from the Steelers reunions for my son, Jason.
Jason still has the football card that Lynn gave him. Please know that you are in my prayers. Vickie Robertson (Davison, MI
