Lynn Carl Hockett passed away quietly at Rideout Hospital following a short illness. Lynn was born on July 19, 1942 in Porterville, CA to parents, Helen G. (Berkovich) Hockett and Harry Hockett. They lived there until his younger sister, Pat, developed allergies. Doctors advised moving. They came to Yuba City, where Lynn attended Bridge St. School, Gray Ave., and Yuba City High School. He then moved to Washington where he worked as a welder, married, and had 2 children, Stephanie and John (deceased).
