James Michael "Jim" Lynott Obituary
On Friday, December 12th 2014, the world lost one of its great souls. Jim, born May 3, 1952 was the first-born son of proud parents Robert and Carol Lee from the Northwest Chicago area and later Huntington Beach, CA.
Jim was a Bakersfield resident since 1979, and a graduate from California State University Bakersfield. In his later years, Jim became a teacher, a true passion of his. As a 5th/6th grade teacher at Sandrini Elementary School, he developed great rapport with his students and thoroughly delighted in their success as if they were his own kids. Deeply missed but never forgotten, a wonderful son, husband, father and friend, Jim will long live in the hearts and minds of all those that shared in his wit, humor and infectious love of life. He was a gracious, beautiful man.
Jim is survived by his mother Carol Lee, his brothers Robert, Kurt, and David, his sister Jennifer, his former wife and friend Teri, and his children Tim and Kati.
Jim's memorial service will be held on January 17th, 2015 at 10:00 am at Riverlakes Community Church, 4301 Calloway Drive. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Sandrini Elementary School Student Body, Attention: James Lynott Memorial.
Send to: Louise Sandrini Elementary, 4100 Alum Avenue, Bakersfield, California, 93309.
