Lynn was born Feb. 16, 1932, in Gonzales, Texas, to the late Henry Frederick and Elise Margaret (Nagel) Landbeck. During Lynn's formative years, he worked on his dad's farm while growing up, had a lucrative newspaper route for several years and worked for various merchants in Gonzales to earn spending money. Lynn was a member of First United Methodist Church in Gonzales, Texas, and was very active in their Sunday school and church programs. He played clarinet in the Gonzales High School marching band and graduated from GHS there in 1950. After graduation from high school, he worked at Halamicek Auto Supply in Gonzales, Texas, as an assistant to his dad. On June 22, 1951, Lynn entered the United States Air Force as an E-1 airman basic. He was a radio operator on the B-36 Peacemaker and flew several missions on it during the Korean War. When the time came for Lynn to re-enlist in the USAF he opted to become a civilian, marry and raise a family. He served his country from June 1951 through June 1955, and attained the rank of E-5 staff sergeant. He was honorably discharged from the USAF in June 1955. On Oct. 23, 1955, he married the former Miss Charlene Straach of Miles, Texas. After their marriage, they lived in Pasadena, Texas, and Temple, Texas, before moving to San Angelo in 1959. Lynn worked for Gandy's Dairies, Schneider Distributing Company, Samuels Hardware and Rainbow Oil. He also enjoyed delivering flowers for Shirley Floral for several years. Lynn was one of the founding members of Christ Lutheran Church in San Angelo and served the Lord for many years there. He served on the church council as its president for several years and worked on every church committee he could. He later joined Calvary Lutheran Church in San Angelo and was a member there at the time of his death. Lynn was preceded in death by his parents; and his beloved wife, Charlene, of 58 years. Charlene passed away on Jan. 16, 2014. Lynn was also preceded in death by other numerous aunts and uncles and a niece. He is survived by his daughter, Bonnie Landbeck Lancaster and her husband, Curt, of Woodway, Texas; son David W. Landbeck and his wife, Candy of Lubbock, Texas; granddaughter Chelsea Landbeck Farley of Slaton, Texas, and her husband, Elijah, and their sons, (Lynn's great-grandsons) William Farley and Jude Farley; and grandson Matthew Landbeck of Lubbock, Texas. He is also survived by his sister and brother-in-law, Betty and George Muery of San Angelo, Texas; his sister-in-law, Janet Straach Muery of San Antonio, Texas; two nephews and their families; one niece and her family; and other loved family members and dear friends. Lynn could always be found tinkering with something. He built playground equipment for his kids which they enjoyed and shared with all the neighborhood kids that came to play in the Landbeck backyard. Lynn loved to take lawnmowers, weed-eaters and other small engines apart and put them back together again. It was no surprise to anyone that whatever he worked on would run much better than it did when new. Bowling was a passion and Lynn greatly enjoyed bowling with several leagues in the San Angelo area year-round and traveling to tournaments around the state. Both Lynn and Charlene were active volunteers with Meals For The Elderly. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be made to Meals For The Elderly, 310 E. Houston Harte Expressway, San Angelo, TX 76903; Calvary Lutheran Church, 3231 College Hills Blvd., San Angelo, TX 76904; or . Lynn loved his God and his family. He will be truly and greatly missed by all of us who loved him dearly and will remain forever in our hearts.
