Nov 8, 1942 - April 26, 2012 EDMOND Lynn Christopher Quinn, known as Dad or "Papabean" to his grandchildren, was 69 when he was taken from us on April 26, 2012. Dad is survived by his three boys and their families: Lynn Christopher Jr., wife Carolyn and their children, Charlie Ragona, Christine Ragona and Shea Quinn; son, Brent Patrick, wife Caroline and their children, Braden and Kyle; and son, Chase Gannon and his children, Berekely and Tristan. Lynn is also survived by his five lovely sisters, Marjorie and husband Don Meisinger, Suzy and husband Gene Imke, Theresa Quinn, Gina and husband Eric Frazier, and Barbie and husband Gary Davis; as well as three brothers, Robert Jr. and wife Judy, Greg Quinn, and Rock and wife Monica Quinn; and their families. Predeceased in death by wife, Ann Elizabeth; father, Robert Quinn Sr.; mother, Marguerite Quinn Stargel; and brother, Harry Quinn.He attended Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School, where he met his high school sweetheart, Ann, and was married on September 7, 1963. In 1967, Lynn graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a degree in Pharmacy and later earned his Doctor of Pharmacy in 2001. He was the consummate Sooner Fan and loved his Sooners dearly. After his "Annie" passed away in 2008, Lynn tried to piece his life back together in Oklahoma City; however, in the end it turned out ultimately too much for his heart to bear. His 43-1/2 years of marriage and his loneliness for his soul mate finally got the best of him. What his family will take from Dad's passing is, "We can always lean on friends and family no matter what the circumstances and always stand ready to swoop in to help when it seems there is too much pain for your heart to handle." We will miss you Dad, Lynn, brother because you brought an energy and enthusiasm to every environment you were a part of and everybody knew if "YOU" were in the room. Your Grandkids will miss the visits from "PapaBean" and the awesome generosity you always showered upon them every time you visited. They will miss the honor of your being present for their graduations, marriages, and the children they will hopefully bring into this world. As your family moves forward, we embrace the challenge of making sure the Quinns stay the course and always stick together. Dad, your boys are saddened by this unfortunate passing, and if we could say one last thing to you, we would say, "we will grow from this and our resolve to stay together will never be stronger." We miss you Dad and take solace in knowing you are "home" with your "Annie" and smiling down on us. As you once said, "There is no goodbye; So Long."Services will be held at Church of the Servant on Wednesday, May 2, 2012, at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to The University of Oklahoma Athletic Department.
