KEENE - Evan A. McLynch, 63, of Mystic Place, Keene, died Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013, at his home, following a sudden illness.
He was born in North Conway, Jan. 26, 1950, the son of Francis and Phyllis (Sinclair) McLynch, and had resided in Manchester prior to moving to Keene.
Mr. McLynch graduated from Kennett High School in North Conway, class of 1967, and went on to further his education by obtaining his bachelor's of science degree from New Hampshire College in Manchester in 1972. While serving in the U.S. Air Force, he completed his master's in accounting at Golden Gate College in California.
He was an auditor with the U.S. Department of Defense. He had been employed with a branch of the U.S. government for more than 20 years.
Mr. McLynch was an active member of the Keene Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and had worked in the local church in many capacities. He enjoyed bee keeping and had hives in several places in the Keene area. He was known himself to be a busy bee, preferring to putter around doing things rather than to sit and do nothing at all.
