Red Sox and Best Friends
Sean Lynch was the uncle with the cool cars.
The fourth of five siblings, Mr. Lynch, 34, took joy in watching his nephews' soccer games and playing tic-tac-toe with his nieces. Then he would be off, often taking trips to other cities with friends to attend sporting events. One year it was the Super Bowl, another year the Final Four.
Mr. Lynch went to college in Boston. A devoted Red Sox fan, he counted among his accomplishments converting his best friend at Cantor Fitzgerald, a lifelong Yankee fan, to a Red Sox devotee.
Mr. Lynch had known since high school that he wanted to be a stockbroker, and shortly before Sept. 11 he was promoted to senior vice president for equity trading. "He used to say he was paid to hang out with his friends," said his older brother, Mike. "He loved it."
