When I think of Lynn, many words come to mind. Words like gentle, kind and decent. Words like father, grandfather, and husband. He was a strong person, yet the ever present strength he exuded was a quiet strength. Quiet, yet powerful. He had the talent to speak to you with his eyes as effectively as any words could convey his exact sentiment. He loved getting a hug and giving a big hug back. He loved to fish, to tinker on cars and was known to pull the arm of a slot machine from time to time. While he loved to travel and indeed enjoyed many a wonderful vacation, he was equally happy to sit back and relax at home on an easy Sunday and throw some steaks on the grill. He loved to play peek-a-boo with Megan when she was little, and was a joyful, teddy bear type of a Grandpa. He loved spending time with all of his grandchildren and considered them the lights of his life. If he were healthier when his great grandchild Max was born, he would have been down on the ground rolling around with him. No doubt. Lynn was steady, solid, a rock of a man devoted to his wife, his children and entire family. He worked very hard to provide for his children and became a great success in business. But, he achieved this business success devoid of any goal to serve his own ego. Rather, he worked tirelessly to serve his family, to make sure that his children grew up in a safe, secure and happy home. Lynn walked the walk, living the family man example that he hoped to set for his children. And from my perspective as one of his daughter-in-laws, this was one of if not the great success of his life. My husband Kevin is an amazing husband and father, and I know exactly where his commitment to us comes from. It's in his blood. It's from his father. Thank you, Lynn. Most of all, as I remember Lynn, I believe the best way to honor the essence of this man is by reciting these simple words: Lynn loved Patricia. Two halves of a whole, they held hands and each others heart through 56 years of marriage, always with a sparkle whenever their eyes met. Always with trust and devotion. No regrets. Their marriage has set the kind of standard that we all should be lucky enough to live by yet few find themselves so fortunate. It is no accident that Kevin and I share their wedding anniversary. And, it is a privilege.
Although we all knew this day was imminent for some time, it does not make it any easier to wake up this morning and know that Lynn has passed on. His passing last night at 9:54PM was exactly as I had hoped it would be, for him, and for everyone in the room with him. It was quiet yet powerful, and it was gentle like he was. I love you Dad, and I will miss you.
