Robert Lynn Obituary
Robert Edward Lynn
Robert Edward Lynn, 79, passed away early on Friday March 28 after heart and lung complications. He was and always will be, a great guy. Born in Chicago, Illinois on February 22, 1935. He was the youngest son of Margaret and Walter Lynn. Bob, his sister Elinor and his mom and dad were very nomadic. They lived in New York, Pennsylvania and Arizona... eventually settling in Southern California. Bob attended Hamilton High School in West Los Angeles for his junior and senior years. He enlisted and proudly served in the United States Navy from March 1, 1955 to January 26, 1959. It was during this time he became an avid photographer. He was a big fan of showing his work in a darkened living room to all who would watch. Bob moved to Hollywood, California to attend college. In 1959, Bob attended a dance in Inglewood, California where he met the love of his life, Helene L. Dias. They were married on September 3, 1960 in Milton, Massachusetts. Bob went to work for Litton Industries as an Electrical Engineer but he soon landed at a TRW in Redondo Beach. He continued to work for TRW all through the cold war, Mercury and Apollo missions, the Apollo-Soyuz Spacecraft and Space Shuttle age for close to 40 years. Bob loved watercolor painting. He took it up later in life, which gave him countless hours of enjoyment. His style was best described as "whimsical". Part rocket scientist, part artist, all Dad. That's who he was. Our Dad. Robert is survived by his three children...daughter Jodi Bahner (husband Roy); daughter Cheryll Lynn (husband Scott NcNabb); son Patrick Lynn; grandson Jonathan Kiser (wife Gina); and granddaughter Ashley Bahner.
