My humblest condolences to Lynn's family and friends. Lynn and I went to high school together, and we attended the same Lutheran church. One day in confirmation class we nerds were all bragging about the various musical instruments we played. Lynn was not a nerd, and when it came time for Lynn to brag, his comment was, "I play football." It was so funny. We also shopped almost exclusively at the Canon Market, where Lynn and his brothers learned his father's business and then struck out on their own. I'd lost track of Lynn's family, although I'd hear about what they were doing with their lives when visiting with my dad. Again, my condolences, Ted

I served with Lynn on the Airport Board and am a fellow pilot. Lynn was an effective board member who was always a gentleman and had this easy going air about him that I truly admired. He was always open to a casual visit and I enjoyed those visits. I'll miss him and will think of him each time I turn in to Silver West. Rest in peace my friend.

I grew up next door to the LaGree family in Canon City for 12 years. We also went to the same Lutheran church. I remember all of us kids playing outside all the time. 1 day, I rode Lynn´s brand new motorcycle up Short St ( a dirt street), after my parents expressly forbade me to. I had never been on a motorcycle. Well, I crashed it. Lynn was so gracious about it, and I felt bad about the scratch on the gas tank! So many memories of he and his brothers, his very kind parents. I didn´t see him very much, but we texted off and on. It was a shock and a devastation to hear of his death so suddenly. RIP, see you in heaven, Lynn LaGree......
