McConchie, Lynn W. Sr. ALTAMONT It is with extreme sorrow that Linda McConchie announces the passing of her husband, Lynn W. McConchie Sr., on May 10, 2021. Lynn was born on May 31, 1945. He was predeceased by his parents, Earl and Geradine McConchie; his brother Earl Jr.; and his sister Nadine. Lynn is survived by his wife, Linda, of 57 years; his two sons, Lynn McConchie Jr. (Lisa), and Leigh McConchie (Kim); and his daughter Laura McConchie. Lynn is also survived by his six grandchildren, Kessiah and Kameron McConchie, Skyler and Mieleigh McConchie, Jessalynn Crusado and Colynn Tubbs; and two great-grandchildren, Kayzleigh and Kragar McConchie. There are also two very special ladies that were like his grandchildren, Tiffany Crusado and Crystal Rogers. Upon graduation from Galway Central School in 1968 he attended and graduated from Spencer Business Institute where he was enrolled in the court reporting program. This profession led him to work for 30 plus years in Saratoga County Court as a senior court reporter where he worked with many outstanding judges and sat for several high profile criminal cases. Lynn retired in 2004 to pursue his passions of playing baseball, golf, bowling and sailing. He joined an over 30 baseball league as a player and soon became the coach while still playing first base or pitching. In 2006 he pitched a no hitter at the age of 61. He continued to play sports until his unfortunate stroke while on the baseball field. He never again regained the ability to play those sports but he continued to be a fighter until the very end. He always asked about every one of his grandchildren no matter how close or how far away they were. The number 22 will forever be etched in his family members' hearts. We will remember the happy memories and always remember you as the fierce pitcher on the mound. Viewing hours will be on May 14, from 5-7 p.m. at the Richard J. Ryan Funeral Home, Inc., 2034 West St., Galway. Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 15, in the funeral home.
