Uncle Lynn was a warm and wonderful man. I have many fond memories of him as my "across the street" neighbor and stand in grandfather. He was the one who taught me how to "make change" without a calculator when I worked at Allen's Farm Market and started me on the delicious habit of dunking oyster crackers in butter:) He and Aunt Marge kept tabs on the entire Arthur family for over 40 years and for that we are all grateful. There wasn't anything that Uncle Lynn couldn't fix or do and you'll never find a harder worker. Although I've not lived in the area for a long time...I will so miss this man's strong,yet gentle spirit. I grieve to know he's no longer on this earth with us. You are loved and appreciated, Uncle Lynn. Aunt Marge I send you my love and prayers.

Very sorry to learn that Lynn passed away last week. He will be missed by many. I can remember him as a child and he always had a smile for everyone that came in contact with him.
