He retired from the Utah State Health Department, and worked many years after retirement at the University’s testing center.
Lynn always had a passion for football, and enjoyed watching games and knowing all about the scores, teams and players.
He was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served a mission in the Central Atlantic States, a stake mission, and later with his wife, in the San Bernardino, California CES Mission. Lynn served in many bishoprics, and as a veil and ordinance worker in the Salt Lake Temple.

He is preceded in death by his wife, parents, and his three brothers.
The family would like to give special thanks and appreciation for the excellent and loving care received from the staff at Carrington Court and Active Hospice.
At Lynn’s request, a private service will be held on Saturday, September 15. He will be laid to rest at Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Missionary Fund.
