Lynn was our neighbor in Rochester and always greeted us with a friendly smile and wave. When we moved to Kasson he fabricated/created our custom iron railings for our front steps. He was really an artist in that respect.
Lynn was a good guy, John & I have fond memories of Lynn. He like to play trivia, he was SO smart.
Lynn will be remembered for his laughter and smiles. Lynn and Judy were good neighbors when they were in our neighborhood.
