Lynn graduated from the University of North Dakota with a BS and then went directly into the Air Force to become a successful pilot, flying air refuelers during Vietnam and also flying numerous classified missions all over the globe. During his career he achieved a Masters degree in Counseling through Ball State University. Lynn was awarded many medals, awards and commendations while in the Air Force where he retired as a Full Colonel. He easily earned the respect of his colleagues and those who worked with him or for him or knew him as a friend. They would describe him as a humble, polished officer with such high personal integrity and conviction; one would feel secure in his confidence and trust.
Lynn had a very kind heart, never hesitating to help friends in whatever means he could, even people he didn’t know. He was honest, gracious and grateful - always a gentleman. He treated everyone with dignity, respect and compassion. Thankfully, we are comforted by his strong belief in our Lord – fly high my precious Eagle, you are free.
