Lynn's family were faithful members of St. John's Lutheran Church in Pomeroy, IA where he was baptized and confirmed. Lynn graduated from Pomeroy High School in 1979 after being actively involved in extra curricular activities. Lynn especially loved band and chorus and was an accomplished pianist and organist. As a teenager he would load his organ and hire out to provide fun and entertaining music at town festivals, business gatherings and family parties of all kinds. Lynn loved fun tunes and Christmas music. From a very young age through his adulthood Lynn loved Christmas lights and decorations.

Lynn graduated from Westmar College in LeMars with a Bachelors of Arts. He majored in Accounting, Computer Science and minored in Economics and music. He participated in the Westmar Choir and Bands and was fortunate to tour Europe with them. After college Lynn passed the CPA exam and went to work for the Iowa Auditors Office. It was through his work in the auditor's office that he met Tom Little and the staff of Scientific Games. Tom hired Lynn and his life long career and love for the lottery business began.

After 15 years of dedication Lynn left Scientific Games to take care of his Mother Juanita as she battled cancer. Juanita passed in January 2002 and Lynn continued to work along side his Father Roger in his landscape business. After a period of time he was fortunate to join Intralot and go back to working in the lottery business where he was still employed at the time of his death.

Lynn never met a stranger. He was kind, caring and always went the extra mile in his career and for all he met. If something needed to be done, Lynn would get it done. If you needed something, Lynn would be there to provide it. You might have to listen to him tell you how you should do it, but after all his advise, he would make sure it was just as you wanted or needed it to be.

Lynn lived life large, he loved big and he laughed loud. He was the life of the party and he treasured every colleague, neighbor and friend as family. The outpouring of love and support by his family and friends these past weeks would have humbled Lynn to tears. He cherished life and all that he had to give. His presence will be sorely missed. The family requests that we all honor Lynn by living his way: Loud, Big, Large and with compassion and caring for all that you encounter everyday.
