    I grew up with Lynn as a neighbor to the bus garage my whole life. Always enjoyed hearing his stories and spent some time over at his place feeding the horses and Jack the jackass. I also knew Larry and he let me drive my first semi (Mack truck of course). Our thoughts & prayers are with you.

    Lynn was a friend and taught me how to drive truck (Grandma) at age 15. He always helped my Dad, Bill and myself anytime we would ask. I also remember his dog Gomer that rode with him years ago. Lynn will be missed.
