Lyn and I grew up together around Normandy and were the best of friends through our lives...we were in each other's fact, I was his best man.


Even though Lyn had not lived near Normandy for many years he was frequently still around aiding people in and around the Normandy community, especially elderly folks, by taking care of chores that maybe they could no longer do very easily...or go to town and pick up groceries or medicine for them...his Mom and Dad raised him well. He used to stop by and check on my Mom and Dad for lots of things such as I mentioned above and even get out in hazardous winter conditions and come check on them making sure their heat was working OK and bringing their mail in to them so they didn't have to risk falls to get their mail.


Of course, he didn't want, nor would he take, anything in return for his efforts.


Yep, they raised him well.


I will absolutely miss him.

Lyn, Grant and I went to grammar school together.  Lyn never much called attention to himself.  He was a gentle, kind, quiet boy and apparently grew into the same kind of man.  I remember his Momma taking a picture of us few Normandy kids in her living room around the time we finished the eighth grade. We all kinda grew up together and seemed to be more like brothers and sisters than classmates. I agree with Grant, I think they raised him right:)  I'm glad you were in our lives Lyn and you will be truly missed.  Rest in peace buddy.

I'm afraid I was never acquainted with Lyn. Judging by the description Grant and Patricia have given, it is apparent that it is my loss. I am very touched to hear what a good and kind friend he was to everybody, and am truly sorry that I was not among those who knew him.

Debbie, one of the reasons you or other classmates might not remember Lyn is that he was only at CHS for our Jr and Sr years.

For years and years there were people from the Normandy area that went to Tullahoma to high school - my own Dad for example. In the 60's the Bedford County school system and the Tullahoma City School district got ino a snit over kids living in Bedford County going to Tullahoma to high school...the reason, of course, was money...Bedford County Schools was not receiving federal monies that they felt they should have been receiving...those monies were, instead, being distributed to the Tullahoma City School System.

There were litigations and other legal manuverings that came to a head in the late 60's when the legal settlements started to be enforced...soooo, in the Fall of 1969 Lyn, after having gone his Fr and So years to Tullahoma had to switch to a Bedford County School, which in those days was either CHS or Wartrace High School for students in the Normandy area...his family opted for CHS. In fact, Lyn's next oldest sister was a year ahead of us and she had to change schools as she started her Sr year.

I know this area is really not for answering messages like I've done here, but I thought others might be in the same boat and maybe these two messages together might also explain to others why they might not have gotten to know Lyn.
