Wanda and family,
Dick and I are so very sorry to hear about Lynn. We have many fond memories of him at the Grotto and the good times we shared a room with you Wanda, & him at the conventions for several years. We had so much fun being with both of you. Smiling when we think of the Speedos on the balcony in Orlando. Precious Memories. You and your family are in our thoughts & prayers. 🙏🏻❤️ With much love,
Linda & Dick

Thoughts and Prayers of Sympathy, to the Family and Friends of Lynn. I had a brief contact with Chief Miller, during some military duty while at the Military Academy. Nothing but praise for his exceptional duty and I knowing him. May God Bless. Terry L. Gaberdiel, SSG US Army, Retired, Massweiler, Germany

Little did I know that the day I met Lynn would change so many lives! I worked at the Central Ohio Council USO Office located at Fort Hayes just North of downtown Columbus. One of my duties was to oversee events and scheduling of volunteers. One of his responsibilities with his job in the Ohio National Guard, also based at Fort Hayes, was to schedule coverage at their booth at the Ohio State Fair. So it all began in that office in the Summer of 1968. What developed was a very treasured friendship. Many of you may know that I was the person who introduced Lynn and Wanda, whom I had known since the day of my Senior Prom in May 1966!! So, yes, our families have quite a history and a deep, abiding love for each other. With much love, Mary Jo
