Deepest sympathy to you. My grandmother, Melva Dagwell, was the housekeeper at your inn in the mid-50's- early 60's; my mother, Carolyn, worked in the kitchen in '54-'55. If my memory serves right, Grandma called her boss "Heinie," and was quite fond of him. Cliff Jones, FLHS '65

What a great guy loved meeting him several times at the stage when he came to see his beloved Son singing and performing. I was only lucky enough to sing with his Son. I know he will be missed by many. My love to Bill and his family.

Mr. Wynn was the coolest guy...He was the original "players coach" in baseball over at Holiday Park.....I think all the kids wanted to be on his teams...I know I did.. He and my dad had a great love for kids. I never felt the need to get into the "Eddie Haskell" mold with him...One never felt goofy or awkward in his presence. Always in a good mood...Always accentuated the positive....Never put kids down...I have good memories of Mr. Wynn. He helped a lot of kids feel good about themselves. That counts in my book in a big way..
