Stephen Thomas Lynch was born July 6, 1942, to John Patrick and Barbara Brophey Lynch, in Marblehead, Massachusetts, clearly one of the most beautiful towns in America. He was baptized and confirmed at Star of the Sea Catholic Church, where he attended school and was an alter boy trainee until the baseball season broke out across the street at Seaside Park. He served in the Air Force for four years during the Viet Nam War, and when stationed in San Antonio met and married the love of his life, Margie. They were married at Brooks Air Force Base on May 30, 1965. They were granted the two kids they had hoped for, Ryan and Kristyn. He also leaves behind Ryan’s wife, Paige, his sister Susan Johnson, her family Rebecca and William Johnson, Shannon and Ben Ames and their Isabella and Ted, as well as a sister Jane Crosby. Highpoints in his life were to continue to coach his son, Ryan and his daughter Kristyn’s sports teams throughout their school years, and the marriage of Ryan to his wife, Paige.

He attended law school at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, with help from the GI bill, and established that he was a patriot by becoming a founding member of “Law Students Opposed to the Vietnam War.” With one exception, he has opposed every U. S. war since.

He practiced in the Dallas area for over 30 years with a focus on real estate and finance, working in mortgage banking, particularly multi family. He enjoyed no area as much as he did the last 15 years working directly with clients on wills, estates, and probate, in beautiful East Texas. He surrendered his will and life to a loving God he had learned about from Dr. Bob Smith and Bill Wilson. “I sought the Lord and he heard me, and he took away all my fears.” Those fears never returned. After being longtime active members of First United Methodist Church Richardson, Steve and wife Margie have felt that they have found a wonderful church home in the Cedar Creek Lake area as members of Aley United Methodist Church, Kemp. Steve has requested that his service be a joyful celebration of his life. The service will be held at 4 o’clock pm, on Sunday, October 25, 2015 at First United Methodist Church, Mabank located at 501 S. 3rd Street, Mabank, Tx.

Dear Margie

Good thoughts have been coming back to me over the past few months. New Orleans, Dallas, Angel Fire. They were good times and Steve's personality and wit made them even better. I also remember all the help he gave the kids when Trish died. Although we haven't gotten together in a long time I still think about you guys and wish I had made more of an effort to keep up the relationship. I know Steve has now found peace and an end to his suffering for which I am thankful. If not for some medical issues and a home that just 1/2 flooded I would be at the memorial but I hope to see you sometime soon.

Love
David
