Joe, thanks for all the great memories. We will always smile when we think of you and your jovial ways. We are grateful that our paths crossed and for showing us "the best salad bar in town." As my brother Robert wrote, "you will be missed but never forgotten." And to my sister Dotti,, cherish the wonderful memories you and Joe made together. Sending love and caring thoughts to the family.

I will remember Joe because of all the calls he made to me in California. We exchanged the latest information about our east coast and west coast relatives. He loved keeping in touch with all of us. I will miss our talks together! The Lynch family has relatives living in the east coast, Wisconsin and California. I always felt like he called from next door.
I am sure he is in peace now.

As the older brother of Dottie Kelso it has been my pleasure and privilege to know Joe Lynch and to call him my brother-in-law. Joe had a very good and very long life. He helped raise a great family and found success in the business world while imparting his "joie de vivre" to those he came in contact with. Who among us can match his lifetime achievement of leaving footprints in all 50 states and on all 7 continents ??!!

Joe, you will be missed, but never forgotten.

Our wonderful uncle will be so missed, but fortunately he has left behind a "few" stories memorialized in a three-volume account of his life along with everything he knows about our ancestors. He was a story teller of the ages. He was an ambassador for Mineral Point, embracing and sharing his memories of the family home of Grandpa and Grandma Engels which still stands on 7th Street. You couldn't have an Uncle Joe without knowing that family was important. And God. And Country. And Marquette basketball. And the Green Bay Packers. He amazed us with doing math in his head and he amused us with his Irish wit. Sending heartfelt sympathy to Dottie, Joe, Janet, Mel, Christie and their families. With all our love, the Riordan, Witzling, Dunn, Buntrock, and DeGuire Clans.

Joe, thank you for being a wonderful Uncle ... for the advice and support you gave us in business matters and life ... for being a comfort to our mother with nightly phone calls and engaging conversations.

As a world traveler you have landed your plane at the "terminal" only to change planes to the next life -- eternal life. God bless you and thank you.

Susan, Rob and Patty Riordan
