Guestbook

I worked with Lynn at the mortuary. I initially knew him as he hired me to live in the apartment there at the mortuary just before I got married. We quickly became good friends and he was a good mentor after I got married and my wife and I continued to live there. Then I began working there with him until I got on with the Murray Police Dept. I always stayed in touch with him even after I left the mortuary and we moved out to Riverton. We both served as bishops at the same time and I would run into him at various regional training meetings. He was a great man and I always had the greatest respect and admiration for him. After he retired I kind of lost tract, but always think of him when I drive his old house on Redwood Road in Riverton. May God’s best blessings be with Jan and his family.
