  1. So very sorry to hear of Mr. Lynch’s passing. He was my Algebra teacher as well as Economics teacher in the ninth grade. He was a great teacher and had a unique sense of humor!

  2. So very sorry for your loss. Prayers for the family. Mr. Lynch was a wonderful teacher and kind person. I was in his class as well as Nancy’s at LaFollette Junior High. Truly kind, gentle souls. Praying for peace and comfort for the family.
