Gregory William Lynch passed away unexpectedly at the age of 74 following a short illness.
Greg was born in Columbus, Ohio, and spent his childhood in Washington Court House, Ohio. After high school, he served in the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
Following his time in the Air Force, he pursued his interest in the outdoors by studying for a Bachelor’s Degree in Wildlife and Fisheries at the University of Idaho. Greg went on to attain a Master’s Degree in Wildlife Biology from Texas A&M University. He
served his country as part of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for 3 years and as part of the U.S. Forest Service for 28 years before retiring in 2008.
Aside from serving his country, Greg enjoyed serving God and the community. He served as an active member and Lay Speaker at Kennesaw United Methodist Church until moving to Florida, where he became an active member and Lay Leader at Emmanuel Methodist Church.
He was a kind and spiritual man, always ready to lend a hand, and always willing to give of his time and talents. His caring personality and unique sense of humor won him many friends, with whom he enjoyed golf, bowling, and travelling.
Greg was preceded by his mother and father, Merrill and Helen Lynch of Washington Courthouse, Ohio, and his sister Marilyn Lynch, of Culver City, California. He is survived by his wife, Pamela Hartley Lynch of Bradenton, Florida, and his son and daughter-in-law,
Christopher and Jennifer Lynch, of Acworth, Georgia.
