Sulphur resident J. Lynn Bohannon, 63, died Saturday, Dec. 16, at Mercy Memorial Hospital in Ardmore from complications after a courageous battle with lung cancer.
He was born April 30, 1943, in Shawnee to John and Wilma Bohannon. Lynn graduated from Earlsboro High School in 1961. After graduation, he trained as a funeral director and worked in Shawnee and Stillwater.
On June 2, 1962, he married his high school sweetheart, Georgia Maxson, in Shawnee. The couple gave birth to their first child, Kendall Clay, on Sept. 2, 1963. Shortly thereafter Lynn began a long and distinguished career as a truck driver. Their second child, Janna Lynnette, was born on Aug. 2, 1965, in Shawnee. Later that year the family moved to Kiowa. They lived there until moving to McAlester in 1970. They returned to Shawnee in 1977 where they lived for the next 14 years. His career in trucking enabled Lynn and Georgia to relocate easily, so in 1991 they moved to Loveland, Colo. In 1998 they built their dream home at Lake of the Arbuckles near Sulphur, where they lived at the time of Lynn's death. In 2004, after more than 40 years driving trucks, Lynn retired.
Lynn was a member of Vinita Avenue Church of Christ in Sulphur. He was actively involved in many church activities. He was an avid outdoorsman and spent much of his free time at the lake where he taught at least three generations of family and friends to water-ski.
He was preceded in death by his parents and one sister, Ann McMahan.
Survivors include his wife, Georgia; his son, Kendall of Denver Colo.; his daughter and her husband, Janna and David Taylor of Arlington, Texas; two grandchildren, Zachary and Nathan Taylor of Arlington, Texas; one sister, Jane Wade of Houston, Mo.; and one brother, Don Bohannon of Earlsboro; nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.
Service will be 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Church of Christ in Sulphur, 12th Street and Vinita Avenue, with Bro. Bill Hearn officiating. A graveside service will follow at 3 p.m. at Resthaven Memorial Cemetery in Shawnee.
Krien Funeral Home, Sulphur, is directing arrangements.
