Frank Lynch

s/o David Joseph Lynch (1872-1933) & Catherine Kathlyn Anderson (1877-1961)

Born February 14, 1902 in Chicago. Starting his career also in his early twenties, Frank carried the family name through the act. In 1926, he married former Paramount Junior star Berniece Leu (1907-1988) who had worked under the name Iris Grey. Frank is probably better remembered for his radio broadcasting career in the Mid-West states than his early career as a vaudeville performer. After ending the KS&L act in the 1930's, Frank moved to Wichita, Kansas and in 1940 moved to Oklahoma City where he bought radio station KBYE in 1948. He later owned radio stations in Wichita, Tulsa, and Little Rock having stayed in the radio business until retirement in the 1960's. Frank's son Mike Lynch carried on the family radio business. The last surviving member of the Keller Sisters and Lynch trio, Frank J. Lynch died in Oklahoma City on September 30, 1992. He was survived by three sons and two daughters.
