Lynn passed away on Monday, July 13, 2009 at the Golden Living Center in Orem, Utah, where he had been a patient for the last two months of his life. Over the years, dementia had dimmed his mind and slowed his body but never lessened his love for his family.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Gene, and son-in-law, M. Roy Daniel.
