    He was a good neighbor and Richard enjoyed their visits. I’m sure there were tall tales in those visits. Loved seeing him dining at The Charleston Tea Room at what I’m sure was his personally reserved table. Prayers for you, Carolyn, and your family.

    I come to know Lynn Crow shortly after getting out of the army and landing a job @ Ethyl Corp 1972. Being a pipe fitter apprentice I worked with a lot of journeyman and you learn real quick those whose character revealed there faith. Lynn lived his faith on the job – a man with integrity! I’m honored to say I worked with Lynn & even carried his tool box.
    Here is a photo of him with myself (youngest guy in photo) & other co-workers celebrating my uncle JC Bowen s Birthday . JC & Lynn are now with Lord & I’m looking forward to the day I will join them.

    What a great man. I will forever cherish the conversations we had at the ballpark while he was supporting his grandsons. A genuine man of God who will be greatly missed. Rest well PaPa!
