He enjoyed fishing, camping, boating and waterskiing, and if you were brave enough to get on an inner tube, he would try to knock you off and say “how do you like me now?” Lynn would also say “I can’t wait until tomorrow, because I get better looking every day!” His favorite joke to tell was “the new blue cheer” and he loved to tell stories about his adventures with Davy Crockett back in the day.
He leaves his wife, the former Linda Vespasian, whom he married April 30, 1966 and again April 30, 1998; three daughters, Lori Bell and her husband Dave of South Carolina, Wendy Greenawalt and her husband Bill of Masury, Shannon Waite and her husband Brian of Hubbard and Kim Pursell of Tennessee who was like a 4th daughter to him; a brother, Paul Williams; a sister, Carol Ann Pagley and her husband Jim of Hubbard; 5 grandchildren, David and his wife Christina, Casey and her boyfriend Ken, Krysta and her fiance Angel, Karli, Stephen and his fiance Rachael; Melissa, who was like a granddaughter and her boyfriend Billy and Jared who was like his grandson; 9 great grandchildren.
