Gray's Creek N.C. - Lyndel Paul Lynch, 85, a born-again Christian, was Blessed to receive one of many promises from his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on November 5th, 2021 at 12:42 p.m.
John 14: 2-3 (KJV) Jesus tells Lyndel: “2. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” What a most beautiful promise to see fulfilled before our very eyes and that promise applies to all believers.
Lyndel was born on the 15th day of September of 1936 in Brinkley, Arkansas to parents, Leo Paul Lynch and Lela Mae Bain Lynch. His brother Bob was born July 21st, 1939. His family moved to Fairfield, IL in 1951.
He proudly served our country in the U.S. Army and the Army Reserves and was proud to be a volunteer Firefighter for the "Fairfield Fire Department"
He was employed at "Airtex Products" for 30 years and retired from the company, a supervisor in 1992. Deciding that same year that he needed a brand-new start, he left IL. and settled down in Fayetteville, NC.
He worked several jobs, but his favorite was "Kemp Lawn & Garden" working for Sterling Kemp.
Lyndel and I met in the summer of 2002 and it was an instant mutual attraction. Married on March 5th of 2008. We agreed a few weeks ago that we had indeed been soulmates all along, as we held one another and cried, prayed, and thanking the Lord for giving us a deeper understanding of His love for us and our love for one another. I wouldn't trade these past 20 years with him for anything and though this past year was a struggle for the both of us, God brought much wisdom and love from our darkest hours but most of all, we thanked him for showing us what "Unconditional Love" truly is and the power of "Forgiveness". Sometimes it takes a mountain to see the truths that really matter and the solution that was there all along..... God.
Lyndel was given a special gift of prayer and often prayed for anyone he saw that needed it, including the middle of an aisle in a store. How blessed and honored I have truly been to know and love him.
He was immediately accepted, loved and cherished by all of my family and that truly meant the world to him.
Lyndel's passions included photography, wildlife (wolves) and family but most of all, learning as much as he could about the Lord.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Mr. & Mrs. Leo Lynch; nephew, Terry Lynch; and cousin, Don Keathley.
Lyndel is survived by his beloved "Angel Face" Christy Lynch, of the home, his baby girl, Angel Hope Lynch, niece, Karaleena E.A. Williams of Fayetteville, N.C., daughter Susan Suddarth of Fairfield IL; granddaughter, Meghan McKnight; great-grandson, Hudson McKnight; and one brother, Bob Lynch and wife Berneda, and niece, Kristi Lynch, all of Nason IL.
Lyndel respected and appreciated our dear neighbors that without fail have been right there for him / us when needed and gone above and beyond. Bob and Angela Gardner, Carol Gardner and sweet Chloe Turner.
There were two very special people that touched Lyndel's life that blessed him with many smiles and much joy: T.J. and Bear.
Lyndel will be incredibly missed by many and may the memories we each have live forever within our hearts.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, 322 8th Avenue, 16th Floor, New York, NY 10001.
