Lynch, James Patrick "JP"

 

Churchville:  Passed peacefully on October 21, at age 71 after a prolonged illness.  Predeceased by parents Leo & Anita Lynch and brother Joseph.  Survived by siblings David (Kathy), Tom (Peg), Kathy Petrillo, Mary Ellen (Gordie) Stocks, John (Judy), Maggi (Vince) Masci, Leo (Meg), Christine Lynch, Gerry (Rosemary), Ann (David) Allen, former wife Helen Lynch, father’s wife Millie Lang Lynch, and his beloved dog, Max.

JP was a fiercely independent person and did his best to live life on his own terms.  This wasn’t always easy but beyond that he was a kind and gentle soul.  He was a Vietnam era Navy veteran.  Though he was never a parent, JP loved and was loved by his many, many nieces & nephews.

Per JP’s wishes, no calling hours.  A private family service will be held.  Those wishing to make a gift in JP’s memory may select a charity of their choice.
