He welcomed me into his family and called me the Welsh Princess. He made everyone he met feel special. I love and will miss you Uncle Lynn.

Lynn Owens was a darling person, devoted family man and friend to all. He was our neighbor for many years, and it was always a treat to get together with Linda and Lynn. God bless him, and God bless his family. Love and hugs to his family.

I was looking for info on when services will be. Lynn worked with my dad in the old days(Ted Barth). Maybe 1966? He was my god father. A great and loving family man. Lynn will forever have a special place in my heart.

Lynn, you taught me how to hold my self high above the turmoil involved in working in a harsh environment. You taught me grace and perseverance. I wish I had the chance to say thank you one more time. You were my teacher and mentor. But you knew that!
