Madison/John Paul Lynch, age 71, of Madison, passed away on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at home unexpectedly of natural causes. He was born December 11, 1946 in Madison, the son of Clarence E. and Jeanette C. (Schmitt) Lynch.
John was a graduate of East High School in Madison. He served in the U.S. Army and was a Vietnam Veteran. He was proud of his service and remained very active with VFW Post 7591where he was the service officer. He worked for 20 years as a mechanic for the U.S. Postal Service. John was the kind of guy who would give you the shirt off his back and help in any way he could. He enjoyed fixing cars, was the go-to-guy if your car broke down, and he passed his knowledge on to his sons and others. He adored his grandchildren and they were his pride and joy.
John is survived by his children, Scott (Stacy) Lynch, Paul (Merranda) Lynch, Cathy (Chris) Davis, David (Alyssa) Lynch, Tina (Donald) Bryant; seven grandchildren, Megan, Marin, Noah, Hannah, Ava, Evan, Eian; a sister, Barbara Nisius and niece and nephew, Jeanie and Jim Nisius.
He was preceded in death by his parents and step-father, Neville Ward.
The family extends their thanks to Dennis Landen for always being there.
