Lynn was born on Jan. 14, 1939, in Austin, Minnesota, to Raymond and Aurelia (Campbell) Webber. Lynn attended school in Taopi from first- through eighth-grade before graduating from Adams High School in 1957. Lynn was homecoming king of Adams High in 1956. He excelled in baseball, basketball, and football and was All Conference Honors in all three sports. On Nov. 15, 1960, Lynn married Helen Marie Retterath at Sacred Heart Catholic Church. He retired from George A. Hormel Co. and was a proud member of the Local P-9. In his retirement, Lynn worked as a caretaker at the High Forest rest area.

Lynn was proud of his children and adored his grandchildren. He coached grade-school football. He enjoyed his sons’ sports events and later he loved to watch his grandchildren’s sporting events. He loved babysitting his precious granddaughter – his little Sadie Bug (3-and-a-half years old). In his spare time, Lynn enjoyed hunting ducks, geese, deer and bear with his sons, grandsons and friends. He also did taxidermy and trapping with his sons. Lynn was in the Donor Program. He loved John Wayne movies and all westerns.
