Lynn was a member of the dirt race car and 4X4 mud bog communities all over the country.  His passion for building and tuning race cars that finished 1st and 2nd places gave him that ear to ear Kool-Aid smile.  His later passions in life were boating and spending time on the water with his children and grandchildren.

Lynn was a jack of all trades and had mastered most if not all of them. He taught as an aide in vocational technical schools and passed on his learned skills throughout life.  He enjoyed most of his professional career as an automotive technician and or driving class 8 tractor trailer. In 1987 he earned Chrysler Corporations top service technician award for being one of top ten diagnostic technicians in the world.

He was an active outdoorsman most of his life who enjoyed fishing and hunting and passing those skills down to his children and grandchildren.

Surviving are four daughters, Heather L. Strong (Dan Springer), Colleen A. (Chris) Cole, Stephanie R. (Donald) Durow, Katrina (James) Keefe; eight sons. Shawn Strong (Collete Follett), Darrell (Mary Jo) Strong,  Robert T. Strong (Rheesa Rood), Scott Strong (Sandy Blaker), Timothy Strong (Deanna Senay) Eric M. (Katarina) Strong, Robert Allen (Jeffrey Allen), Justin Beyea.; Three sisters Lucinda Meeks Strong, Susan Strong,  Ruth Kutil, and two brothers Robert A. Strong, and Carl Ellison.  Lynn had 32 grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

Lynn was predeceased by his wife, Cathy Strong, Father Robert F. Strong, Mother Ruth A. Strong, grandson Ryan S. Strong and son in law Roy John Alford.

On behalf of Lynn and family, we would further extend gratitude to his close friend Florence Greene who in his final years and days helped looked after him and his daily quality of life.

Almighty God, I thank You for the comfort of Your Word. You have told me that my heart can be at peace about my dad’s passing. I know he went immediately into Your presence when he left us here on earth. Thank You, my heavenly Father!

    He always tried to help anyone he could. He involved himself in all of his children’s lives. He was a loving father and grandfather, but held to the ” old” ways of respect and duty. He will be missed. Fly high Lynn!

    Lynn was one of a kind. Him and Cathy became my friends threw fb when I first joined. They even came all the way to Missouri to visit me and my late husband Jody. After Cathy had passed, Lynn moved in with my late husband and I for a couple years. So many memories. I’m gonna miss our chats him and I had.
