Irish He Is-  Strange blend of shyness, pride and conceit and stubborn refusal to bow in defeat. He’s wild and he’s gentle, he’s good and he’s bad. He’s proud and he’s humble, he’s happy and he’s sad. Mostly he’s Irish blessed by his God.

Met and charmed a visiting Bostonian, Ruth Holland; Wed in 1962. Proud of his children: Brendan (Leslie) of Dublin, CA; Siobhan (Konrad) of Two Rivers, AK; Deirdre (Bill) of San Rafael,CA. Proudest of his grand-children: Conor, Caelan, Ella, Lauren, Sofia and Sebastian. Brother Larry (Shaina) of San Bruno, and Sister Adrianne Roletto (Gary, deceased) of Newark CA. Preceded in death by his parents Denis and Margaret Sullivan Lynch.
