  3. Barbara,Kathy and families,
    I am so sorry for your loss.I know you will miss Lynwood tremendously and have a void in your life that can never be filled. However you can call on each other and many friends to help you through these hard times.
    I grew up with Lynwood from Highlands Elementary through LaMarque High. We played sports together and hung out for what seems like a big part of our growing up days. Then as we became adults we drifted apart to start our new lives.
    I have kept up with his problems through Busch and Lanny and most recently Mike and James. It saddened me to hear of his struggles with his health. Those struggles are over now and you can take comfort in knowing he is pain free now.
    I hope you all get over the pain of your loss and take heart in the good memories you have.
    Again I’m sad for your loss and wish you a calmer time in the near future.
    Sincerely, Bob Creekmore

  4. So sorry to hear this Barbara. Knew Lynwood in high school but got to know him better as a frat brother in college. Was lucky to bump into him by chance in a cafe off I-10 a few years ago and got to reminisce about old days; including when he got to catch for Nolan Ryan at Astros tryout camp one year. What a great life he had with so many good friends with you at the top of his list. Peace to you and the family.

Although we only recently met Lynwood 4 years ago, our relationship became much like being a brother. Be assured that he will be missed by all who knew him. May his soul rest in Peace and may Perpetual light shine upon him. Bless you Barbara for your dedication.

  6. Barbara I’m so sorry for the loss of Lynnwood. He was a good man and I thought a lot of him. I remember the first time I met him. He went to college with some of my classmates and friends from Conroe. I knew if he put up with them he had a lot of patience. Godspeed.

  8. Lynwood was a very special person and great friend to have. We both joined Wheelabrator at the same time (late 70’s) and immediately became friends in the business. He was a co-worker that I could trust and valued his advice on numerous occasions. When I needed business ideas he was one of the few that I knew I could go to for help. Every moment we spent together on golf courses, drinking wine, in his boat and on business was enjoyable and typically had some very funny moments. I also admired his loyalty to his customers, employees, suppliers and the business itself as well as his love of Houston and the family & friends there. We will dearly miss him and the joy he brought to all of us.
