Lynn loved to sing and frequently made up silly songs and argued often about the correctness of his lyrics to more familiar songs.
Lynn passed along a wonderful tradition for keeping track of his family members when on trips, insisting everyone “Count off” which was always met with a resounding “One” no matter how many were in the car.
Lynn enjoyed cooking and one of his simplest recipes of “salt soup” was a family favorite of the kids and grandkids.
Lynn was an early computer advocate/geek and was always interested in the latest technology.
His life could have taken a very different path if not for the fact that one day, while on the tractor at his family’s farm, he felt the call to ministry so hard he “couldn’t shake it” and went directly to seminary.
He graduated with a Master in Divinity from Luther Seminary in St. While in seminary, his parents encouraged him to look up some old friends, the Holstad family, if he ever wanted a home cooked meal.
He told his children every day when they were young to “Remember who you are” and also passed that important advice along to his grandchildren.
