When I was little I would ride my bike in front of his house, he would stand in the way and ask "What's the password!?" I would reply joyously "Tuna Fish!" . Saw him 45 years later at Chapel Street and he asked "What's the password!?" I replied Tuna Fish! We laughed and laughed, he couldn't believe I remembered. I was making tuna fish today and thought of you, thanks for the fond life long memory Mr Lynch.

My parents were the immediate next-door neighbors of Jerry and Marion at Cokesbury. They looked forward to Jerry's homemade English muffins at Christmas. Jerry's muffins were as good - and arguably better - than Thomas'.

Jerry was kind and helpful to my mother following my father's death in 2013. Jerry gave me one of his artworks.

My sincere condolences to all members of the Lynch family.

It was an honor to meet Jerry at Cokesbury. My folks lived nearby. He was always kind and energetic. He took the time to tell me stories about DuPont Engineering and the pioneering work he did. I shared it with the Rotating Machinery group at DuPont a couple years ago and they indeed noted how important his work was. He was also amazing for his many other talents. Truly a pleasure to know him.

Gerry and Marion were two of my favorite people. My late husband and I became acquainted with them through square dancing, and enjoyed many wonderful conversations with them. Gerry was a man of many interests, always willing to try something new. He was thoughtful to others, and thought deeply and logically about many subjects. While I haven't seen him for several years, I remember him fondly. Nancy Balogh

Dear Jane and Michael, Please accept my deepest sympathy in your loss. I have fond memories of visits with both your dad and your mom -- they were always so welcoming and interesting to talk with. I have a picture your dad drew hanging on my bedroom wall, and I've kept every one of those beautiful Christmas cards he created. I am praying for your comfort. God bless you,
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
