Kevin Lynch

Kevin “Lumpy” Lynch, age 66, passed suddenly on Saturday, December 24th, 2022 in Horsham, PA.

Born in Philadelphia, PA, Kevin was the fourth of five sons. Growing up, he lived with his parents, brothers, and dear Aunt Lydia in a rowhome that, he always liked to remind his children when telling stories, had only three bedrooms and one bathroom. While not in school, he spent much of his time reading science fiction novels and playing football with the other kids on his street, a group that affectionately dubbed themselves “The Wall Gang” and would hold many reunions throughout the years.

Beginning at Rohm and Haas, where he worked full-time while earning his bachelor’s degree at night, Kevin had a long career as a network engineer. It was here that he met his beloved wife, Diane, he would have two children and several dogs.

Kevin loved listening to The Beatles and 94.1 sports talk radio, planning family vacations, going to the movies, and making his children laugh. Though, above all else, he loved going to and watching Philadelphia Eagles games with Diane

Kevin is survived by his loving wife of 32 years, Diane Class Lynch, two children, Casey and Kelly Lynch, and dogs, Buddy and Vance.
