John E. Lynch

 



John Edwin Lynch, age 84, passed away peacefully in hospice care on March 25th, 2023 in Coeur d’Alene, ID. John was born on May 25th, 1938 to Albert and Florence Lynch. He grew up in Palmer, Massachusetts with his three brothers, one being his twin, and one sister. He met his wife, Norene, in Chicago and was married for 63 years. They lived in Florida and Minnesota before settling in Boring, Oregon where they finished raising their three children. There he was known as the Boring Birdman as he bred and raised many tropical birds. John also enjoyed woodworking and made treasured pieces for his family and friends. He had a long career working for Northwest Airlines as an Operations Agent. John and Norene retired back to Florida where they lived for 27 years. They made lifelong friends wherever they lived. They recently moved to Rathdrum, Idaho to be closer to family. 

John was a hero to many as he didn’t let cancer or losing his leg at age 36 stop him. He continued to work, learned to golf and ski, and participated in bowling leagues. He loved his family and friends along with his parrot, Chi-Chi, and beloved dog, Teddy.

John is survived by his wife, Norene, and three children, Lori Mattson (Joel),  Dale Lynch (Anita), and Amy Roberts (Brent). He had six grandchildren, Jeremy Haragan, Tyler Lynch, Brandon Lynch (Breanna), Tristan Roberts (Brandon), Alex Roberts, and Madison Roberts. He also had one great-grandson, Ramsey Lynch.

He was a loving husband, father, and friend. He touched the hearts of everyone he met. He will be deeply missed but forever loved and never forgotten.
