John Wesley Lynam, Jr.
Age 72 of Newark, DE
Passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 12, 2019 with his loving family by his side.
John was born to the late Mary Jane (Pendergast) and John Wesley Lynam. He was a patriot. He joined the USMC Reserves serving for over 4 years. He was a dedicated employee of Delaware Trust Company. There he met his wife, Pat. The two were married on August 31, 1979, and they have spent 39 happy years together raising their family.
John had many hobbies and interests. He loved all Philadelphia sports teams and was especially proud of the Eagles Super Bowl win. He was a car enthusiast and would jump at the chance to go to any car show he could. John was proud of his strong Irish heritage and was quite the jokester. He often spent his free time doing puzzles and word searches. But most of all, John was a family man. Everything he did was for the benefit of his wife, daughters, and grandchildren.
In addition to his parents, John was preceded in death by his daughter, Jessica, and mother-in-law, Rose Hoinowski.
He is survived by his wife, Pat, and daughters, Jenna (Steve) Parke and Dana (Alex) Lano. Poppop will be dearly missed by his adoring grandchildren, Cameron, Eli, and Harper Parke, and Baby Lano arriving in October 2019. He is also survived by his brother, Ken Lynam; his brother-in-law, Hank Hoinowski (Margaret); and a large extended family.
All services for John will be private.

I like to express my deepest sympathy for your loss. It was never God’s intent that death should rule over mankind. - Romans 5:12; 1Corinthians 15:26, 55; God will do away with death. But for now God has provided hope-as stated at John 5:28, 29. During this most painful time please find comfort from God’s word.

Pat, Jenna and Dana so very sad to read of John's passing today. I have many fond memories of the time I shared with John at Delaware Trust Co. John was a great boss and for me will be remembered for making Indirect Lending what it became. We lost track after DTC and for that I am sorry. Please take care and know that he will always be with you. Love, Wendy & Lance Elwood
