Obituary

John R. Lynch, 64, beloved husband for 39 years of Mary (Amato) Lynch, of Wadchu Road, Westerly, passed away at his home on Friday, March 13, 2020.

Born in Springfield, Mass., he was the son of the late Raymond Lynch and Ellen A. Lynch Moilanen.

John was the owner of Boss Heating and Cooling in Charlestown. He was a communicant of St. Pius X Church where he was a Eucharistic Minister, and for the last eight years his weekly devotion to Eucharistic Adoration at Immaculate Conception Church was an important part of his service to God. John loved the ocean, fishing and was often found working on clocks in his spare time. His family and faith were most important to him; he felt blessed with all that he had and was known for helping others in need.

He will be dearly missed by his loving wife Mary and their three children, Kellie A. Lynch (Stephen) of Hamden, CT, Brian J. Lynch (Emily) of Hope Valley and Matthew R. Lynch (Emily) of Westerly. John also leaves his two siblings, Harold F. Lynch of Coventry, RI and Sally A. Mitchell of Westerly; four grandchildren, Anderson, Brody, Wilhelmina and Milo; and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his sister Anita Miller and step father Aimo Moilanen.

Mary, Art and I are so sad that John has died. We pray for him and the whole family every night at Adoration. He was a wonderful man who always helped without being asked. We were going to the wake when we got a call that it was not opened to the public.
Lots of Love,
Helen and Art Macauley

Dear Mary, Kelley, Brian and Matt, Our deepest sympathies upon the death of your beloved husband and father. We are truly upset that we are unable to say our final goodbyes and try to ease your burdens. John was a truly spiritual person, giving all he could to each and every person he encountered. Rest assured that he is in the arms of Our Blessed Mother.
Feel free to call if we can be of any help and consolation to any and all of you. RIP dear friend JOHN.
We love you.
Paulette & Harvey
