DANIEL J. LYNCH, JR. of Manlius, NY passed away at his home on January 25, 2020 surrounded by his family. Dan was predeceased by his beautiful wife Margo Anne (Bradt) Lynch who died September 13, 2015 after nearly 59 years of marriage. Dan is survived by his three children, Michael Lynch of West Virginia, Jonathan Lynch of New Hampshire, and Victoria. Survivors also include four grandchildren, Melissa Lynch of West Virginia, Ryan Lynch of West Virginia, Davis Lynch of New Hampshire, and Darryl Zimmerman of Maryland. He is also survived by five great-grandchildren, Khalissa and Khalil Lynch-Nelson of West Virginia, Rhyder Lynch and Rhayne Lynch of West Virginia, and Jordan Zimmerman of Maryland; and his sister, Judith Coon of Chittenango, New York and his brother, J. Richard Lynch, of Skaneateles, New York.

Dan attended LeMoyne College, The Delhi Institute and Syracuse University. He graduated from Fayetteville Manlius High School where he was a star athlete on the 1955 New York State Section 3 basketball championship team, and was subsequently inducted into the Fayetteville Manlius Hall of Fame. He was a civil engineer by education, and worked 33 years before retiring from the New York State Department of Transportation as an assistant civil engineer.

Dan's greatest joy was sharing his life with his children and grandchildren and many friends in the Manlius area. He loved receiving every bit of news available about his children and grandchildren with whom he enjoyed very special relationships.

Dan was a true outdoorsman as evidenced by his enduring passion for hunting and fishing. He was also an active member of the Fayetteville Manlius Alumni Association, and he enjoyed many longstanding friendships with his fellow Fayetteville Manlius graduates and their spouses.

Dan was an exceptionally intelligent person, self taught on investments, computer technology, and woodworking. There was nothing he could not fix, as evidenced by his 55 years of renovating and maintaining his home in Manlius.

Dan's family is pleased to invite his many friends to attend a Memorial Service and Celebration of Life in his honor which will be held at the Newell-Fay Manlius Chapel, 8171 Cazenovia Road, Manlius, New York on the 15th day of February, 2020 at 11 AM. An informal reception will immediately follow at the Calvary Club, 4801 Troop K Road, Manlius, New York. There will be no calling hours. Internment of cremated remains will be private.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Dan's memory to the American Lung Association.

To Dan's family: I had the great honor of working with your Dad at NYSDOT. He was a true gentleman with a great work ethic and attention to detail. When I remember him, it is his wry smile and twinkle that comes to mind. Our condolences in your loss.

I am so very saddened to learn of the death of Dan Lynch. He was such an outstanding member of my class at the Fayetteville-Manlius High School. He also was a real leader in keeping the class of 1955 together all of these years, by sending us notes, planning reunions and just being a great friend. I just read his beautiful obituary outlining a true life to remember. May I wish my most sincere condolences to each member of his wonderful family. My mother and his Mom were very close friends, for which I was always so grateful. I will always remember this wonderful friend.....May God bless this wonderful man. He has been loved by all.
