Brewster V. Lynch



He was described as a dependable husband, father and grandfather; he had a strong work ethic and was a man of few words. He was independent and head-strong, yet fair, compassionate and tender-hearted.

He is survived by his loving family including his wife of 16 years, Sondra “Sandi” Lynch; daughters, Susan Rowan and husband Mike of Van, Ann Pesce and husband Paul of Palestine; grandchildren, Audrey Bell Mazzu and husband Nick, Dorothy Ann Bell and fiancé Michael Perez, Danny Lynch and wife Brandy, Shelly Bailey and husband Justin, Megan Lynch, Damon Pesce and fiancé Crystal Rose, and Spencer Pesce and wife Jennifer. He is also survived by nine great-grandchildren and many beloved nieces and nephews; and extended family, Loni and Jessie Dollison of Diana, and Kevin and Jenny Harris of Greensboro, N.C.; and faithful four-legged companion, Maggie Lou.

Honorary pallbearers will be Charles Dupree, Tom Corley and Bob Barnes.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Hospice of East Texas Foundation, 4111 University Blvd., Tyler, 75701 or a charity of your choice.
