Lynn passed away June 3, 2024, at 3:30 am. He was born October 19, 1943 in Port Alberni, BC.

Pre-deceased by both parents Thelma and Clifford, sisters Adrienne and Pamela. Lynn is survived by his loving wife of almost 60 years Patti, who were married October 30, 1964.  Daughter Theresa (Tim), Son Randy (Anna), Brothers Paul (Rhonda), Phillip (Melanie) Sister Monica (Bryan), Grandchildren Talon (Alycia), Tasia (Matty), Ashtyn, Great Grandchildren Breena-Lynn and Zinnia.  Lynn has many nephews and Nieces but was very close to niece Angie who called him ‘Pa Kettle’.

Lynn had many aliases: Lynnwood, Dadio, & The Colonel, along with many others but will always be remembered as ‘BUBBA’.

Joining the Army at age 17 for a short stint then returning in 1966 with his wife and daughter. Lynn was stationed to Germany and took that opportunity to travel Europe. Afterwards he was stationed to Edmonton where he then decided to leave the service and return home to Victoria where he started his crab fishing and diving career.  Forty years later retiring and traveling throughout the US and Mexico with his family.

Lynn was a fun loving, adventurous man with a cantankerous view on certain things.

We will miss his mischievousness, smile, spontaneity, wit and his contagious laugh.  Playing games with his grandkids, Lynn would always refer to ‘The Little Man has escaped’, ‘The Dhost is in the bedroom’, and Rule #1 was Don’t go into Bubbas drawers, Rule #2, Don’t go into Bubbas drawers, Rule #3 !!! – well you can guess what that is (T&T will understand this).  With many, many more stories and memories that we will cherish forever.

A Celebration of Life will be held on June 22, 2024, 1:00 pm. at the Trafalgar/Pro Patria Legion, 411 Gorge Road East, Victoria, BC.

    My condolences to the Smith family. I remember Uncle Lynn one night at dinner many years when I was a child and he had said pass the smear! I looked at my parents very confused, only to find out it was slang for butter. Just one of many memories. RIP Uncle Lynn. Niece Jane
