Luke Lawson Lynch
Luke Lawson Lynch passed away peacefully on Monday, Oct. 5th, in Grand Junction, Colorado, surrounded by family. He was 55 years old.
Luke was born in Anaco, Venezuela, on May 26, 1960, to Don L. and Christine G. Lynch. At the age of one his family decided to move to Glenwood Springs, Colorado, and bought a ranch up 4 Mile. Luke loved living on the ranch and being a “cowboy.”
When Luke was five, the family moved into town. He graduated from Glenwood Springs High School in 1978. After high school he attended Abilene Christian University where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BBA in Marketing and Management in 1982. He went on to attain a Master’s degree in Information Management later in his career. Luke predominantly lived in the Dallas/Fort Worth area where he worked for Pitney Bowes for 29 years. He excelled in his career with Pitney Bowes, setting many records in the company. He retired as Director of Channel Management for the company in 2013.
Luke loved Colorado and the wide variety of activities it offered. You could frequently find him fly fishing the Roaring Fork River below his childhood home. He loved Maroon Bells, where he caught his first fish, and hiking Mt. Sopris with friends. He enjoyed a variety of outdoor sports, particularly skiing, hiking, golfing and scuba diving. He loved people and always had a story to tell or an encouraging word to share.
Luke grew up attending the Glenwood Springs Church of Christ. He came to know and love the Lord and was baptized into Christ in Grizzly Creek while in High School.
He actively shared his faith and the many blessings God gave him with people he encountered. His relationship with the Lord was very important to him and served as a guide throughout his life. He loved to sing. After returning to Glenwood Springs he had the opportunity to sing with the Sounds of Praise Choir as well as Aspen Choral Society’s Handel’s Messiah.
He loved his family and had an intense love for his children. He was a wonderful father, son, brother and friend to many.
