Didn’t know John that well but enjoyed talking sometimes at his grandkids events and he was always smiling and loving on his family! He was an inspiration to me. I want to be that kind of a grandparent! ❤️❤️

In the few short years I knew John, he was an inspiration. The way he loved his family, his church family and his Sunday morning Sunday School classes. I am grateful for the personal conversations and the constant encouragement from John. I would say RIP but truth is I believe John is talking to Jesus right now and sharing his appreciation for his friends and family. Will miss you John. Thank you for teaching me how to love my family.

You will be missed by all that knew you. We had a ball at Jackson High School

David Wilson

One of the proudest moments that he shared with me was when he told me he has his family in church with him. I heard on the radio the other day about success, and succession. Can you imagine? Having your sons, and grand babies, and great grands all going to church!that is the definition of success. I will always miss looking forward to seeing my friend. With tears rolling, until that day.

John Paul Lynch, Sr.


John Paul Lynch, Sr., 80, of Yulee passed away at his home Tuesday, October 5, 2021.

He was born in Jacksonville and was one of six children born to the late Percy L. and Clara Moon Lynch.

He was a 1959 graduate of Andrew Jackson High School and attended Southwestern Louisiana on a football scholarship. After his time in college, he returned home and served his country honorably in the U. S. Navy.

For much of his working life Mr. Lynch worked as an automobile salesman at area dealerships including Kings Crown Ford, Mike Davidson Ford and Paul Clark Ford. He made many friends with both employees and customers.

Over the years he was affectionately known as “Coach” by his fellow employees and customers because of his involvement with youth sports. Always a sports fan, he played football and baseball and coached many youth-league teams over the years. He was an avid Florida Gators and Jacksonville Jaguars fan.

Mr. Lynch was especially proud of his family. He passed his love of sports and fishing to his children and grandchildren. From coaching one of their teams to going fishing with them, he loved being involved with his family. He could also be found at dance recitals, musicals, school functions, and countless sporting events, just to support his children and grandchildren.

Some years ago, Mr. Lynch rededicated his life to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Mr. Lynch was an active member of Springhill Baptist Church. He participated in the Men’s Ministry there as well as helping with the AWANA kids program and he greatly enjoyed his Men’s Sunday School Class.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his siblings, Leroy Lynch, Perry Lynch, Peggy Swain, Gloria Baylor and Pat Lynch.

He leaves behind his children, John Paul (Tammy) Lynch, Jr., Kevin Clance (Tracy) Lynch, Chuck (Kim) Lynch and Stephanie Lynch (Jon) Camp; grandchildren, Ashley, Kyle, Brittany, Tommy, Olivia, DeWayne, Stacy, Zach, Zoey and Kelvin; great-grandchildren, Aurora, Shai, Luna, Parker, Asher, Landen, Jackson, Adalynne and Oliver; the mother of his children and a former wife, Judith Clance Lynch, former wife, Jackie Lynch, and many beloved nieces and nephews.

Mr. Lynch’s family will gather to celebrate his life on Saturday, October 16, 2021, at Springhill Baptist Church beginning at 1:00 PM.
