    We met this sweet man and his wife on a Holland American cruise in December and instantly felt like we had known them for a long time. We spent many hours just talking and laughing on this cruise. Lynroy and Jack instantly bonded and hung out on the private island in the Bahamas.

    We want to extend our deepest condolences to Melonie and Family.

    My deepest condolences to the family, I met Lynroy A few months ago and within that short period of time we have become friends, and as he start his transition from earth to glory we become brothers, in the hospital he ashored me that he has given his life to the Lord and was ready to go, Lynroy I think Elton John said it best, your candle burn out long before you’re legend ever will, his last request to me was that I pray for his wife so she will always be in my prayers..Lynroy we never got to play that game of domino’s so we would never know who is better, am sure you are not worrying about domino’s because you are too busy taking pictures but until we meet again my brother peace and love. PEACE AND LOVE.

    Lynroy spent his life looking for happiness. He would quietly celebrate little delights, here and there, where ever he could find them. May he fully experience, in perfection, the peace and joy that he wished to share with everyone in life.
    Melonie, David, his dedication and affection for both of you was apparent every day at work – in conversation, pictures, stories he shared. Please accept my sympathy and prayers.

  29. Jim Kieran on July 7, 2017 at 9:23 pm

    Lynroy may be gone, but he will never be forgotten. This kind, lovable man touched all those he came in contact with. Very few people have the aura that Lyroy had and if this world were full of Lynroys it would be a much kinder place for us all.
    My condolences to Melonie and the Brade Family.

  30. Mark E. Drinkwater on July 8, 2017 at 11:20 am

    I remember Lynroy as a dignified, friendly, and caring man. He always had a smile for you. He taught me to be a better, more respectful person through his example. His family was never far from his thoughts and he was always happy to share stories about football or home life. I am glad I had an opportunity to know him, sad I didn’t take better advantage of his time here.

    Sincere condolences to the Brade Family.

  31. Karen Bryan and Family on July 8, 2017 at 1:26 pm

    Melonie I’m so sorry. Our hearts are with you.
    Lynroy was always a bright spot to my day. I enjoyed his lunch time philosophy and his ever present smile. He is missed.

  32. Jan & Joe Lafratta on July 8, 2017 at 4:24 pm

    Melonie you gave Lynroy so much love and fun. You made his life complete! Joe and I loved the both of you from the start.

    You were both blessed to have a wonderful marriage and life together.

    Joe always like to make him laugh. I can hear him bellow when I think of him.
