He lived most of his life in Alpine County, California, Hope Valley and Woodfords. Lynn graduated from Douglas High School in 1965. He joined the U. S. Navy in 1967 to serve 6 years during the Viet Nam war. He was assigned first to a boomer diesel submarine, then to a fast attack submarine, Seadragon, as a Nuclear Reactor Test Engineer.

After returning to Alpine County in 1986, he owned a small business designing and drafting house plans in California and neighboring Nevada. He also volunteered for many years as a firefighter, emergency medical technician, and search and rescue team member. He contracted with Alpine County to serve as the Emergency Medical Services Coordinator, providing training and support to several county departments and volunteer organizations. Lynn established the first ambulance service in Alpine County. Lynn was passionate about education, and often stated that a day without learning something was a wasted day. He served 8 years and 1 month on the Alpine County School Boards, 1988–1997. He also enjoyed hunting and fishing in his recreational time. He loved the outdoors, sharing his passion with his father, brothers, children, grandchildren, and close friends.
