Carman David Lynch
Obituary for Carman David Lynch
It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Carman who left us on March 1, 2021 in Windsor Elms. Carman was a hard working farmer, logger and beloved school bus driver. He was a loyal and loving brother, husband and father. Carman was a jack of all trades. Born in East Uniacke, he built the house he lived in all his life with the help of his brothers, and continued to work the land he grew up on. An avid outdoorsman, Carman selectively logged his land as long as his body would let him. Carman also logged, drove truck and operated machinery for Royce Hefler; someone he had immense respect for. A lover of nature, he was an avid hunter and skillful marksman in his earlier years, eventually protecting and feeding deer in his later years. He was someone you could count on when things get hairy. There was no problem he wouldn't take on, no machine he couldn't operate, and no child he couldn't deal with. A school bus driver of 35 years, Carman loved watching the kids grow up. He was first in line to help anyone, even (and sometimes especially) those he didn't see eye to eye with. A loyal brother; nothing was more important than family. He was always there to lend a hand. He wouldn't leave someone stranded. Carman embodied what it is to be a hard working provider; leading by example. It didn't matter how cold, sick or sore, there was always plenty of firewood to heat the house. Carman never sought the spotlight, and enjoyed the simple things in life; a cold Oland's, a feed of lobster, his Honda ATV, John Deere tractor, and his red Ford Diesel towing the 5th wheel. Son of the late Dorris and Lula (Moore), he leaves behind his wife Jacklyn; son Justin (Jessica); brothers Sherman (Frances), Victor and Lester (Theresa); sisters Verna Fast, Maxine Ross and Shirley Wiebe. Also survived by sisters-in-law Thelma, Beulah; and brother-in-law Derrick Morrison; and dozens of nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by sisters Rheta Lawrence, Lillian (Dolly) Van der Mark, Olive (Polly) Levy and Irene Morrison. Also predeceased by brothers Lloyd, Charlie, Gyde and Jamie; mother and father in law, Florence and Walter Bennett. A very special thanks to the always professional Dr. Raj Bhanot, his brothers Lester and Victor for helping out when Carman needed it, and to Mark and Vicki Lynch for keeping the driveways clear and making sure everything was ok. Thanks to Dr. Iona Wile, the staff at Windsor Elms, and Krista Trider for being there for him in the end. He'll be remembered for his hat collection, soft spot for kids and dry sense of humour. A small graveside service will be held March 9th at 2pm at Oakridge Memorial in Upper Sackville.
