County mourns loss of Bobby Lynn

County mourns loss of Bobby Lynn

Funeral arrangements are pending for Wilson County Pct. 3 Commissioner Robert Harold “Bobby” Lynn. Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney confirmed that Lynn passed away at approximately 2:30 a.m. Feb. 15.

Lynn, who battled various medical ailments over the past few years, was being treated in a San Antonio hospital. The 63-year-old Republican was recovering from surgery after a recent throat cancer diagnosis.

In addition to being colleagues, Quinney and Lynn were also brothers-in-law. Quinney is married to Lynn’s sister, Alene.

“The nurse told Alene this morning that [Lynn] asked for a cup of coffee,” Quinney said Feb. 15. “When they came back, he was already gone. He passed away very quietly.”

Lynn was first elected as Precinct 3 commissioner in 1996, beginning his term Jan. 1, 1997, said Wilson County Clerk Eva Martinez.

Pct. 4 Commissioner Larry Wiley said that Lynn’s service to the county was part of a family tradition. Lynn’s father, Harold, is a retired county road maintenance worker and his son, John, serves as Wiley’s foreman.

“Bobby worked every day for the benefit of Precinct 3 and he is going to be missed,” Wiley said of his colleague.

Quinney considers Lynn’s death a tremendous loss to his precinct and to Wilson County at large.

“He was thought of very highly by the people of his precinct,” Quinney said. “He had a heart as big as Texas.”

Quinney said Lynn recommended that his foreman, Ricky R. Morales, be named as his successor in the event of his death. This is the subject of a special meeting set for 9 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 22. Friday, Feb. 18, is the tentative date for Lynn’s funeral service.
