Daniel E. Lynch

April 21, 1949 - Nov. 27, 2013

       Daniel E. Lynch of Springs-Fireplace Road in East Hampton died on Nov. 27 at Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead. He was 64. The cause of death was congestive heart failure, his family said.

       According to a relative, Elaine Lynch of Aquebogue, Mr. Lynch had been a truck driver for many South Fork companies. When not on the job, he went fishing in his boat whenever he could, often with his son, Daniel Lynch Jr. of Flanders. He was cremated and his ashes will be spread at his favorite fishing spot, Ms. Lynch said.

       He was born on April 21, 1949, at the East Hampton Medical Group to Adele and Gus Lynch of East Hampton. Ms. Lynch recalled that Dr. Frances Cooper did the delivery.

       He married a Mattituck resident, Margaret Kelly, now of Florida, with whom he had his son and two daughters: Patty Woorden of upstate New York and Hannah Lynch of Florida. All survive him, as do 10 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
