  2. Bob and I are so sad and heartbroken…Ed was such a warm, loving and kind man. Full of laughter and grace. A true “gentle…man” He will be missed by so many. We are all blessed to have known such a wonderful man..husband… and friend. Heaven has gained a courageous angel…his spirit lives within us all.

  3. I’ve yet to meet a kinder, gentler or more honest of a man whether inside or out of the labor movement! I have the privilege of knowing Eddie as a good friend. His legacy must be as a family man, husband, father and grandfather! You ran a good race, you will be missed my friend♥️

  4. We got to know the Lynch family through our son’s who wrestled at St. Charles. What fun & exciting times those were! Ed was truly one of the nicest, kindest men we ever met. We are thinking of the entire Lynch family as they deal with their grief. So sorry.

  5. The first time that I met Ed I thought what a nice guy. Then our boys John and Adam wrestling together at Saint Charles in Parma. Ed and I would make all kinds of moves to help John and Adam wrestle better while sitting in the stands but they did not need our help they were good wrestlers and good friends. Ed was the kind of guy that always made you feel better after you talked to him because he really cared about you as a person and a friend. Ed and his beautiful wife Petra had 3 smiling, kind, and loving children just like him and Petra. It was my pleasure to see Ed coming towards me because I knew it was going to be a good day. Ed, I’m sure you are making God smile now just like you did everyone else all of your 76 year journey to heaven. I will surely miss you buddy!! Heaven has another good guy

  6. Ed I was privileged to know you and call you a friend. You and Petra raised a wonderful family. You made this earth a better place.

  7. We are so sorry for your family’s loss. No amount of words could express our thoughts and prayers.
    God only lets us borrow his angels for a little while, before he calls them back home. God bless.

  8. Ed, you were loved by us all and will be missed, but never forgotten. You and Petra had a loving and strong marriage and raised two wonderful sons and a lovely daughter. You’ve been blessed with Grandchildren. You had a brother by your side and came from a very loving family. My sympathy and blessings to you all as you pull together during this sad time. Ed is watching over you all.

  9. John,
    We are so sorry for the loss of your father. Our sincere condolences to you and your family. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
