BENJAMIN FUNERAL SERVICE 918-273-2700...…….. Howard Dayle Lynch, Jr. was born on January 13, 1950 in Guthrie, OK, the only child of Howard Dayle Lynch, Sr. and Catherine “Katie” O’Neil Lynch. He passed away at his home in Muskogee, OK, on April 8, 2019. He grew up in Nowata, OK, where his parents worked for the school district and all three were dedicated to their community.

Howard did all the things a young kid in a small town would do - play football, baseball, golf, run track, and excel in the Boy Scouts. But fishing was the sport that he continued to enjoy throughout his life, from Oklahoma bass to Georgia trout.

It was probably those special times in the outdoors that led to a lifetime interest in landscaping and gardening. He became a Master Gardener and brought his harvest to the table as an excellent cook.

After graduating from Nowata HIgh School in 1968, Howard attended Northeastern at Tahlequah and Oklahoma State University, studying education and landscape architecture. He later enlisted in the U.S. Army and served as a code interceptor with tours of duty in Alaska and Viet Nam. He was honorably discharged with several medals of service in 1973.

Howard was predeceased by his grandparents and father. He is survived by his mother Kate, of Round Rock, TX, son Adam Lynch of Broken Arrow, OK, and granddaughter Peyton Lynch of Orlando, FL. He also leaves behind numerous cousins and extended family.

Howard was my first playmate. He has always been dear to my heart and his memory provides me with vivid images of play since we were 5 yrs old. He was the only man I known who was confident enough in his manhood to let me play Tarzan and him be Jane. We shared early memories that grew out of shared imagination and love of life. Although I lived out of state and did not keep up with him in his adult life I know he must have continued to live life to it's fullest as a genuine and loving person. His mother Katie was my second mom. She was devoted to Howard and Dayle as well as she was to my daddy Willie Smith. Katy, I will hold you close to my heart and send my love and prayers. Love, Nancy Smith
