J Lynn became a Mason in 2007, Lodge #7217 and then became a Shriner. He was a member of Iola Missionary Baptist Church. J Lynn raised his children with discipline, humbleness and Christian morals and values. All that knew him knew how particular he was. He hand wrote on his will one last instruction to his children; “Be sure to change your car oil.”

He is survived by his wife Dorris; daughters, Lynnette Henry (Brett) and Teri Law (Kerry); son, J Lynn Tyler, Jr. (Amanda); grandchildren, Suzanne Stoneham, Elizabeth Urban, Eric Law, Tyler Law, Sarah Tyler, and Rebekah Tyler; and his great-grandchildren, Jackson, Jeffery and Julia Stoneham, Jobe and Knox Law and Jesse and Mason Urban.

J was preceded in death by his mother, Idella Tyler; sister, Lillie Mae Willeford; brother, J. W. Tyler; grandson, Jeremy Law; and his great-granddaughter, Jamie Stoneham.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial contributions be made in his memory to Iola missionary Baptist Church or the Shriners Hospital.
