Obituary

Thomas “Tim” Lynch, IV

Age 79 of Aspinwall, passed away in the comfort of his home on Saturday, November 5, 2022. Born in Greensburg to the late Thomas Lynch III and the late Elisa Pierce Lynch, he was also predeceased by his wife, Susan Martino Lynch and his brother, Clay Frick Lynch II and survived by his sister, Elisa Simmons (Thomas) of Palo Alto, CA, his two sons, Thomas “Toby” Lynch V of St. Louis, MO and Daniel MacKenzie “Mac” Lynch (Mary) of Highland Park, his cherished granddaughters, Catherine, Fiona and Samantha, his longtime partner, Rose Gentile, and many beloved nieces and nephews.

Tim grew up an avid athlete attending Shady Side Academy and later Wesleyan University (CT), where he became a member of the Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity. In 1965 he joined the US Navy, serving two tours of duty during the Vietnam War and earning the Vietnam Campaign Medal with three stars, the Vietnam Service Medal, and the National Defense Service Medal. After his honorable discharge in 1969, Tim discovered his lifelong passion for travel as he spent three years working and traveling abroad, fondly recalling stories of washing dishes in Zermatt and being a “Lifty” in Austria.
 

When he returned to the States, he began his 43-year career as a Stockbroker at Moore, Leonard and Lynch, a family run regional firm dating back to 1876. From 1980 until 1989, when he joined Janney Montgomery Scott, Tim was president and co-founder, along with his two partners, of the firm Richards, Lynch and Pegher. During that same time, Tim served on the NASD Disciplinary Committee (1987-1991) and was also an original member of the Regional Investment Banking Association (RIBA) formed in 1983. Further, he became RIBA’s first Chairman when the association incorporated. He also passionately served on many boards, including Transplant Recipients International Organization (TRIO) and was a long time Head Coach and Commissioner for Aspinwall Baseball. A truly great and revered father, Tim devoted his life to raising his two boys upon the untimely passing of his wife.
 

His love of athletics and travel continued throughout his life and became interwoven as he traveled near and far for adventure. Whether riding his bike or running early in the mornings, skiing out west or trekking the hills of Rwanda in search of mountain gorillas, Tim never acted his age and holds the distinction of being the oldest man on the mountain during the time he climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. Known to many as “Timmy Tennis Shoes,” he was a member of the Fox Chapel Golf Club, Laurel Valley Golf Club, Pittsburgh Golf Club and Lyford Cay in Nassau, Bahamas. His unflappable positivity and unique charisma could fill any room and made him an endearing and engaging person to talk with. A devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend, he was a man that one was better off having known and will be missed by many.

In celebration of his life, the family will receive friends on Thursday, November 10th from 2-4 & 6-8 p.m. at the Lynch residence, 201 Lexington Avenue, Aspinwall.  A funeral Mass will be held Friday, November 11th at 10 a.m. at Christ the King Parish, St. Scholastica Church, 309 Brilliant Ave. Aspinwall.

In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully suggests memorial contributions to Outdoor Odyssey, 450 Boy Scout Road Boswell, PA 15531, www.outdoorodyssey.org/donate.
