Lynch, Norman Casper (28 April 1916 - 31 March 2010) With Flag 
 

Norman Lynch, 93, of Neillsville died Wednesday, March 31, 2010 in the emergency room of the Memorial Medical Center. 
 

Norman Casper Lynch was born April 28, 1916, in Neillsville, the son of James and Clara (Schafer) Lynch.  He graduated from Neillsville High School in 1939.  He then spent four years in Service Company, which then led to him serving in the United States Army.  He served stateside as a supply sergeant with the 128th Infantry 32nd Division.  He was united in marriage to Marie Jeanette Kubat at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Neillsville.  Upon his honorable discharge from the military, Norman returned home and worked for the Condensery in Neillsville for 25 years.  During that time he also farmed for 10 years and worked as a police officer on the weekends.  Some may remember Norman as the school crossing guard, which he did for a number of years.  When the Condensery closed its doors, Norm went to work for the city of Neillsville until his retirement. 
 

He was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and a 50-plus lifetime member of and dedicated promoter of the Haugen-Richmond American Legion Post #73 in Neillsville.  Norm loved to go square dancing.  He also enjoyed trapping, hunting and fishing. 
 

He is survived by his wife of 68 ½  years, Marie; children: Richard (Carolyn) Lynch of Fort Wayne, IN, Lawrence (Beverly) Lynch of Milwaukee, John Lynch of Neillsville and Charlotte (Adolph) Lynch of Merrillan; eight grandchildren, Lori, Cheryl, David, Joseph, Ivy, Jeffrey, Wayne and Susan; many great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; and a brother Anthony (Angeline) Lynch of Mesa, AZ. 
 

He was preceded in death by his parents and three brothers, Clarence, James and Robert Lynch. 
 

A Mass of Christian Burial for Norman was held at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 6, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Neillsville.  The Celebrant was Fr. Woodrow H. Pace. Interment was in St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery with Military Honors accorded by the Neillsville Veterans Council.  Visitation was from 9 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at St. Mary’s Catholic Church.
