Obituary

Harry Wood Lynch, age 70, was born in Yadkin County to the late Rufus and Willie Mae Lowery Lynch on July 14, 1950.

At the young age of 24, Harry entered the Army and served in Korea for 15 months. Known as "Red Eye" Harry formed a true brotherhood and in his brothers' words... "A brotherhood that lived in perfect harmony" The True Brotherhood includes Desi Cooper of Edenton, NC, Charles Ford of Burlington, NC; Ray Holmes of Burlington, NC, Wayne Wade of Yanceyville, NC and Charles Thomas of Hershey, PA.. Harry was definitely known as the life of the party! From Korea to North Carolina and from church to home, Harry was definitely that man!

In words of the brotherhood: "Stand in Power", "Red- Black- Green" and "Power Check to our Brother"
When Harry returned home, he worked at Chatham Manufacturing for many years. Before returning to his hometown of Yadkinville, he joined Piney Grove Church in Harmony, NC. There he served on the Usher Board and was a faithful member of the church. He enjoyed spending time at drag races and watching westerns, but mostly he was known for patiently waiting for a listening ear. Harry always had a story to tell. If you were in his presence, you were sure to be laughing.

Following a period of illness, he moved in with his daughter and son-in-law before passing away, surrounded by family, at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital on February 1, 2021.

In addition to his parents, Harry was preceded in death by two brothers, Bobby Lynch and Richard Lynch; four sisters, Beatrice Weaver, Betty Dobson, Ida Skinner and Mary Lynch.

He leaves to cherish and remember his life, his son, Philip (Heather) Johnson of Mocksville, NC; his daughter, Shanita (Kenneth) Dobson of Winston-Salem, NC; his step-children, Tomika Hampton of Yadkinville, NC, Jennifer Holmes of Mocksville, NC and Roy Lee Holmes, Jr. of Salisbury, NC; two brothers, David Lynch and James (Cester) Lynch, both of Winston-Salem, NC; his grandchildren, Tyla Lynch of Winston-Salem, NC, DaKiya Linville of Winston-Salem, NC, DeMarlo Linville of Winston-Salem, NC, Mattieu Sawicki-Johnson of Venice, Florida, Hailey Johnson of Mocksville, NC, Seth Johnson of Mocksville, NC, Tatyana Hampton of Yadkinville, NC, Nathan Hampton of Yadkinville, NC, Jada Hampton of Yadkinville, NC and Tyree Holmes of Winston-Salem, NC; and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins.

And I’ll never forget who really taught me how to yield. I know I wasn’t the best driver and you never yelled at me while driving you to the VA but boy when I looked over and you were holding your oxygen tank for dear life, I knew I should probably slow down now. I love you so much and I’m going to miss you
