A longtime resident of San Angelo, Lynn was the son of Homer Alton and Helen Phillips. He was an avid reader as a child and was always curious about how things worked. He followed after his father and grandfather and became a mechanic as a young man. His engineering mind was always at work whether it was working on the family farm, contracting as a welder or tinkering with computers. His early understanding of computers led him to own his own store and supplied many of the rural towns surrounding San Angelo with their very first computer labs.
Lynn is survived by his five grandchildren: Kenedee, Isabella, Jett, Rhyen and Foxx and one grandchild Brilee. His two sons and their spouses , David and Jacque Phillips of Austin, TX and Justin and Dodi Phillips of Lubbock, TX.
