Obituary of Daniel J. Lynch Jr.

Daniel "Danny" Joseph Lynch Jr, 59, of Endicott, New York, passed away, Saturday, July 15, 2023, with his beloved fur baby Auna right by his side. Danny was predeceased by his father and mother, Daniel and Dawn Lynch, and his close friends Mark Yurko, Bobby Williams, Matt Visingard, and David Wallan. He is survived by his daughter Mackenzie McDevitt (Brendan), his sister Kelly Lynch Craver (Matthew Craver), his niece Lexis Budine, his 3 grandchildren, Carson, Donovan, and Bryant McDevitt, his ex-wife Suzanne Roma and "ex-hubby" (as he fondly referred to him) Jimmy Roma and his fur baby Auna. He is also survived by many friends who were like family but are not limited to the Yurko Family, the Visingard family, David Vorhees, the Larnerds, Jeff Zopp, Patricia Thomas, Angela Wallan, and everyone at JB's (Jennings Street Brasserie). Danny was born in Endicott to Daniel and Dawn Lynch. He grew up in Maine with his parents and sister Kelly Lynch Craver. He attended and graduated from Maine Endwell Highschool. When he was younger most people knew him as a wild guy who had no fear. He loved Dale Earnhardt and spending time with and occasionally getting into some trouble with his friends. On February 18th, 1997, Daniels daughter, Mackenzie, was born. On this day, he had found his true purpose in life, being a father. He exceeded every expectation that comes with fatherhood. There was nothing in the world he wouldn't have done for his "sweetheart". He made sure he told her everyday he loved her whether that was on a phone call or through a text. He attended every sporting event, school event, and was there for all the good, bad, and hard times she went through. Danny was a hard-working man and worked in construction all his life but his true passion and what he was the best at was being a crane operator. Anyone who had worked with him always said he was the best crane operator they had ever seen. Everyone that knew Danny recognized his heart of gold. He did everything he could for anyone who needed help, regardless of whether they asked or not. He had an outgoing personality, an infectious laugh, and had the ability to make anyone laugh whether it was intentional or unintentional. He loved deeply and made sure all the people in his life knew how loved each and every one of them were and how much they meant to him. Alcoholism is an ugly disease and is what ultimately took him from us but the one thing it will never take away is the beautiful legacy of the kind man he was and the impression he left in all of our hearts. The family will receive friends for calling hours from 3-5pm on Friday, July 21st, 2023 at Coleman and Daniels Funeral Home in Endicott with a short service to follow.
