Corbett, Lynn A.'s Guestbook

Dianne, We are at NKC Hospital and just heard of Lynn’s passing. We are so saddened and shocked and sorry we did not know until now. You have our deepest sympathies and prayers. He was one of Vincent’s first bosses and such a good friend all these years. You cannot know what you two meant to us, especially the last weekend at the Alamo. It meant so much you came to see us one last time before we closed. As always, Lynn wanted to help and your hugs and good wishes made closing easier to bear. We are just so sorry and know nothing we could say could lessen the pain of losing him. But please know how highly we thought of him and you and how just seeing his smile and looking into his baby blues could make the current problems of the business day just melt away. He was the epitome of A Good Man and a True Gentleman. Of course he will be missed, but we are honored to have known him. With much love for you both, Marion and Stacy

Lynn was one of the best people on the planet. Everyone could always count on Lynn. I had dinner with Lynn and Diane a few months ago and he seemed so at peace with himself and with his life. He was a culture-builder wherever he went. He will be sorely missed by so many of us. He was such a shining star. It is a sad, sad day thinking about this.

Lynn was my first boss, as a teenager working for year at the Subway restaurant he owned. You'd expect teenagers to dread the OWNER coming in, but we never did, because he was so kindhearted and fun to be around. When I moved back in town to start my career as an eye doctor, he then became my patient, so we were able to keep in touch at least once a year. I'm glad I knew him, and am saddened to know I won't see him again. I am so sorry for your loss, and will have all of you in my thoughts and prayers.

Lynn was an Awesome, Fun, Loving Spirit. When ever he called the Heartland Service Center he would always Montori do you still have that tattoo of my security on you arm? It would make me laugh out loud literally. I had the pleasure of meeting him personally during the Summit and recently at the Diamond . This made our bond so much stronger. I spoke to him the week before he was called home. He said I hope all is well, have a great week you & your family. I was in a sad place when I heard of his passing, but I know he is in a better place and suffers no more. He will always have a special place in my Heart for Lynn. Fly High Sweet Angel.

Jan Dahm

You will be missed.

Kara Coleman

Dear Dianne, I know Lynn was your "rock". He was always there for you. He was the most kind and thoughtful neighbor we ever had. I remember the pain and love in his eyes when he lost Kodi. His kindness and love for everything living will no doubt be rewarded. Thinking of you. Only a phone call away.

Norma Pennington

I was so shocked and saddened to learn of Lynn's death. Lynn was one of the most caring and dedicated people I have ever known. His smile definitely lit up a room. His mother, Lois, and my mother, Carmen Davis, worked together for many years at the North Kansas City License Bureau. He was devoted to his mother and wife, and will be dearly missed. May he rest in peace and his family find comfort in the knowledge that he was so special and had a big influence on so many people.
