Edward Lynn Connelly age 73 of Springville, TN, died Monday, November 20, 2023, at his residence.

 

Lynn spent the majority of his life buying and selling cars, but his passion was restoring classic cars. When he was not working on cars, he loved spending time with his family.

Later in life he moved from Dyersburg, TN, to Springville, TN, where he lived out his summer days on the pontoon boat. Life on the water was hard to beat in his book.
