Joe Lynch was a friend to many.
That is shown by the outpouring of support today following the death of the Wolcott High School Class of 2014 graduate. Lynch, who was a Post University honor student and former star football player at Post, Wolcott and Holy Cross, passed away this morning. He was a solid football player, but if you read the posts of those who knew him, he was an even better human being. Here’s what was said about him, because his friends say it better than I ever could.

“Joe, we hope to honor you every day and love life the way you did,” read a tweet on the Post Sprint Football account. “You will be forever missed. Once an Eagle, always an Eagle. Rest In Peace.”
