Charles “Charlie” Edward Lynch

June 27, 1952 - December 8, 2019

Charles “Charlie” Edward Lynch, 67, a resident of Cape Coral, FL for the past 33 years, formerly of Bradenton, FL, passed away Sunday, December 8, 2019 in Cape Coral. He was born June 27, 1952 in Lockport, NY.

Charlie was of the Catholic faith and attended St. Katherine Drexel Catholic Church in Cape Coral. He was also a veteran of The United States Marines. Charlie started as a mechanic at Goodyear in 1980 and soon became a manager. He continued managing tire stores until 2004 when he became disabled. He was an avid lover of fishing, riding / working on his motorcycles, collector of guns, and loved to travel. In the past he was in the American Legion, Cape Coral Bass Club, Knights of Columbus (Fourth Degree), and a fellow “Tequila Worm Brother”, but what filled his life more than anything was his wife, children, and grandchildren. Nothing gave him more happiness than to spend time with them especially during Christmas. He was there for anyone anytime to help with anything needed and truly enjoyed seeing the smile on their faces when doing so. Charlie will be missed so much. He always said he was “One with God” when out on the water and now he is up in heaven with Him catching all of the fish his heart desire.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 39 years, Shauna Lynch of Cape Coral; loving mother, Dorothy Patterson of Cape Coral; two loving children, Dana Huff (Scott) of Cape Coral, and Denise Lynch, also of Cape Coral; sister, Lisa Francoline (Jim) of CT; as well as three grandchildren, Christian Huff, Cole Huff, and Carson Brewer.

Charlie was preceded in death by his father, Elmer Lynch; as well as a sister, Susan Ficarra.

A Celebration of Life will be held 10:00 AM Saturday, January 11, 2020 at The American Legion, 1401 SE 47th St., Cape Coral, FL 33904.

Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.

    I’m so sorry I never really had the opportunity to get to know Charlie on a very personal level. However reading his obituary speaks volumes of what kind of person he was. May he rest in peace. He and hus family will be in my prayers
