The York College family mourns the passing of David Lynn, who died at home, surrounded by his family on Wednesday night after a hard-fought battle with brain cancer. He served for nearly fifteen years on the YC Board of Trustees as Treasurer and Chairman of the Finance Committee and most recently as Chairman of the Board. Lynn’s service to his alma mater began in 1985 when he returned to campus as the Business Manager. Later he was named Vice President of Finance and also served as interim president for a time. He was recognized in 2012 as the York College Alumnus of the Year.

Lynn was a CPA, and for many years was the president of Sequoia Consulting Group based out of Indiana as well as owner of several other businesses in Nebraska. He and his wife Judy (Layton ’74) were married 45 years and had five sons: Travis, Joseph, Zachary, Sterling, and Benjamin. David was a member of the East Hill Church of Christ in York where he served as an elder until health concerns caused him to resign.

A visionary, an encourager, and an advocate for Christian education, Lynn’s leadership and example will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Lynn was 65.
