Lynn was born on the 4th day of May 1921 in Groesbeck, Texas to Ernest “Bud” and Lola Belle Pippin. Lynn graduated from Groesbeck High School.
Lynn was a truly remarkable man with a strong will. He was incredibly caring, genuine and a father figure to many. He would always ask about you and yours and when he saw you again he would inquire, remembering every detail you had shared. Wherever he went he made friends. He loved his Groesbeck Goats High School Sports, the Baylor Girls Basketball and let’s not forget his sweet tooth and his love for candy! He also had a love for auctions, antique furniture and repairing furniture.
Lynn retired from Crown Central Petroleum in Pasadena, Texas. He and his wife Martha Pippin owned and operated the Groesbeck Antique Mall.
