On the evening of December 28th, Lynn Baciuska, Sr. was traveling home with his wife, Synthia Baciuska, after a nice evening with friends when they were struck from behind by a drunk driver resulting in the death of Lynn. For those who did not know Lynn, he was one of the most caring, kind hearted individuals you would ever meet and would do anything, for anyone, who was ever in need. Lynn was also known as the “deer shop man” as he own/ran the North Afton Deer Shop for over the last 40+ years. Lynn was loved by so many people and his passing will leave a whole in so many hearts forever.
Unfortunately, Lynn had been diagnosed with MS over 15+ years ago which had been a real challenge for him and then nearly (3) years ago he was diagnosed with lung cancer which did not allow him to have a life insurance policy. He battled both illnesses like no other… despite all the challenges associated with MS and his cancer he never gave up and fought like a champion. In fact, less than (1) month ago his family attended a follow-up cancer appointment with him and were given the fabulous news that the cancer had not spread and was in remission. That was absolute amazing news and gave him a new outlook on life which makes this unexpected death even more hard for the family to wrap their arms around.
His wife, Synthia, remains in the hospital recovering from injuries sustained in the accident and it is unknown at this time when she will be released.
Lynn’s life was taken way too early and he leaves behind a loving wife, three sons and their wives and seven grandchildren.
All donations will be used to help Synthia out during this difficult and tragic time.
Please keep Synthia Baciuska and the remaining family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Thanks so much!!!!
