Lynch Family Memorial Fund

Doug Lynch went home to Jesus on March 31st, 2019, after being diagnosed with Glioblastoma (brain cancer) last April. Doug remained steadfast in his trust and hope for Jesus throughout his journey with cancer. Glioblastoma is an incurable, aggressive brain tumor that ultimately took over, even after one surgery and rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. Doug endured this very difficult journey with unwavering faith in his God, trusting the plan for his life. Even until his final days, he was bringing joy and laughter to any room.

Doug's Celebration of Life is scheduled for Saturday April 13th at 11am at the Rock Community Church.

Helen, his wife, remained faithful to him through it all. She immediately stepped into the role of his caretaker and she never wavered in her devotion to him. Doug was dependent on her for his needs and she fulfilled her vows to him, "in sickness and in health." Helen's strength is unmatched.

But the financial burden of the medical bills, day to day expenses and now the funeral costs have become overwhelming. Because Helen has given her life and devotion to Doug through this journey, we want to bless her and her family by carrying that financial burden with them.

This fund covers the costs of the funeral home services, outstanding medical bills, memorial service expenses, and miscellaneous financial burdens Helen has incurred.  If you would like to contribute flowers to the memorial service as well, please have them sent directly to:
The Rock Community Church
12472 W Belleview Ave Littleton CO 80127
the morning of Saturday April 13th.
Or contact Whitney Lynch to arrange flower delivery or drop off.

Thank you for loving the Lynch family through the passing of our beloved father, husband, brother, son and son-in-law.

Doug married his youth group sweetheart, Helen, in 1987, and they have been married for 31 years.

Doug graduated from Central Washington University with his B.A. degree in criminal justice, but he had a call on his life to the pastorate. Doug graduated from Northwest Graduate School of the Ministry acquiring his master’s degree in Theology. He served as a pastoral intern at Overlake Christian Church in Kirkland, Washington. He then served full-time at Boulevard Park Presbyterian Church in Seattle, Washington where he was as a gifted youth pastor.
