  3. Lynn was a good man and friend to me. I will always be beholding to him (and all his family) for helping my Dad in the final years of his life. I will especially miss his laughter and quick whit. My heavy heart goes out to Sue, Tammy, Christy, and the rest of his surviving family for I am sure that his love and strength will be badly missed and impossible to replace. May GOD bless you all, give you the strength to endure, and help you find peace!! All my love,

  4. I was very, very upset by the passing of Lynn! My mom & I played cards with he & Sue on the 3rd Saturday of each month along with the “over 40 card group”. We ate lunch and then played our favorite “Hand N Foot” card game. Lots of fun and a lot of laughs and memories. Lynn could make us laugh so much – he was a blast! And the love he & Sue have for their family – just beautiful! They would bring their 13 year old grandson, Anthony, to play cards. How cool is that! God Bless you Lynn – it was a pleasure knowing you!

  5. So very sorry to hear of Lynn’s passing. I only knew him for a very short period of time. I met Lynn and his wife, Sue, playing cards at Theresa’s Family Restaurant. He was a very funny and intelligent man.

  6. 1994 when i met lynn at torrance memorial medical center, he is not only a collegue, but a big brother and a friend, when he tells a joke you really have to listen or he will never repeat it again, miss the loud laugh my friend goodbye … my deepest sympathy and my prayers to lynn thomas anderson ‘s family

  7. Grandpa, There will never be another like you. You always made me laugh and I loved how much you loved to harrass me..I miss it already. One of my first and strongest memories of you is when I would leave the house I would say, “See you later” and you always said, “Thanks for the warning.” So one last time, “See you later and that is a warning and a threat.” I love you and thank you for being the greatest man. You are truly missed.

  8. I knew Lynn when we were children. He was a year and a half younger. I was very close to his Aunt Ada, his father’s sister…with whom I became fast friends when my family moved to Lucia Avenue in 1950 (I was four).
