William Lynn (Vinnie) Misenhimer went home to his Heavenly Father Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013. Lynn was born July 14, 1965 in Pocatello, ID. Lynn attended school in American Falls, where he was very active in sports, active to the point of broken collar bones and two fractured ankles for a start. While in school Lynn and friends would go (bird watching down on the river) some of you will know what that is about. One of Lynn’s hobbies was watching sports, he and Direct TV and the Sports Packages got along very well. You can almost see Lynn in Heaven saying WOW all the sports channels are free now. Lynn could tell you where any team was at during the season of football and baseball. Even in the bad years he stuck by his Miami Dolphins and Cincinnati Reds. One of Lynn’s favorites is an autograph from Pete Rose when he met him in Las Vegas last year.
After high school Lynn started working at Cardinal as a meat cutter, which he did for many years, and he was very good at what he did. Another of Lynn’s hobbies was bowling; you could find him most Friday nights at Tough Guys bowling lanes always after that 300 game. Lynn enjoyed his camping and fishing in the summer and his weekends at East Fork. Lynn really enjoyed his family campouts and barbecues. He could cook a steak on a grill better than anyone I have ever seen. Seventeen years ago Lynn married Wendy, his camping partner along with his faithful dog Skinnerd. You could see him about any afternoon with his dog at the marina. Lynn touched a lot of lives through his years at the store and his years at the American Falls School District. He is going to leave a void in a lot of lives.
Lynn is survived by his wife Wendy, Pat and Larry (mom and dad), sister Carolyn (Terry) Howard of Emmett and Kerrisa and Caleb, very special niece and nephew. Lynn has many other aunts, uncles and nieces and nephews.
A memorial service was held at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 24, at PowerHouse Christian Fellowship, 2905 Sunbeam Rd., American Falls, ID. The visitation was Sunday at the church from 4 to 5:30 p.m. The graveside service was held at 4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 25, at the Neeley Cemetery.
