Lynch Jr, Robert Emmet, age 87, of Minneapolis, passed away on April 20, 2020. He died with his niece and nephew praying at his bedside. Preceded in death by parents, Robert Sr. and Mildred Lynch; siblings Thomas, Mary Schuster, Patricia Tkach, Irene Thomas, James. Survived by sister, Lucy Spohn, sister-in-law, JoAnn, many nieces and nephews and so many friends and recipients of his generosity, especially priests of the SSPX. Rob showed his love and devotion for his family by taking on the burdens of his siblings, when no one else could commit to the time and resources needed, and finally the care of his sister fulltime, in her illness, for many years, until her recent death. He was full of Irish humor and a great defender of the Traditional Catholic Faith. Visitation at Gill Brothers Funeral Home at 58th and Lyndale Ave S, Mpls, on Friday, April 24th from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Outdoor Requiem Latin Mass Saturday, April 25th, at 11 a.m. at Flaherty's Arden Bowl, 1273 West Cty Rd E, Arden Hills, MN 55112. Private interment at Fort Snelling National Cemetery. Memorials preferred to Immaculate Heart of Mary Academy, 875 Manomin Ave S, St. Paul, MN 55107.

Robert was a wonderful and generous friend to all of us who gardened at the community garden next to his home.
We will all miss his waves and smiles and interest in what we were growing. Robert shared his garden hose and water with us free of charge and for that and his friendship we are grateful. He will be missed. Nancy Rand
