The following Miami Herald Notice was sent out by Seafarershouse.org:
We note with sorrow the passing of a friend to seafarers, former President and CEO of Seaboard Marine, Mr. John Lynch.
John was our 2006 International Golden Compass Award recipient and a long-term supporter of the work of Seafarers' House at Port Everglades. His own years at sea left him with a special appreciation for the safe haven of centers like ours and we are grateful for his years of commitment to our mission.
Our prayers and sympathy extend to his family and circle of loved ones.
A memorial Mass will be held on October 7 at 3:00 pm at St. Raymond's Catholic Church, 3475 SW 17th Street, Coral Gables.
