Lynn was born to Harvey and Alma Deason in Charlotte, N.C. and we knew immediately he was special in many ways. Diagnosed with Downs Syndrome, he endeared himself in so many ways to all who met him. His Dad died in 1970, so it was Lynn and Mom, and under Mom’s love and care , he painted, collected stamps for charity, covered coat hangers to sell for his tithing to church, attended special education classes at Monroe High School, and worked at Union Diversified Industries in Monroe and Foodlion, Wingate. He joined four others at Stewart Street Group Home upon its’ opening and this extended family thrived, through Special Olympics, beach trips ,Wingate U.M.C and loving everyone they met. Lynn never missed the Joy Prom and Elvis Pressley and Dolly Parton were his favorites. Lynn lost his eye sight a few years ago, but his determination persisted until other health issues no longer allowed him to be in residence at the group home, and he has lived at Lake Park Nursing since May.
