Jeremiah John Lynch II ’61 died peacefully in Boise, Idaho on Tuesday, Jan. 17, surrounded by his immediate family. He is survived by his high school sweetheart and loving wife of 55 years, Kathryn Berkeley Lynch and their five children: Jack Lynch, Kelly Lynch Tonkin, Jay Lynch, Kevin Lynch and Sally Lynch Randall ’91. He was known and loved as “Papa” by his 13 grandchildren. Jerry was born on Aug. 24, 1939 in Washington D.C. to John Emmet Lynch of Butte, Montana and Kessing Moroney Lynch of San Mateo, California. He grew up in San Mateo and attended St. Matthew Catholic School and Junipero Serra High School, class of ’57. Jerry graduated with the infamous class of ’61 from SCU. He was a proud Bronco! In 1965, he graduated from Hastings College of Law in San Francisco. Jerry and Katie settled in Foster City, California in 1968. There they raised their five children, and many others, until moving to Boise, Idaho in 2011 to be closer to their children and grandchildren. Jerry joined his father’s law firm, Wilson, Jones, Morton and Lynch, in San Mateo before forming Lynch and Nave in Burlingame, California. He had a great love for the law and was a trial attorney specializing in eminent domain and condemnation. Jerry was a huge family man and an avid sports enthusiast. He enjoyed hunting and fishing in the San Francisco Bay, Potter Valley, Half Moon Bay, Los Banos, the Butte Sink, Grizzly Island and Tule Lake. But most of all, he loved the people of Montana and spending time hunting and fishing with friends and family in the Big Hole Valley near his second home in Divide, Montana. Jerry’s life will be celebrated this summer in the Bay Area on a date to be determined.
