Ronny “Shot” Lynch, 64, of Center, Texas, passed away on January 11, 2018 in Center. He was born on October 19, 1953 in Center to Arthur Lynch and Marcelline Parker Lynch Green. A graveside service will be held at 2:00 PM on Sunday, January 14, 2018 at Oaklawn Memorial Park with Bro. Johnny Lewis officiating. 

A visitation will be held from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM on Sunday, January 14, 2018 at Mangum Funeral Home.

Shot grew up in the Goober Hill community in south Shelby County. One day on the Center square, he happened to meet Penny Hutcherson and his life changed forever. That brief moment turned into 36 years full of memories and love. Shot treasured the time he spent with his family, friends, and neighbors. His grandkids were the lights of his life. He could spend countless hours just watching them rip, run, and play in the yard. He followed them wherever they went, and he especially liked watching Haleigh play softball. Those babies had his heart, and every second he was with them, priceless memories were made. 

Shot was an avid outdoorsman. No one around loved to hog hunt and coon hunt as much as him. His passion for hunting earned his dogs the title of “best around.” People that knew him could tell stories for days about Shot and his dogs. The interesting part about his hunting adventures was that he did it riding the back of a mule instead of on a four-wheeler. Shot’s theory was that his mule could go places those four-wheelers couldn’t. If you couldn’t find him at work or at home, you knew he was in the woods. This was his sanctuary, his place of peace. Some people travel the world and many of their friends and family would even invite Shot and Penny to go on those fun and exciting trips. Shot would encourage Penny to seize that opportunity, but as for him, he was content in nature. Shot saw the world in the woods. There was no need for bright lights and big city. He was surrounded by magnificence and beauty in the great outdoors right here in East Texas. 

Shot was also known for his “junkin.’” He made a hobby of collecting and hauling junk. He could find a use for just about anything. Everyone who travels back and forth through the southern part of Shelby County will pass by Shot’s place. It was his little piece of paradise where he would keep all of his junkin’ findings. It’s hard to find anyone who doesn’t know Shot Lynch. He never met a stranger and would be happy to have a conversation with any who wanted to stop by just to talk.

Shot spent fifteen years working for Shelby County Precinct 2 and the last few years working for Precinct 3. His co-workers became more like family and he valued them all. He was a member of Antioch Baptist Church. Shot loved his church and his church family very much. He was a kind, light-hearted, and genuine man who will be dearly missed by all.

Shot is survived by:
His beloved wife: Penny Lynch of Center

Son: Nathan Lynch and wife, Beth of Joaquin

Brother: Donny Lynch and wife, Lucille of Marshall

Sisters: 
Diane Jackson and husband, Jerry of Nacogdoches
Sharon Johnson and husband, Tyson of Center

Sisters-in-law: 
Jayne Crain of Center
Lizann Burke and Roy Blackshear of Center

Grandchildren: 
Haleigh Lynch of Joaquin
Bryleigh Lynch of Joaquin
Cutter Lynch of Joaquin

A host of nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, cousins, and friends. 

He is preceded in death by his father, Arthur C. Lynch; mother, Marcelline Parker Lynch Green; stepfather, James T. Greer; mother-in-law, Peggy Hutcherson; father-in-law, Hutch Hutcherson; brothers-in-law, Roy Crain and Mike Burke; and nephew, Cody Johnson. 

Pallbearers will be Spud Faussett, Chuck Raymond, Jimbo Faussett, Lewis Ross, Roy Blackshear, Tony Denby, Mike Powdrill, Keith O’Rear, Vic Cooper, Todd Clark, Craig Hendricks and Ron Hendricks.

Honorary pallbearers are Gaylon Howard, Terry Walton, Johnny Magby and the employees of Shelby County Precinct 3: Charles Barr, Roy Cheatwood, David Cheatwood, Jimmy Daw, Rex Haas, Bob Jones, Bob Cheatwood, Kevin Meyers and Michael Stahl.

Memorial donations can be made to Antioch Baptist Church, 1645 FM 2608, Center, Texas, 75935.
