3 Comments on “Lynn Earl Roderick

  1. Lynn was a wonderful coworker who had my deepest respect and I really enjoyed all those years working together. He greatly loved his wife and family and my heart goes out to Elaine and family.

  2. I am so sorry to read of the passing of Lynn. I never knew him personally, but talked to him and wrote to him for many years as we put names and information into the Montpelier School data base. I enjoyed talking to him; he often called me on my birthday. I will miss the information we have shared over the years on finding obituaries for former students at the school.
