Stanley R. Lynas, 67, of Walton, went home to be with the Lord at 5:40 a.m. Tuesday, February 21, 2023, at his home. He was born June 21, 1955, in Logansport to James D. and Rosemary (Kile) Lynas. He married Cheryl Hedger on March 2, 1973, in the United Methodist Church in Logansport and she survives. Together, they would have celebrated 50 years of marriage next week.
Stan graduated from Lewis Cass High School and attended IUK, then went to trade school to earn his journeyman’s card in plumbing, heating and cooling. He went to work at and then retired from the Anderson’s in 2016. Stan and his brother Steve owned S&S Solar for a time – before Solar really took off like it has today. Stan was a huge sports fan; he especially loved watching Notre Dame Football and the Boston Red Sox play baseball. He loved all kinds of sports, including baseball, softball, basketball, golf, you name it, he loved all sports. He even refereed basketball, coached baseball and softball, played travel basketball, and water-skied. Stan would never say “No” to anyone. If someone was in need, he was always there ready to help. Stan enjoyed date night with Cheryl, who was also his best friend and confident. They would watch shows together or go out to eat. Stan was frugal, however. He would remind you to close the door or turn out that light. He loved his family dearly including his kids, grandkids, even the grand dogs.
Surviving family include his wife Cheryl Lynas of Walton, his children, Heather (Jesse) Shafer of Walton; Kendra (Todd See) Lynas of Macy; and Kane (Rachel) Lynas of Logansport. His grandchildren are Kolton Lynas, Peyton Shafer, Dalton (Claire) Frame, Nolan Shafer, and Karleigh Frame, as well as one great grandson, Rowan Lynas. He is also survived by one brother, Steve (Teresa) Lynas of Kokomo, Sister-in-law, Cindy (Jeff) Baber of Walton, and Brother in-law, Mike (Leesa) Hedger of Kokomo. Several nieces and nephews also survive him. He is preceded in death by his parents and one sister, Janis Lynas.
