Jack Lynch was my partner for 23 years in Delray Beach, FL. Jack was the ultimate physician--smart, caring, and professional, as well as a wonderful family person. He was a tireless worker in the hospital and the community, including the American Heart Association. He will be missed by his family and many friends

Bill Earnhart, Delray Beach, , FL

To the senior member of our practice I say farewell. Jack was an excellent physician who represented his profession with the utmost confidence and expertise. He carried on the Duke tradition in his practice of pulmonary medicine. I will miss him as a friend and mentor. God speed.

From Pat, Nancy & Bill, our deepest heartfelt thoughts go out to all of the Lynch family. Capt. Jack was a great man, doctor and friend to all of the Lorne family. We will always remember the Marlin story and all those fun times fishing off the Whaler and Bertram. Today i'll have a tear in my eye when i look at the marlin's tail in the office, but will have a heck of a smile remembering those fishing days and knowing Capt. Jack is in a better place with continued calm seas...

The Lorne Family, Delray Beach, FL

My condolences to the Lynch family. At Revelation 21:4 Jehovah promises to do away with death forever. We look forward to this beautiful hope that Jehovah God promises us in the near future. May Jehovah God be with your family during this difficult time. For more information and encouragement that has helped me through difficult times such as this is jw. org that offers hope and comfort for the future.

SAVANNAH, GA -- Harold John “Jack” Lynch, Jr., MD (85), died July 1, 2017 after a brief illness. He was born and raised in Miami Beach, FL and was the son of late Harold John Lynch, Sr. and Edna Floyd Lynch. He graduated from St. Patrick High School, Miami Beach, FL. He received his bachelor’s degree in 1953 from Georgetown University and M.D. degree in 1957 from Georgetown University School of Medicine with Alpha Omega Alpha Honors. Jack completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine in Jersey City, NJ at Seton Hall College of Medicine. Jack served in the U.S. Public Health Service in Kansas City, MO. He completed a fellowship at Duke University in Pulmonary Disease and Allergy.   He practiced internal and pulmonary medicine for 32 years with Lynch, Kennemer & Earnhart in Delray Beach, FL.

More impressive than his accomplishments in medicine were his dedication to his family, generosity to his community and devotion to his wife of fifty-two years, Kathleen Nolan Lynch. Jack and Kathleen raised five children and were active members of St. Vincent Ferrer Catholic Church and school. Jack participated in numerous community organizations including the American Heart Association and the Kiwanis Club of Delray Beach. He was a member of the Bethesda Memorial Hospital medical staff, serving on numerous committees throughout his time in practice and also as Director of Medical Affairs. During his leisure time he enjoyed fishing, sailing, international travel, growing orchids and spending time with his grandchildren. He and Kathleen retired to Savannah, GA in 2001. After the death of Kathleen, Jack was fortunate to be blessed with the love and support of Barbara “Bobbie” Stallings of Atlanta and The Marshes of Skidaway Island, GA.

Jack is predeceased by his wife, Kathleen, sister, Catherine Jane Lynch Heinen, and his daughter, Ann Marie. He is survived by daughter, Jane Lynch O’Donoghue (Tim) and their children, Jack and Will of Charlotte, NC; son, John Lynch, MD (Christy) and their children, J.P., Sean, Chris, and Patrick of St. Louis, MO; daughter, Joan Lynch Lafranchise (Frank) and their children, Liz and John of Savannah, GA and Nashville, TN; son, Bill Lynch, MD of Charleston, SC; daughter, Cathy Lynch Buckhorn, MD (Bob) and their children, Grace and Colleen of Tampa, FL.

The family would like to thank the Marshes of Skidaway Island in particular their nursing staff for the care and support provided to Jack and Kathleen through the years. A private memorial service will be held at a later date. Memorials may be made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
