Lynar, Thomas R. Sr. September 4, 1945 - December 6, 2021

Thomas Raymond Lynar, Sr. of Mansfield, New Jersey passed away on Monday, December 6, 2021, at the age of 76.  After battling Diabetes, Leukemia, and a multitude of other health related issues through the years, Thomas died peacefully with his wife Trix by his side.

Thomas was born in Dumont, New Jersey on September 4, 1945; to father, Edward Andrew and mother ,Ruth Smith.  He is the middle of three children.  He graduated from the first graduating class of Morris Knolls High School in 1964.

Thomas was a man of many faces and was one of the hardest working men that God ever created.  Thomas worked for Coca Cola Enterprises, Williams and Hibler Lumber Yard, and Grand Union sometimes working more than one job at a time.  Thomas was an entrepreneur who owned a liquor store, vending business, and sign making business through the years. This is only half the work that he did as he took a thirteen hundred square foot, run down house from the 1840’s and built it into more than a four-thousand-square foot beautiful home.  A home that he loved to entertain at and invite everyone he knew and loved to celebrate holidays, birthdays, and life in general.   Thomas did all this while caring for his family and loved ones, traveling, and enjoying life.  Helping family and friends with projects, additions, decks, and anything that anyone needed is what he did.  Thomas spent his life working on making sure those that were around him were comfortable and happy.  Thomas also taught his children and grand children so much through the years.  Tom accomplished an incredible amount throughout his life and left a lasting impression on all that knew him.  He will be in our hearts always, may he rest in peace.

Thomas was preceded in death by his parents and brother Edward Lynar Jr.  He is survived by his wife Trix Lynar; children Dawn Marie Lynar, Thomas Raymond Lynar Jr., Jason Todd Lynar, and Sean Thomas Lynar; grandchildren Sean Robert Kondra, Jackson Elijah Lynar, Noah Oliver Lynar, Brandon Thomas King, Natalie Olivia Lynar, and Madison Grace Lynar.

A memorial visitation will be held at the Cochran Funeral Home, 905 High Street, Hackettstown, NJ on Saturday, December 11, 2021 from 1-2pm with a memorial service to begin at 2 pm.

    The children and volunteers of the Karen Nash Memorial Butterfly Garden remember Mr. Tom Lynar as the man who handcrafted beautiful birdhouses for our school garden fundraiser at Memorial School in Washington Borough. When a woodworker craftsman was needed, he reached out and volunteered his valuable time… he hand cut the replacement wood for our original wooden memorial benches of our all-volunteer schoolyard wildlife habitat pollinator garden. He offered his time and expertise so generously, always with an eager smile. Tom will be remembered as a unique volunteer who made a significant contribution. After we described the help needed, with a positive attitude, he replied, “I can do that!.” Tom is a role model who made this world a better place.
