Obituary: Lynn A Crow

This obituary is based on information submitted by the family.

Lynn A. Crow, a La Honda resident since the early 1970s, was found deceased at his residence on June 15. He was 63.

Born at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, he traveled a lot as a youngster since his dad was in the Army. He lived in Japan and Germany before the family settled in Honolulu, Hawaii. He graduated from the University of Hawaii and went on to the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara.

Mr. Crow lived in Hayward, Foster City and Redwood City, working as a real estate agent, before discovering La Honda in the early 1970s. He searched for the "perfect lot" and settled in for more than 40 years, said his brother Jerry Crow.

There, he added to photography his love of restoring cars, most notably MGBs and Cadillacs, his brother said. "In La Honda, Lynn found the land, trees, and peace that blended well with his solitary, spartan, and minimalist lifestyle."

The family invites his friends to gather on July 6 or 7 at Alice's Restaurant, 17288 Skyline Blvd. in Skylonda, to share stories about Mr. Crow.
