Lynn Arden Edmondson, Jr., Age 59 of Free Soil passed away peacefully the morning of Sunday, February 16, 2020 at the Villas of Traverse Point with his dog Missy and family by his side. Lynn fought a year long battle with brain cancer. On March 10, 2019 the brain tumor was found. He had surgery five days later at Spectrum Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids. Weeks of chemo, radiation, & avistin drips followed with trips to Reed City, but to no avail the tumor continued to grow.

Lynn was born on April 24, 1960 to Lynn & Sharon (Bradford) Edmondson at Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital in Frankfort. He grew up in Pierport and attended Onekama Consolidated Schools from K-12, graduating in the Class of 1979.

Lynn farmed most of his life in Michigan & Missouri. He would take his daughters to cattle fairs and rodeos in many states over the years with the big Simmental Cattle winning many awards and ribbons at the guiding hands of Valerie & Leah. He returned to Michigan in August of 2012. He was a member of American Legion Post #10 Auxiliary and the VFW Post #4499 Auxiliary both in Manistee.

Lynn is survived by his dog; Missy, special friend; Roxie Orris of Stevensville, daughters; Valerie (Samuel) Smith and grandsons Clint & Kurt Smith of Troy Kansas, and Leah (Zachary) Bajos and granddaughter; Rhyan and grandson Rhett Bajos of Charlevoix, MI, his father Lynn E. Edmondson, Sr. of Manistee, sisters; Sheila Cobb (Patrick Pruyne) of Manistee and Shari (Kevin) Haddrill of Lady Lake, FL, niece; Christina Cobb, great niece London O’Neil and great nephew; Jasper O’Neil all of Manistee, as well as many aunts, uncles, & cousins.

He was preceded in death by his mother; Sharon, his step-mother; Mary Esther, brother-in-law; Verl (Gene) Cobb., maternal grandparents; Arden J. & Helen (Pratt) Bradford, and paternal grandparents; Erford & Evelyn (Patterson) Edmondson, and many aunts, uncles, & cousins.

Lynn’s body was donated to Science Care in Chicago. Following cremation he will be returned to his daughter in Charlevoix and a memorial service will be planned in later spring.

On Saturday February 29, 2020 a Celebration of Life will be held at VFW Walsh Post #4499 in Manistee. A time of sharing will be held at 1:00 PM with the celebration continuing to 4:00 PM.
