Obituary for Robert J. Lynch

Robert J. Lynch, 83, of Seabrook Village in Tinton Falls, NJ passed away peacefully on Monday, August 12, 2019 surrounded by his family. Born in Bronx, NY, Robert, also known as Bob and Sonny, lived in Old Bridge and Marlboro before moving to Ocean then Jackson and most recently Tinton Falls. Bob was a self-employed film editor of TV commercials, secret clearance films for the government, as well as documentaries and movies until he retired at the age of 55. Bob was a very dedicated husband and father who adored his family and friends above all. He was a proud member of the Friendly Sons of the Shillelagh in Old Bridge and truly loved being Irish. Bob was an avid chess player, a fisherman who never ate fish, a die-hard Giants fan for more than 70 years and an excellent provider for his family. This tough boy from the Bronx was well respected, always stuck up for the underdog, fun-loving guy who was a true gentleman always. Sonny and his wife, Bobbie, loved to dance the Lindy, travelled the world together and were married for over 50 years. Bobbie was the love of his life. Sonny was predeceased by his beautiful wife, Roberta “Bobbie” Lynch in 2008, his brother Jimmy Lynch and his sister Florence Shulman. Surviving are his children (spouses), Robert Lynch, Colleen DeLuca and her husband, Tony DeLuca and Patrick Lynch and his wife, Ellen Lynch, his sister Ellen Lynch McLynch of Florida and his grandchildren: Colton DeLuca, Jordyn Lynch and Aiden Lynch.

Bob owned a firm in New York City that did TV commercials for major firms. One of them was Budweiser. I visit his studio in manhattan and he is in the middle of ediring a commerical wit Ed McMahon and the power boat Miss Budweiser in the background. I am amazed at his expertise. he told me to bring a cassette tape of the Old bridge Friendly Sons Pipe Band and a script for the announcer to read with pipe band music in the background. He aske announcer who does all of the Exxon commercials to do the voice over gratis. I pick up the tapes the following week and deliver them to radio hosts all over New York. Thirty one thousand people show up at the 1971 Friendly Sons Irish Feis and Scottish Games. Bobs commercial was the reason for that turnout.
always enjoyed his company and his stories. Thank you Bob for all you have done for The Friendly Sons. Rest in peace in heaven with your beautiful bride.
