Obituary: William L. â€śBillâ€ť Lynch, Jr., 75, of 1205 N. George St., Rome, passed away on Wednesday, May 23, 2007, at St. Lukeâ€™s Hospital in New Hartford, following a brief illness. He was born on January 16, 1932, in Rome, the son of William L. Sr. and Anna Keough Lynch. He attended Canterbury Prep School in Connecticut, received his Engineering Degree from the University of Notre Dame, and his Masters in Business Administration from the Amos Tuck School at Dartmouth College. On May 13, 1983, he married Ann Tarbania Peach in Rome.
Bill was the President and C.E.O. of Rome Turney Radiator Company for over 45 years, retiring in 2004. His son, Ryan, began Rofin, LLC, in early 2005; a most trusted advisor, Billâ€™s experience and vast knowledge of the power generator industry has helped the new company flourish. He was a member of St. Peterâ€™s Church. He was active in the Rome Area Boy Scouts, and the Rotary Club of Rome. He served on several boards including the Jervis Library Board of Trustees, the Utica Blue Cross/Blue Shield Board, Rome Savings Bank Board of Trustees, Marine Midland Bank Board, and the Central N.Y. Banking Council. Bill was also active in several professional organizations, including the National Association of Mechanical Engineers.

David Poutasse; one sister-in-law, Marile Lynch; and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his beloved brother and best friend, Dr. Richard J. Lynch, in 2006.
Ann and Ryan would like to express their gratitude to Drs. Oâ€™Malley, Gesauldo, Reyes, Razia, Graniero, and all the staff of Faxton-St. Lukeâ€™s Healthcare for their wonderful care and compassion during his illness.
