It is with great sadness and sorrow that we announce the passing of our husband, father and friend, Lynn E. Schrier, 88, of Stow, Ohio, on Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2017.
Born March 8, 1928, in Seymour, he was the son of Edna Brown and Victor Schrier. In June 1951, he married Cynthia Sargeant, who survives, and over the years, they had four children.
Lynn attended elementary and high school in Seymour graduating in 1946. He received a Naval ROTC scholarship and enrolled at Purdue University and graduated in 1950 with a Bachelor of Science in chemical engineering and a Bachelor of Science in naval science and tactics. Lynn was commissioned in 1950 and reported for active duty aboard the USS Leyte in Korea. He was later transferred to the staff of the Supreme Allied Commander Atlantic at NATO Command, where he was assigned as administrative officer for logistics.
He was discharged from active duty and accepted employment with Goodyear Atomic Co. in 1953. He later was transferred to Goodyear Aerospace in Akron as a senior engineer and participated in many government contracts for various weapons and flight simulators. He became an employee of Loral Corp. in 1987 and retired in 1990 as a vice president of program management. Continued education was important to Lynn, and he earned a Juris Doctorate from the University of Akron School of Law in 1976. He was admitted to the Ohio Bar in 1976.
He was active over the years in many community and church activities including serving on the building committee of the current sanctuary of First United Methodist Church in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.
