Lynn Earl Eggleston

Article Image Alt Text

Lynn Earl Eggleston surprised us all and left us in a lurch on July 11, 2019, 15 days shy of his 76th birthday. An avid outdoorsman his entire life; his love for hunting and fishing kept him active, brought him joy, and kept food on the table.

Born in Athens to William and Alta Waters Eggleston, he grew up hunting and fishing on the Trinity River. He graduated from Cayuga High School, Trinity Valley Community College, and Sam Houston State University where he met the love of his life and wife of 53 years, Sharon Allen. Together, they hunted, fished, traveled, changed addresses numerous times and raised two children, Lyle and Lori (Thorp). He made sure his tenacity, resourcefulness, and intelligence were passed on to each of them.
