Lynn Milo Ransom, husband, father, grandpa and friend passed away peacefully on August 5, 2021 in his home. Lynn was born July 22, 1948 to Don and Idella Ransom in Preston, Idaho. Lynn was raised in Preston and graduated from Preston High School. After high school, Lynn joined the National Guard and also went to work for Washington Construction where he worked for 18 years. Lynn met the love of his life, Maryann Hendrickson in Preston and they were married on May 12, 1972. Together they raised 3 children, Garen, Richard, and Kari. Lynn and Mary bought Ransoms Country Store in the spring of 1987. They operated the convenience store for 29 years.
Lynn was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints where he enjoyed home teaching with his long-time partner and friend, Mike Hollingsworth. Lynn enjoyed golfing, fishing, hunting, 4wheeling with their friends, watching the Pittsburg Pirates And the Denver Broncos play ball. He also enjoyed tinkering in the stock market. Lynn and Mary loved to travel to exotic locations together, but loved their trips to Washington to visit Mary’s family and friends even more. He looked forward to his August road trip, by himself. He always took the backroads instead of the interstate and we never knew where his adventures would take him.
