Doyle “Lynn” Adey, 79, passed away January 23, 2019, at North Big Horn Hospital surrounded by his family.
Lynn was diagnosed with liver cancer two weeks earlier. Lynn was born July 26, 1939, in Kane, Wyoming, to Jewell and Vernon Adey. Lynn joined sister Maxine and brother Emmett. The family moved to Lovell when Lynn was entering first grade, where he continued his education, graduating in 1957.

In the summer of 1957, Lynn met Lois Burgener, and they were married on December 28, 1959. Born to this union of 59 years were three sons and one daughter: Vernon, Keela, Timothy, and Travis. Lynn worked in construction and the family lived in Michigan, California, North Dakota, and Washington, finally making their way back home to Lovell in 1965.

Lynn farmed in Lovell for several years until he started his employment with the Wyoming Highway Department. Lynn was a dedicated employee for the next thirty-one years, retiring in 2001.

Lynn enjoyed playing the guitar, fishing, gardening, his labs – especially “Buddy”, early morning visits with his “coffee buddies”, friends, and family.

Lynn was preceded in death by his parents, Jewell and Vernon; brother Emmett; and sons, Timothy and Travis.

Lynn is survived by his wife Lois; son Vernon (Mary) Adey of Oyster Creek, Texas; daughter Keela (Bob) Mangus; daughter-in-law Tammy Adey; sister Maxine Wambeke, all of Lovell; grandchildren Joshua, Kyle, and Lisa Ann Adey, Jeremy and Wes (Kaycie) Mangus, Bailey (Dan) Brunko, Jacob (Victoria) and McKenna Adey; great-grandchildren Kaiden, Karsen, Kamryn, Ryker, Colten, and Harper; and many nieces, nephews, and close friends.

Lynn will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. We will always remember his sense of humor and cherish our memories forever.

Viewing is on Tuesday, January 29, 2019 from 9:00-10:30 a.m. at Haskell Funeral Home, 605 East Main, Lovell, Wyoming. Funeral Service to follow at 11:00 a.m. at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, 1161 Shoshone Avenue, Lovell, Wyoming. Interment will be in the Lovell Cemetery following the service.

 I offer my deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Mr. Doyle Adey. This world has so many problems that effect us all, sadly we have no solutions to life's big problems; but where can we find those answers? Jehovah Gods word the Bible gives us many of those answers, as well as practical advice that we can still use even though the Bible was written over 2,000 years ago. What I would like to share with you though is the hope it provides us, and wouldn't you agree we really need hope? That hope for the future helps us to cope with the present, overcome the past and give us something to strive for so we can walk with determination toward the future. As mentioned earlier this world has many problems, we know that death is only one, yet God promises that all those problems will be gone including death and that is the hope I want to share with you. Hoping you will find comfort.
Isaiah 65:21-23 "They will build houses and live in them, And they will plant vineyards and eat their fruitage. They will not build for someone else to inhabit, Nor will they plant for others to eat. For the days of my people will be like the days of a tree, And the work of their hands my chosen ones will enjoy to the full. They will not toil for nothing, Nor will they bear children for distress..."
John 5:28, 29 "..The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, ...to a resurrection of life,.."

To the Family,
I am deeply sorry to hear of your loss. Losing my parent has been difficult for me.
However, I found this scripture helpful. At 2 Cor 1:3,4 it says: “3Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;4Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.”
Hopefully thinking about what these verses state can help your family during this time as it has for me.
