Lynn and Alton would stay in Gulfport and raise their two children, Charlie and Rachelle. Lynn was a dispatcher by trade in the service industry for over twenty years before retiring. Together, Lynn and Alton did everything, from racing horses to being in a boat fishing as often as they could, Lynn loved spending time with her family. This included spending her nights at the dirt track to watch her son and son in law fight for first place or getting some shopping in with the girls! Lynn was a sweet soul who will be missed by all who loved her. She is preceded in death by her parents Arthur and Fortunato (Cuccurullo) Tillman, one sister Liz Walters, and one brother Bill Irwin.
