Lynn lost his valiant fight against acute myeloid leukemia on May 24, 2014.
Lynn was born August 9, 1927, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Eric Lawrence Broman (a first generation Swedish-American) and Rachel Lindgren Broman (born in Stockholm). Lynn was always proud of his Swedish heritage. He attended Lincoln Junior High and graduated from South High School in 1944. Lynn joined the U.S. Navy in 1946, even though he could not swim, and received an Honorable Discharge in 1948. That same year he married Lois Ann Jenkins and worked as a painter while attending the University of Utah where he received his B.S. in Biology in 1950.
Lynn and Lois decided he would attend Dental School, so the family moved to San Francisco where he received his D.D.S. from the University of Pacific College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1956. The family eventually returned to Salt Lake City where Lynn practiced dentistry on Second South and Tenth East for 40 years until 1996. At the time of his retirement, he was providing dental care to the grandchildren of his patients. Lois passed away on November 18, 1991.
Lynn later married Lorrie and for 23 years they have traveled, golfed and thoroughly enjoyed their second home in St. George making many life-long friends at Bloomington Country Club.
His hobbies always included activities he could do with his family: Golfing, Camping, Fishing, Boating at Flaming Gorge, Lake Powell and Strawberry. He was the consummate fix-it guy; always puttering around the house and yard. Lynn especially liked Easter Egg hunts in the backyard and family get-togethers at their home in Salt Lake City. Lynn was famous for his Christmas day grand buffet.
Lynn is survived by his wife Lorrie, his children: L. Eric (Linda), Rebecca (John), Jeffory (Maria), Bryn, Ted (Stephanie) and Lorrie’s children LoriLee (Cameron) and Trent and Lynn’s sister Joan Moore as well as many grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
Lynn was happy, congenial and a true gentlemen. His patients said he was the most gentle of dentists. He was truly a loving and loyal father and husband and we will all miss him.
