UL Lafayette Equipment Manager Lynn Williams laid to rest

Cajun Nation

And finally tonight,  
A final farewell to one of my favorite people at the University of Louisiana…
Lynn Williams, the long time equipment manager, was 56 years old.  He was laid to rest Tuesday morning, with services at Our Savior’s Church.  
Lynn, always willing to chat, offer an slush, a bag of chips and talk Ragin Cajun sports. 
I got to talk to him about a week before he passed.  That conversation, like so many others,  surrounded around uniform combinations, Cajun football, Softball and our favorite country music songs… 
Lynn, was one of the first people i met at UL, when I got to Lafayette 17 years ago.  We became instant friends!
I will miss our conversations, and everytime I slip on some Ragin Cajun gear, I’ll nod to the sky, and remember the equipment guru… Lynn Williams…
