  1. So very sorry to hear. Lynn has been a dear friend for many years and we served in the CARE BOARD together for many years. He was a hero, patriot and excelled at everything he tried. God Speed my dear friend.

  2. Prayers from the late “Jesse M. Steverson” family from Bonifay, Florida. Earline STEVERSON Morris, Vera STEVERSON Horne, Lynn Horne, Jesse Brent Horne, Lisa Horne Williams, Matthew STEVERSON Williams, Jessi Mae Williams all from Phenix City, Alabama. We heard about the passing of Lynn STEVERSON from our family member Eric J. Buonopane CSM (Command Sergeant Major) @ Camp James E. Rudder, Home of the Florida Ranger Camp. We were at Camp Rudder For CHANGE OF COMMAND ceremony for our family member Eric… Tuesday before the funeral of Lynn Steverson when we discovered his picture on the wall at Camp Rudder and was informed of his passing and when we saw that he was from Bonifay, Florida we knew he was our kin folk. Eric would have been at the funeral had it not been that his CHANGE OF COMMAND ceremony was same time as funeral. He did send someone from Camp Rudder to Honor Lynn STEVERSON & Thank him for his service. (my cell phone 706-575-0922)
