Wroe Wiley Lynch

2022 ~ 2022


Wroe Wiley Lynch, 75, of Brackettville, Texas, lost his brief battle with cancer on Wednesday, May 4, 2022, in Kerrville, Texas.

Wroe was born in 1947 in Odessa, Texas, to Helen and Wroe Lynch. He graduated from Odessa High School in 1965 and attended Sul Ross University before enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corp and serving in Vietnam. Upon his return to civilian life, he tried his hand at the insurance business, but later found his calling as a firefighter in both Bryan and La Porte, Texas. After his retirement from the fire service, he moved to Brackettville and spent the last 25 years as co-owner of the Lone Star Goat Ranch. He loved each and every goat, donkey, sheep, guinea, dog, cat… and the occasional pet deer. He was one of the best-read men you’d ever hope to meet  and could speak to you intelligently about virtually any subject. He was a proud Marine and a strong Christian right up to the very end, and his friends and family will miss his many stories, his sense of humor and his uproarious laugh.

Wroe is preceded in death by his mother Helen Hayne Wiley Lynch; his father Wroe Lynch; his son Wroe Wiley Lynch, Jr.; his wife Kaye DeMoss Nixon Lynch, and his brother James Mason Lynch. He is survived by his long-time partner Genie Wallen Nixon of Brackettville; his daughter Elizabeth (Buffy) Lynch Rochard of Brackettville; his son Justin Lynch of Beaumont; two stepsons Toryn and Kevin Nixon of Leakey and Kerrville; three grandchildren, Meagan, Matthew, and Michael Rochard of Houston; and his sister Cynthia Lynch Sharp of Grand Junction, Colorado.


The family will hold a private graveside service in Lone Oak, Texas, Monday, May 16, 2022; and a celebration of life memorial for friends and family in Junction, Texas, TBA.
