D. Lynn Simler, 78, passed away on July 12, 2021. He was born on March 25, 1943, to Thomas Simler and Marge (Nicoson) Simler in Lafayette, Indiana. After completing his education, he worked for many years as a licensed plumber with Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 157. He married his loving wife, Karen (Lancaster) Simler, on August 28, 1971, and they have been happily married for 49 years.

Lynn was preceded in death by his parents, Thomas (Marge) Simler; his brothers, Thomas Simler, and Bob Simler; and his sister, Pequetti Bowkamp.

Lynn is survived by his wife, Karen Simler; daughter, Debbie (Paul) Simler-Goff; grandchildren, Paul, Jeremy, Stephanie, and Joshua; several great-grandchildren; as well as many nieces, nephews, and friends in Naples, Florida and in Lafayette, IN.
