It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lynn (“Moto”) Ernest Stein, “a large, sweet soul”, at the age of 80.  Lynn died peacefully at his home with family on June 4, 2024, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease.  He had been lovingly cared for by his devoted wife, Suzanne.  He is survived by his three daughters, Emily Dorothy, Karyn Evelyn, and Sarah Elizabeth, and three grandchildren, Urayoan Xavier, Imogen-Sue Evelyn, and Sage Alamae. He is survived by his sisters, Evelyn Benjamin, Carolyn Wright, Marilyn Delaguila, and Gwendolyn Baldo.  His brother, Edward Stein, predeceased him. Lynn was born on August 18, 1943, in Flushing, NY to Edward and Evelyn Stein. He grew up in Patchogue, Long Island and was the youngest of six children. He was much loved by his family and many nieces and nephews and was always the life of the party.  

Lynn was true to himself and led by example.  He led a life of service to his family, his community, and his country, believing he was part of something larger.  He obtained a bachelor’s degree in Physics from SUNY Geneseo, an MBA from NYU Business School, and a law degree from Albany Law School.  He served as a Captain in the U.S. Marines (1965-69) during the Vietnam War as a Marine Flight Navigator. He worked as an attorney for General Electric (GE) and, subsequently, the Bank of Boston. He started out as a corporate lawyer, but later opened his own practice in the small town of Princess Anne, Maryland. He was also a member of the Rotary Club, volunteered for the Board of Elections, and sang in the church choir.  

Lynn loved the outdoors, adventure, and travel.  In his youth, he hitchhiked and rode his Indian motorcycle across the U.S.  He later explored Thailand and Malaysia with his family. After retiring at the age of 65, he spent 10 years traveling around the U.S., Mexico, and Central America with his wife in their truck camper.  He loved camping, the beach, and the ocean.  

He instilled in his daughters a love of nature and learning.  He will be deeply missed by his family and lovingly remembered by many.  The legacy of his love, light, and laughter will continue to live on in our hearts and memories.
