    I’ve know you since birth, we became very close in our teenage years. You were always there for me and so giving. You were like a brother to me. I felt protective of you. I have a million memories of you, and suddenly that’s just not enough. There are no words that can describe this level of sadness. You were an amazing brother,father,son,friend. I am so thankful to be able to say I knew you. Thank you for every laugh, every smile, every hug. You meant the world to me. Life won’t be the same without you. Sleep well my friend.

                                              I had the pleasure and privilege of working with Lynden at Young Energy over the last seven years. Lynden was an incredible leader and mentor. He taught me how to be a good leader, and how to keep calm cool and collected in stressful situations. He taught me a valuable lesson in life and leadership, which is to not get worked up over things that are out of my control. Lynden was without a doubt , one of the most easy going people I’ve ever met. He became more than a colleague, but a dear friend to all of us. His bright smile and carefree attitude will be sincerely missed by all of us at the Young Energy family. Rest easy, Lynden. Condolences to your family and friends.

                                                  He was a mentor. His heart was big, he truly cared about his workers. He pointed in the right direction a few times. He is and always will remain a great man.

                                                    I worked with Lynden since he first started at Young. His sense of humor and smile were infectious to all he worked with. Lynden put his heart into everything he did and was so proud of what he had achieved. When I got the phone call on Monday, I could scarcely believe what I was told. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
