HARTFORD, CT – Eugene Patrick “Bud” Lynch, Jr. was born and raised in Saratoga Springs, New York by Eugene Sr. and Inez Betts Lynch, along with 3 caring sisters. At St. Peter’s School and Academy, “Bud” was better known for speedskating, sports and socializing than for studies. During summers he worked at the famed Saratoga Racecourse leveling the track in the tractor, mucking out stalls, and dishing tips to his father before bets closed. He graduated from Providence College in 1966 and shortly thereafter answered the call to serve in the United States Army. While posted in Arlington, Virginia, Gene met the love of his life, Karen Dee Renzulli of Fairfield, Connecticut. They married in 1969 and eventually settled in Hartford, where they raised their daughter Tracy and son Kevin. Gene worked as a medical salesman, Mobil Oil station manager and later at WireMold, East Granby High School and H & R Block. In addition to family and career, Gene served greater Hartford on the board of the Connecticut Science Center and was a volunteer and donor to many other civic and charitable causes. Gene’s leisure passion was spending time at the Connecticut shore with his loved ones.

Gene passed peacefully in his sleep the morning of Good Friday, March 29, 2024. He was predeceased by his parents and his sister Janice Hannon, and is survived by sisters Colleen Lynch of New Brunswick and Margaret Lynch of Saratoga Springs, his devoted wife Karen of Hartford, children Tracy of Hartford and Kevin of Atlanta, Georgia, grandchildren Hollie and Walker Lynch of Atlanta, and too many cousins and nephews to list.

A memorial celebration will be held at Sheehan Hilborn Breen Funeral Home, 1084 New Britain Avenue, on Friday April 26, with a gathering at 1 p.m. and a brief remembrance at 2 p.m. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made in Gene’s honor to Salvation Army Greater Hartford.
