Lynn McClurg Crump of Idaho Falls formally of Pocatello and McCammon, passed away on April 25th in the comfort of his home. Lynn was born to Henry Elmer and Ida Vietta Crump in Preston, Idaho on October 3, 1933. He was the sixth child in the family of nine children.
Lynn went to school in McCammon, Idaho. He married Sharon Lee Jenkins on February 17, 1951. He took out an apprenticeship at the Pacific Fruit Express, a division of the railroad in 1951. He later went to several short schools to learn how to repair machinery to work at Jenkins’ Tractor Service. He was drafted in to the Army in 1956. He and Sharon were stationed in Germany from 1957 to 1958. After his return from Germany he continued working at Jenkins’ Tractor Service. While building his life with Sharon he purchased a 360-acre farm located three miles north of McCammon. There, he and Sharon raised their two sons and one daughter. In 1963, the Crump family was sealed for eternity in the Logan Temple. Lynn worked as a diesel mechanic instructor and was head of the program at Idaho State University for fifteen years where he retired in 1994. He was a statistical process control instructor at FMC, Agrium and Basic American Foods. Lynn had a heart for educating whether it be his students or his family. He had many interests and hobbies but his free time was always well spent in a boat trolling the waters. His family will forever remember the lessons they learned and the wisdom he imparted in all aspects of their life.
