Lynwood was born February 18, 1950 in Lenoir County the son of the late William Clyde Rouse and Erma Lambert Rouse.
Lynwood was a loving son, brother, father, husband and friend. There was nothing he could not do and was a true perfectionist. He spent many years working as an auto body technician where he perfected his trade. While owning his own repair shop, he was able teach his talents to many, but was very proud of the two special men, Clarence "Junior" Chadwick and his nephew Herman Lynn Davis, that continue to carry on his legacy. Lynwood enjoyed spending time with his loving wife, children, grandchildren and friends. He loved taking trips to the mountains with his wife, enjoyed a good meal with anyone, endless hours of shopping and daily calls with his best friend, James Tanner. Even at an early age, he enjoyed riding motorcycles and over the years became captivated with a Harley Davidson. The passion for Harley's shared between him and his son, Sam, held a special place in his heart. He was one of the most giving and selfless individuals you would ever meet. Natured like his Mama, he always had a listening ear and gave the best hugs that could fix anything. Throughout his wonderful life, he has touched, inspired, loved and been loved by so many. Stories shared by friends and family, are a true testament to his character as the man we all loved and adored. He will truly be missed, however, memories we all shared with him will live in our hearts forever. The family would like to give a special thanks to Brandy Nobles for her exceptional care and professionalism along with the staff of Community Hospice.

    We met Lynwood and Debbie at Golden Corral which started our friendship from Harley rides, their wedding and meals together. Those will be the memories we cherish. We can see him riding his Harley in heaven now, free of pain and able to breath fresh air again. Our thoughts and prayers are with y'all during this very difficult time and in the days to come. Ride free our friend.....until we meet again! Love, Curtiss & Rose
