    He and your mom were two of the most genuine and kind people around. We loved them dearly and they will forever be in our memories. So glad we got to see him in, November. Lee (Sterling), my brother, came from California to be able to see him what we knew would be our last time. He will surely be missed.

    I have the best memories from my childhood coming to see my dad's side of the family in Virginia. Pam, Shelly, and I would spend the night together whenever my family came to visit. Lynn and Sandy both were so hospitable. I remember Lynn being a strong, hard working, family man, always gentle and kind. The girls and I played in the house and on the farm. We had the greatest family cookouts every Labor Day. Everyone would come and bring food—tons of it! I remember all the laughter and love. That is quite a legacy to leave behind. I miss those family gatherings. Sending some of that love back to all of you as we all mourn the loss of a brother, father, grandfather, cousin, great uncle, and friend. ❤️

    I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to get to know Scott's Uncle Lynn a few times while visiting Granny. I truly was in awe witnessing, first hand, the tremendous workload of a southern farm the first time I visited the countryside in southern Virginia. Very admirable of him to continue the history of the Vaughan family. Thinking of you all. 💜

    My heart goes out to all of you. Hearing the way you talk about your dad, I know he was an amazing man. Your memories and stories will keep him close to you.

    Lynn Jerome Vaughan passed away peacefully at his home on historic Oak Ridge Plantation, Green Bay, VA on December 7, 2021, just days before his 80th birthday.  His battle with Parkinson’s Disease showed his courage in facing life’s challenges with grace and humility. 

    Lynn was born to the late John Wycliffe Vaughan and Alise Noland Vaughan on December 11, 1941 and was the oldest of 8 children--the late John Wyckliffe Vaughan II, Victor Kellam Vaughan, Donald Glenn Vaughan, Judy Kay Vaughan Perkins, Sherry May Vaughan Howerton, Randal Scott Vaughan, and Jessie Sue Vaughan Tipton.

    Lynn was preceded in death by his wife of 50 years, Sandra Smithson Vaughan.  They raised three children--Joseph Harvey McGee IV of Green Bay, VA, Pamela Vaughan Little of Denver, NC, and Shelly Vaughan Morrow of Southport, NC.  He was blessed with four grandchildren--Ronald Eugene Wooddell, Olivia Hampton Morrow, Lynnlee Marie Little and Ella Vaughan Morrow. 

    After serving in the Army Reserves, he worked for Dupont in Richmond, VA.  In 1974, he came back home to take over the family farm.  As a seasoned farmer, his favorite places were on the tractor, at the barns, or driving around in his Ford F-150.  After 30 years of tobacco farming, he turned his talents to raising cattle.  He loved working with “his cows” and took great pride in his herd.  He served on several local boards, was active at Victoria United Methodist Church, could often be seen at Bradshaws’ or Hillside’s “men’s breakfast tables”, and was known for always lending a helping hand. 

    The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to all the caregivers who helped Lynn through his last years.  A special thanks to Janet Cliborne for the exceptional care and love that she showed for more than 10 years. 

    Lynn will be honored with a service at Victoria United Methodist Church at 2 PM on Sunday, December 12, 2021, followed by a private burial in the Knight & Vaughan Family cemetery at Oak Ridge Plantation.  Lynn’s late wife, Sandra’s, ashes will be placed with him before burial.  In lieu of flowers, please make donations to The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Staples Funeral Home, Victoria in charge of the arrangements.
