Lyndon “Lyn” Hugh Bolick, of Burgaw and Newport News, Virginia, died Sept. 19, 2015, in Hampton, Virginia. He was 63.

He was born Jan. 4, 1952, in Pender County, son of the late Robert Hugh Bolick and Bertha Croom Bolick.

Lyn is survived by his loving family, his wife of 40 years, Karen R. Bolick; son, Robert Lynn Bolick (Shannon); daughters, Jennifer B. McCarthy and Amy Bolick; son-in-law, Bobby McCarthy; grandchildren, Blake and Kiley McCarthy, Elijah, Aaron and Taylor Bolick and Kayla and Shane Brock; sister, Connie B. Duda; brother, Bobby Bolick; several nieces, nephews, and many extended family and friends.

Lyn was a member of Forest Hills Baptist Church. His career as a commercial fishing captain spanned many years in the Chesapeake Bay area. First and foremost Lyn loved his family and was a wonderful husband and the best daddy, granddaddy and brother anyone could ask for.

Not only his career, but his second love in life was the sea and his F/V “Miss Planters” and harvesting scallops. Lyn was a kind and gentle man with a big, sharing heart. His giving and sharing was always done in a quiet way. Lyn will be forever missed by Connie and Bobby as well as all of his family.

The family will receive friends 6 to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2015, at Quinn-McGowen Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2015, at the funeral home, with the Rev. Timothy Cook officiating. Burial will follow at Riverview Memorial Park.
