Lynn Hyrum Tawzer, 76, passed away unexpectedly on January 19, 2022, in Mesa, Arizona. He had valiantly fought and won his battle with pancreatic cancer in 2021 but succumbed to lingering effects from cancer treatment. Lynn was born and raised in Ammon, Idaho. He earned a football scholarship to Brigham Young University and later graduated with a Bachelor and Master’s degree in business. Lynn met his sweetheart, Dixie Cummings, at an orientation dance the first week of college and they have been happily married for 56 wonderful years. After living in Provo, Utah for 12 years, they moved to Mesa, Arizona in 1977 where Lynn started Irvine Electric, an electrical contracting business, with his father-in-law. Lynn was always a hard worker and ran the business successfully until retiring in 2020. Lynn built precious memories with family while enjoying his hobbies of hunting, camping, and golf. Lynn and Dixie were blessed with four beautiful children and Lynn was never happier than the times he spent with his family. Lynn was a devoted husband, a dedicated father, and a loving and involved grandpa. All his children remained in Mesa to be close to their parents.
Lynn was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and was serving as a service missionary at the time of his passing. He loved to serve and happily did so in every calling that was extended to him. His love for the Savior, Jesus Christ, was reflected in all he did and said. This great and gentle man will be missed by all who had the fortune to know him.
