Lynwood was born Feb. 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, who 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 Harleys shared between him and his son, Sam, held a special place in his heart.
