Mr. Lynch wasn’t just a great PA announcer, with his big, booming voice and old-school vibe. He was a genuine war hero, fighting for our freedom on the shores of Normandy on D-Day – June 6, 1944.

@detnews Budd Lynch was one of my heroes in the game of hockey. His kind demeanor will be missed as much as his distinctive voice. RIP Budd.

Sad to hear of the death of longtime Wings' PA announcer Budd Lynch, a war hero and true hockey icon, at age 95.
