2 LYNWOOD BUTNER NOTABLE RETIREMENTS This past fall at a celebratory event, Lynwood remarked ‘this is my fifth and final retirement!” He thanked Steve Baril and Dylan Bishop as well as KVCF for hosting and giving him a chance to thank many of those who made his 50 plus years so amazing. “After a virtual year, it gave me a chance to thank everyone for their friendship and support.” This was his 45th year of working with the General Assembly, which was the greatest honor of his life. He recognized his biggest supporter Beth, and sons Jonathan and Clay for their support and patience during a very busy career! “Thanks to all! Loved every day and now off to new adventures!” Five retirements,Who can beat that?We called Lynwood, and here’s the list: 1 – VDOT: 30 years state traffic engineer 2 – DMV: Assistant and then Deputy Commissioner 3 – Peter Easter Associates 4 – Butner Consulting 5 – KDCF What a journey. His work with the General Assembly goes back to 1977 when he was called up to explain the Federal Bridge Formula (think ‘truck’ weight) to Senator Wiley and later to Delegate Dickerson. This began a lifetime friendship with Earl Dickenson. Marty Hall said, “Lynwood was always very helpful with transportation issues in SWVA and was just a wonderful person and friend.” Steve Baril commented, “Linwood is old school. The tools of his trade are a handshake and a hug. His word is his bond. He never met a person he didn’t like, and I’m unaware of anyone who did not like Lynwood. As they say, they don’t make ‘em like that anymore! We wish Lynwood the best with his well deserved retirement, but he will be sorely missed at KVCF Solutions.”
