Lynnwood (Lynn) Maurice Laird October 28, 1935 to July 20, 2016 Born in San Jose, California to Lynna Margaret Mitchell Laird and Maurice Spencer Laird. Lynn spent the first years of his life by the ocean in Marina where his family had a ranch until moving to Camino in 1951, where he still resided. Lynn is survived by his loving and caring wife of 50-years, Dorene Laird, his son Timothy Laird, his daughters Tamra Ezzell (Marc), and Karen Cross (Kelly). He had six grandchildren and two great grandchildren who he adored. After moving to Camino, Lynn attended the El Dorado Adventist School in Placerville. He worked a summer in the orchards for Irwin Johnson changing water lines and driving tractor. He was then offered a job at the Placerville Lumber Company and left school to work full-time. He worked there off and on for over 12 years. Lynn loved driving big rig he supported his family driving logging trucks, belly dumps, transfers, and even did some long hauling for over 35 years. He was a very hardworking man. Lynn liked fast cars, motorcycles (especially Indians) and was an avid bicyclist. He was a true hobbyist who enjoyed photography, hiking, golf, remote control cars and airplanes, CB radios, and collected guns and even made his own bullets. He also was into body building and had a home gym where he manufactured most of his own equipment. He also felt that his hobbies should be a family affair and whatever he was currently sporting the whole family was participating. Lynn had an eclectic and unique style about him from what he wore to what he said. He could have deep conversations with anyone from any walks of life and education level. He also had the debate skills of award winning status, he really loved to "get your goat" with taking on the opposite opinion of those around him, he wanted you to know why you had your own opinion. Music was a huge part of Lynn's life. He was a writer, singer, and played guitar, harmonica, saxophone, drums, and some piano. He was a mechanic for the Heritage Singers and he was also in a Christian band Gospel Express. Lynn was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2004 and struggled with the loss of his active lifestyle. After a fall on July 14 causing three broken ribs and internal bleeding, pneumonia set in and ultimately ended his struggle.
