Peter died suddenly June 5, 2020. He was the son of Roseclaire and Richard Lynn of Sands Point and East Hampton, N.Y.
Peter prepared for Princeton at Saint Ann’s School in Brooklyn Heights. At Princeton he studied electrical engineering (in between battles of wit with the great Ashley Montagu) before transferring to Brown University to complete a degree in computer science. He remained a loyal Princetonian and enjoyed his time as an alum at football games, Reunions, and participating in the P-rades.
His entire career was in the New York financial-services sector, focused on computer programming and engineering. He helped pioneer the crossing-network platform for large-volume stock trading.
He married Linda Berry of Manhasset, N.Y., where they settled to raise their daughter Alexandra “Sandy” Lynn, his pride and joy. They summered in East Hampton when not traveling overseas.
He was a past member of the Princeton Club of NY and Manhasset Bay Yacht Club. His passions were his family, friends, reading, biking, skiing, sailing, and attending his daughter’s regattas. He will be remembered for his quick wit, intelligence, and kindness.
Peter is survived by his beloved wife, Linda; daughter Sandy; father Richard; a brother and sister-in-law; and two nieces.
