Lynn P. Marcy

Lynn Marcy, from Otsego, MI, and formerly of Dearborn, MI, died peacefully on March 5 th in Richland, MI.

He was born in Crystal, MI on October 1, 1930. Together with his sister, Ruth, Lynn was raised in Crystal, MI. Preceding him in death were his parents, Luke and Mabel, Ruth and her husband Wayne Sell, sister Helen, and brother Dean.

On June 20, 1953, Lynn was united in marriage to Sally A. Davarn, who also preceded him in death. Their union was blessed with three children. Daughter Amy Rogers (Stephen) of Leesburg, VA; Son Kevin Marcy (Susan) of Plainwell, MI; and daughter Julie Marcy of Dearborn. He is also survived by his son, Tim DeVoogd of Ithaca, NY. Lynn and Sally have six grandchildren: Mike (and Leslie) Rogers; Emily (and Erik) Smith; Christopher Rogers; Brian (and Lauren) Marcy; Kaitlyn (and Michael) Winclechter; and Grace (and Max) Hultquist. They have 7 great grandchildren: Amelia and Gillian Rogers; Zara and Frances Marcy; Jackson and Reid Winclechter; and Luca Lynn Hultquist.

In 1951, Lynn left college at UM to serve 4 years in the USAF until 1955, reaching the rank of Tech Sergeant at the time of his honorable discharge. He was assigned as a Special Agent to the Office of Special Investigations. It was during this time that Lynn was introduced to the Polygraph Science. Following discharge, and a BS in Police Administration at MSU, Lynn was trained as a polygraph examiner at The Keeler Polygraph Institute (Chicago), and subsequently hired there as a polygraph examiner in 1956.

This began his 60 year career in the field of Polygraph Science. Over the course of that career, he developed a polygraph school, The American Institute of Polygraph Technology, and conducted training courses in the United States, Mexico, Canada, Australia, and Singapore. He was a Charter Member (1964) of the Michigan Association of Polygraph Examiners, and served 4 terms in the office of President. He was a Charter Member (1966) of the American Polygraph Association, and served 2 terms in the office of President.

In the early 70’s Lynn worked with the Michigan State Legislature to introduce and enact a State Licensing Law for polygraph examiners. In 1972, he was appointed by Governor Milliken to serve as the first Director of the State Licensing Board of Forensic Polygraph Examiners. In gratitude for his efforts, his fellow Board members voted that he should receive Polygraph Examiner License number 00001. Throughout his career, Lynn was qualified as an Expert Witness on Polygraph Science and Technique in nine Federal Courts; and 18 State Courts. He stopped counting the number of polygraph examinations conducted when he reached 10,000 some 20 years before he finished his career.

Driven to always learn and improve, Lynn completed a Masters in Guidance and Counseling from EMU a few months before his 50th birthday. While Lynn often referred to passion for his polygraph career as a “jealous mistress”, he still managed to raise a family together with the one true love of his life, Sally.

Regular family vacations to the Traverse City area; hunting and fishing trips with children and grandchildren, and attending school functions or sporting events provided the joy of being a parent and grandparent. In 1990, Lynn and Sally bought a condo on East Grand Traverse Bay, and enjoyed time with each other there 2 or more times each year: For the Spring blossoming of the cherry trees; and the Fall color display of the Michigan hardwoods. They enjoyed their favorite restaurants, and drives around the Leelanau and Old Mission peninsulas, maybe stopping every now & then to pick morel mushrooms.

Ask Lynn what his favorite game was, and he would tell you cribbage. Whether with friends or family members, the competition was always serious. His favorite sports to watch were Major League Baseball, and NCAA Basketball. Luckily, each of these sport season’s ended right about the time that the other one started. Lynn’s 91 years were active, full and vibrant. In recent months, he often remarked how very good God had been to him, a life filled with so many rich blessings. He looked forwarded to being reunited with Sally, and chose these words for his headstone: Wed 1953 Together Forever His interment will be at Fort Custer National Cemetery.

Any donations can be made to Wings of Hope Hospice, Allegan, MI; or to St. Anselm Catholic School, Dearborn Heights, MI.

The family will receive visitors Tuesday March 15 from 2-4 PM and 6-8 PM at Winkel Funeral Home, Otsego, MI. At 7:15 PM visitors will be invited to share any words of remembrance. Mass of Christian Burial will be at St. Margaret Church, Otsego, MI on Wednesday March 16th, 11:00 AM.

Mr Marcy was one of the first polygraph instructor in Singapore and he had worked very closely with the law enforcement agencies in Singapore. The question format technique( Marcy Technique) which he had introduced is still widely used by many polygraph examiners in Singapore including myself. We are grateful to Mr Marcy for his many contributions in the polygraph fraternity & especially in Singapore. Mr Marcy was patient, peaceable and very well liked by all of us. He was a great teacher, person & friend.

He so enjoyed his family times and trips to his condo these last few years.

Some people in this life are bigger than life. Not because of fame or notoriety, though there has been some. And not because of iconic professional respect or achievements, though there be too many to count. Never having considered themselves to be so, they are bigger than life because their life exudes ethics, principle, integrity, morality and love. Bigger because of Christian values and fidelity to God, country, family and friends.

How much bigger than life they are can be measured by the size of the hole they leave in the hearts of those they have loved, befriended and mentored during a life well lived.

The place left vacant by their passing will not be filled by another. Yet we rejoice knowing that they now hear the only accolade that matters …. “Well done, good and faithful servant.” —-Thank you, Lynn

Thank you Paul that was beautiful! You know how much Dad loved you and how you held such a special place in his heart through all those years. Maybe on the 24th year you could call and celebrate with me the wonderful life Dad had. As he said so much this past year” God has truly blessed me!” He was blessed by wonderful friends like you. Thank you so much for coming to his visitation. It meant so much that you were there!

Hugs and God bless!

Dear Marcy family,

We are saddened to learn of Lynn’s passing. He has had a long and interesting life. Although we didn’t know him well we have truly loved living in the dearborn home. Once in a while there is still a wiff of pipe tobacco. Our prayers are with your family. Jim and Sharon Hamel

Thank you Sharon!

Remembering our basement family get togethers was mentioned several times during the remembrance of Dad with family and friends.. We all loved that home and it filled us with many wonderful memories as I hope will continue for your family!

Sincerely,

Julie

What a truly remarkable and loving man Mr Marcy was. Always with a word of advice and a smile on his face. I remember so many times him sitting around a fire with Kevin and his friends drinking a cocktail beaming with pride for his love for his family and friends. His legacy lives on … you only need to look into his grandchildren and great grandchildren faces to know that his spirit remains among us. Rest easy Mr Marcy and know you are loved. Our condolences to the entire Marcy family.

Dear Marcy Family,

I am sad to learn about the passing of Mr Marcy. Mr Marcy was my instructor during my basic polygraph course in 1997 in Singapore. He is a remarkable man and had inspired me to be a good polygrapher.

My deepest condolences to your family.

Thank you Colin!

We had several of his Singapore classes/ friends pictures at the visitation. Dad truly treasured his Singapore trips and always shared about each class and his students. Thank you for reaching out with your condolences. It does help even though we know Dad is at peace and can breathe with ease now, it still is hard not to talk or be with him as we are use to.

Sincerely,

Julie

Thank you Mary! We know Dad was truly dancing with Mom on St.Patrick’s Day. I am sure everyone was getting together and he can now breathe without a struggle. Such a blessing and he went peacefully. Lots of good memories of our get togethers.

Hugs!

Thanks Mary!

I have no doubt Dad was dancing with Mom on St.Patrick’s Day! He can now breathe with ease and I am sure there was a big get together when he arrived. He went peacefully to join his beloved Sal! Many wonderful memories of our times together!

Hugs!

Julie,

It was a true pleasure getting to know you and your father through the floral business. Making regular deliveries to him was a special treat. I am so sorry to learn of his passing. Sending prayers to you and your family.

Oh Darcy I tried to find you. I was sad to hear you were no longer bringing others happiness. I so appreciate all the beautiful flowers you took to my Dad and our neighbor Elaine. You do a fabulous job and I know Dad already had a smile when you brought his flowers.

Thank you so much for bringing so much joy into his life!

God bless!

Julie
