Mr. Eddy L. Usery of Edgar Springs, Missouri passed away Tuesday March 22, 2022 leaving his loving family and friends to forever cherish his memory.



  • Dear family – I am sorry to hear this sad news. I worked with Lynn for many years at USGS. We didn’t always agree or see eye to eye but we shared many a laugh. Take care and may God be with you and help you to find comfort this day and the days ahead.

  • I am so sorry for the loss of your family.
    Lynn was a great mentor to many in the geospatial community. I was fortunate to be one of them. He was always ready to help and support. Rest in peace.

  • During my 17 years at the USGS and then beyond in Esri Lyn has been a wonderful colleague and planted many positive seeds on the planet. I miss him already.

  • Lynn was a wonderful supporter and colleague during my career in cartography and GIS. He personally supported and motivated more basic research in GIS and mapping in his role at USGS than anyone else in the profession. I will miss him greatly.

  • Lynn was a researcher, colleague and a friend which inspired me as cartographer, scientist and simply as human being. I enjoyed working with him in the context of the International Cartographic Association and while he was visiting us at Vienna, Austria several times. He will be missed.

  • Lynn was my friend since I was a masters student! I arranged for him to come to Indiana University to give a talk – I used the AAG Visiting Geographical Scientist funds. He was at U WI – Madison at the time. I was a 30 year old piss ant, and he was a GIS god on a pedestal! But he treated me like an equal. I really miss him. He was a friend, mentor, colleague, and co-worker. And he was wonderful in all of those roles!

  • I had the honor of working with Lynn my entire USGS career. We did some research together early in my career, but I went the management path and Lynn stayed the course with research. We worked well together, and he was glad I took care of the management stuff, and did not mind at all when I dabbled in research. I will certainly miss Lynn a lot! My condolences to his family and friends, and all that he impacted.
