Terrible news this morning. From WXYZ:
Former Red Wings public address announcer Budd Lynch has died at the age of 95.
Sources say Lynch passed away at the Oakwood Skilled Nursing Home on Rotunda in Dearborn at 5 a.m. A representative from the R J Nixon Funeral Home in Wyandotte says arrangements are pending.
As someone put it on Reddit, his voice was one that could never retire.
Rest in peace Budd, you'll always be the voice of Detroit to all Wings fans.
