Thank you to the Lynch family for their generous donation to the Welland Canal Fallen Workers Memorial. Karen and Carol are relatives of a father and son, Elzear and Leo Lynch who died on the same day in 1925 while working on the Welland Canal.

The Lynch family’s tragic loss is a story that resonates with many families from across Niagara whose loved ones were lost during construction of the Welland Canal. This memorial will honour the fathers, sons, brothers and families of the 137 men who helped build our community by building the canal between 1914 and 1932. Thank you to the Lynch family, and to all of the donors and supporters of the memorial.
