Rhea, 78, of Paradise Valley, AZ, a pioneering McDonald’s franchisee, whose roots trace back to the Company’s earliest days, died surrounded by family, on December 14, 2010 at Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee, WI. He was born January 16, 1932 in Aurora, IL, the son of Everett and Florence (Nester) Rhea. He graduated from East Aurora High School and attended Drake University, Des Moines, IA.

In 1961, Mr. Rhea opened his first McDonald’s restaurant in the Cleveland, OH area. He subsequently built two more stores and acquired a fourth before expanding to Philadelphia. In 1974, Mr. Rhea was designated as McDonald’s joint venture partner in England, helping to expand the McDonald’s brand worldwide.

For the next 12 years, Mr. Rhea’s joint venture opened more than 250 McDonald’s locations in the United Kingdom. He retired in 1986.

He will be remembered as a multifaceted man with great vision and the ability to execute his plans. He was a strong, egalitarian leader who, along with his fellow owner-operators, helped build sustaining operational co-ops in both Cleveland and Philadelphia.

Audrey Walford Lynch, a former longtime resident of Hawaii, passed away July 20, 2010, her sixty ninth wedding anniversary. When the children had left the nest she continued her education to obtain her master’s degree from the University of Hawaii’s Graduate School of Social Work.

After graduation, Audrey’s main pursuits were in Psychiatric Social Work at the Hawaii State Hospital in Kaneohe.

In this regard she worked closely with patients and their families, with church organizations and various social agencies to insure a continuity of care for the mentally impaired.

Audrey devoted her life to her family and in caring for others. As a Navy wife, she was able to pursue her interests in Washington, D.C., Panama, Hawaii, California, Paris, London, and a variety of other places. She especially cherished Laie Bay, where her ashes were scattered in a recent memorial service attended by her beloved family, gathered at their former beach home from California, Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, New Jersey, and Virginia.

The service was conducted by the Rev. Sam Cox of Kailua. As the outrigger canoe, bearing ashes and flowers, was launched through the surf, two sea turtles appeared to guide Audrey to her rest.
