Born in 1940 in Sampson County, Lynwood was the son of the late Robbie H. and Annie Lee Page Spell.  He was a 1959 graduate of Roseboro-Salemburg High School.  He briefly served in the US Army and Army Reserve.  Upon the death of his father, he returned to Roseboro and managed the family farm until his recent retirement.  He worked long hours and fulfilled his passion for being outdoors by raising livestock, and growing tobacco, corn, soybeans and produce.  He passed the love of farming to his son, John Larkin.  He was a tremendous sports fan and enjoyed talking to friends and family about his favorite teams. He loved spending time with his children and grandchildren.  He was a member of Elizabeth Baptist Church.
