Lynn Sheeley Jr.'s father opened a small piano store in east Tennessee in 1908. After serving in D-Day during World War II, Lynn returned home to work in the store, which he later took over. Along the way, the business grew to four locations, two of which are in Knoxville and that Lynn managed for many years. In 1968, Lynn was elected to the NAMM Board and served on the insurance committee working closely with William Gard. The store closed in 1985 and Lynn retired to Florida, where his NAMM Oral History interview was captured in 2017.
