Lowrey Lynn Ready

Born Lowrey Lynn Ready to Robert and Myrtle Ready, in Dallas, Texas, he began dancing and singing lessons at an early age, and soon was winning amateur contests in the Dallas and Ft. Worth areas. Lynn, who was always billed by his middle name, sang on local radio and television shows from age three on, and later learned to play piano and the steel guitar. Lynn’s first professional engagement was in February 1957, on a local Dallas television program, The Curt Massey Show. Shortly afterwards, Lynn took part in a regional audition for replacement Mouseketeers, and became the only Mouseketeer ever hired whose family wasn’t already living in California.

Lynn’s family, including his older brother Jack, moved to Canoga Park, Califo rnia in 1957, after Lynn won a spot on the show. He was with the Mouseketeers for six months and then went on to do feature spots on the Ozzie and Harriett Show, The Spin and Marty Show as well as a dancing spot in the movie Bye Bye Birdie.  He continued in show business for several years as an actor, singer, songwriter and musician.  

Lynn is survived by his only child and son, Richard Ready, and Granddaughter Meredith Ready as well as Nieces, Marilyn Kinman, Carolyn Simpson, Donna Martin, Nancy Maurice, Linda Martin and Nephews David Jackson and Aaron Jackson and several Great Nieces and Nephews.  He passed away on Monday, February 26, 2018 from Cancer.  He will be remembered as a person who could make you smile and laugh with his entertaining personality and stories.  He will be sorely missed by his family who loved him very much.  He will be interred at Oakwood Memorial Park in Chatsworth with his Mother and Father.
