Francis J. Lynch (August 9, 1920 – May 31, 1993) was a Democratic member of the Pennsylvania State Senate.

He was first elected to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 1966.[5] He was first elected to represent the 2nd senatorial district in the Pennsylvania Senate in a 1973 special election.[1][2] Shortly before he died, he left his hospital bed to cast a tie breaking vote on the budget. His death left the Pennsylvania Senate locked in a 24–24 tie.[6]
