Linwood was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was one of the hardest working men we knew. He loved deer hunting and creating a beautiful garden full of beautiful flowers. Everyone who knew him loved him. He was a blessing to so many and will be greatly and dearly missed. He passed away in his home surrounded by his family after a brief but difficult battle with brain cancer. We will see him again in Heaven.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to Amedisys Hospice, Cornerstone Funeral Home and especially Pam Sutton.
