Condolences

  • My amazing grandfather, you are greatly missed! I am so glad I was able to see you almost every single day, in the last ten years especially. Your passing at home holding grandmothers hand was the best outcome rather than in the hospital or any other circumstance. I am especially thankful I was there to talk to you before your nap and also to hold your hand and kiss you goodbye before you were taken away. I will miss your amazing stories in the coming years! Love you forever! ♥️

  • Love you Dad, miss you, Rest in peace!!!

  • Happy 92nd Dad!!! Have all the heavenly cake you want!!! No more sugar worries!!!

  • Grandpa Linscott was a really great guy. He was solid and supportive, loving and always seemed excited to see me. We had so many good times together on all of the camping trips, hunting trips, working out in the yard and playing games when I was a kid; and most recently our many bowling trips over the last 10 years or so. He has loved and accepted all of my kids, biological, foster, adopted, and all of my Girl Scouts at times. He taught us a lot about hard work, commitment, responsibility and just being good and decent. I loved hearing his stories about World War II, his time in the Navy, about his family in Kansas and of his many journeys. I will miss his big contagious smile and his deep chuckling laugh. And like Jana said, he passed exactly the way he said he would want to, in his own bed with Grandma by his side. They shared 70 years of marriage and he passed just 7 days shy of his 92nd birthday. He did so much in his time and he will never be forgotten! Love you Grandpa! I’ll see you when I get there! 💗

  • I respected him for his service and his love of family and the outdoors. May he rest in peace.

  • My deepest condolences to the family. May you continue to be a source of comfort to one another.(Proverbs 17:17)

    Sorry for your loss. May he Rest In Peace.
