I spent many an hour co-ordinating work and ship checking with Lynnwood while at Newport News Shipbuilding. He was a great guy to work with who always tried to do his best. Sorry to learn of his passing.

Linwood will be missed in the TBTO. His love of trains was shared many times with conversation and laughter.

With fond memories of spending a summer with Uncle Linwood and family when we were children. As we travel our journey in life we all either grow together or grow apart. However we are all family and I for one believe that is the most important thing in life. It is with great sorrow that we have to say goodby to Uncle Linwood and heart felt condolences to the family. May God ease the sadness and bless the lives who were touched by the life journeys of Uncle Linwood.
