Rick Allen Linson was the definition of untamed. He was like nitroglycerin trapped in a coke bottle, that being said as the highest of compliments. Sadly, on Monday, Oct. 18, 2010, a force of nature was silenced. Rick was lost in a tragic car accident just minutes from his home in Prospect. He will be greatly missed by many.
Rick was an avid outdoorsman, loved to fish and hunt anywhere he could. He also loved to snowboard Mt. Bachelor and Mt. Ashland and was jut learning to enjoy deep-water diving. He lived life more than others and , in turn, so did those around him.
Rick is survived by his parents, John and Theresa Linson; siblings, Tyler, Christy and Riley; and his own loving family, Candice Spearen and their eight-month-old son, Aron Linson. He also leaves behind a legacy of family that stretches far beyond the bounds of blood. Many considered Rick a brother.
Everyone who knew him has a story about Rick. A celebration of life was held at the River’s Edge/Holy Waters, Thursday, Oct. 28.
Those interested in assisting Rick’s young family may make donations at PremierWest Bank under the names of Theresa and Aron Linson or Candice Spearen.
