Linn, Richard (Dick) Lee (Age 82)
Passed away December 27, 2016. Richard was born in Coos Bay, Oregon October 16, 1934, to Elmer and Loretta Linn. Dick graduated from Ridgefield High School in Vancouver, Washington, where he met and married his wife Patricia (Patty). Patty and Dick moved to Spokane in 1957 where he operated a franchise of Overhead Door Company until 1966. Dick and Patty raised five children and then worked together to establish Linn's Door Service, which was later taken over by their oldest son, David. Dick loved his dogs, football and hunting. He was deeply loved by his family, his pets and more recently, many wonderful caregivers and the loving staff at North Central Care Center. He is preceded in death by his sons David Linn and Daniel Linn, his wife Patricia, his parents, Elmer and Loretta Linn, and his sister Delores Beagle. He is survived by his son Douglas (Nesha) Linn, daughters Susan (Dick) Smitha and Jennifer (Ronald) Grogan, several grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In keeping with Dick's wishes, a private family memorial will be held in springtime at his beloved hunting mountain. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in his honor may be sent to SCRAPS Hope Foundation, 6815 East Trent, Spokane Valley, WA 99212 or The Salvation Army, 222 East Indiana, Spokane, WA 99207, charities close to his heart.
