The world lost part of its radiance Friday morning, January 13, 2017, when Roy S. "RJ" Linder III was torn from his loving family. RJ's smile brightened every corner when he entered a room. He was a devoted son, daddy, brother and friend. He loved his family fiercely and more than anything. His boys were his everything. His passions were anything that had to do with the outdoors, especially if it had four wheels. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him. He will eternally be in our hearts and thoughts.
