Obituary of Robert Alan Linehan

Robert was a friendly man with a fantastic sense of humor. He was a big joker and liked to affectionately pick on his beloved wife, Audrey. They met at Skateland and took a liking to one another immediately. In fact, they’ve been married for 61 years! Robert was hardworking and just a tad stubborn, but he was one of the friendliest people you might ever meet. He could make friends anywhere he went. People enjoyed talking to him about their lives because he was such a good listener.

Robert was dedicated to his favorite hobbies. His love of trains was unparalleled. Robert made and painted intricate pieces for his own model train set up. He was a talented builder thanks to his career in electronics at Bell Aerospace and PCB Piezotronics. Robert grew and tended vegetables in his garden every year for over 40 years. He used to be passionate about taking photos. His favorite subjects were people and flowers. Robert wasn’t in many family photos because he enjoyed being the one behind the camera.
