Linus lived a life of service, and was always willing to serve others and his church, St. Mary, Star of the Sea Catholic Church. Linus owned and operated an adult foster home in Astoria, Oregon, for 15-plus years. He was very proud of his adult foster home and the service he provided to the residents and their families.
Linus will be remembered for his service to others, his love of the Catholic Church and his Bible, his love of some good fried chicken, being an all-star noodle ball partner at Life Care Center of McMinnville, and his constant flirting with the ladies.
