I was never close to Linzie in high school and mostly remember him as an actor in school plays.  I seem to recall that I heard he moved to NYC to try his hand at professional acting.  At some point he returned home to care for his mother.  His mother and my mother played bridge togather with several other contemporary ladies.  Linzie would often fill in when one of the regulars couldn't make it.  Over time, Linzie became friends with my mom and he would sometimes call her and the other elderly ladies to chat.  I happened to be home visiting mother one time when he called and we had one of those brief conversations filling in the years since high school.  I remember that he told me that Turk Evans had passed.  When my mother died in 2009, Linzie spoke with me at her visitation and told me how highly he regarded her and how lucky I had been to have her for my mother.  He was clearly a very caring person, not just for his own mother, but for my mom and some of the other ladies, who appreciated the social interaction and entertainment he provided.  May he rest in peace.

Linzie lived in my neighborhood and we rode the bus to school together. After graduation we lost contact, the day of my Father's  funeral, in 1999 he called me to say how sorry he was of his passing and we chatted briefly.  My last contact. He was a caring person and funny during our high school days.

Linzie and I were close friends in high school.  He was a lot of fun.  He went with my mother, another friend and me to Memphis for something one time and we had a great time.  We used to go out but unbeknownst to my parents he took me to see my boyfriend who I was forbidden to see.  I married that bofriend in July 1964 and Linzie was there at my VERY small wedding. We have 2 children and 4 grandchildren.

I lost track of Linzie fter High Schoold but connected back with him many years ago he would send me Christmas Cards and I did speak to him.  He was a Hoot and He will be miss by those that knew him.  RIP

It's interesting that I have felt a connection to Linzie ever since I learned that we shared a birthday.  I didn't actually know him personally, though.
