William Linwood known as and lovingly called “Tink” was a man of honor, integrity, and generosity. He loved and served the Lord and was a faithful member of Cora’s Grove Pentecostal Freewill Baptist Church. By profession Tink was a long distance truck driver and for many years he traveled roads throughout the United States. Tink was a “family man” as his life was centered around his family. He was also quite a good cook, specializing in his famous, delicious collards. Tink’s presence in our home and around our dinner table will be greatly missed.
