Ross Linzy Sr. United States Army Veteran

Ross Linzy Sr. United States Army Veteran

Ross Linzy Sr. was born December 13, 1916 in Temple, Texas and passed away on August 13, 2010, at the age of 93, in a Temple hospital.

Ross was born to Elija Linzy and Julian Olman in Temple, the city in which he passed away.  He attended the public schools in Taylor, Texas.

Ross proudly served his country in the United States Army during World War II.  At the time of his passing he  was a member of Grant Chapel in Troy, Texas.

Services were held on August 27 at Branford/Dawson Funeral Home in Temple with the Reverend Matthew Wilson officiating.

Interment services followed at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery at Killeen, Texas, with military honors.

Present were Patriot Guard Riders of the Centex Region.  A line of American flags was formed around the committal shelter as the Army Honor Guard rendered  military honors.  The American flag was folded into the traditional triangle and presented to the family on behalf of the United States Army and a grateful nation.

The Army bugler played taps, followed by interment in a niche of the columbarium.

On the hill above, the American flag flew at half-staff in honor of this member of “the greatest generation”.

Left to cherish his memory are his daughters Linda and Bertha, his son Henry and many grandchildren.
