I am heartbroken and grief-stricken to discover my dear friend David "Zyme" Linzy, one of the most fun-loving, cheerfull and thoughtful persons I've ever met is gone.
Tonight, on 9FEB13@0427 while searching for Dave on facebook I've made a mournful, heartsick and painful discovery that this unique creature has been taken.
I had the honor of serving with David in the United States Coast Guard at Station Port O'Conner from 8DEC80 through 6OCT82 where he was beloved by ALL that met this wonderful human being.
I have many fond memories of his playful teasing and good-spirited ribbing and am most despondent over the fact that among the many captivating and charming gifts granted this agreeable, engaging, and fascinating man with a magnetic personality was not the gift of years.
The world has lost a true gentleman and is a little darker without his excessive briliance and illumination. Though your song is over, your melody will linger on in the many lives you've graced.
Good-bye for now my phenomenal friend and may you rest in peace.
Oh David what you have meant to me and what you meant to Jeff. You two are together again and can relive your childhoods and Coast Guard times. I will do my level best to keep the bonsai plant you sent me for Mother's Day alive and doing well. This was and is such a shock and leaves me wondering WHY? Sending love to your brother and sister, son and best love. Be at peace dear one and know you will be sorely missed by those who love you. Mary Lambert Beck
We are thinking of you all and remembering seeing David and visiting with him at Carolyn's service. Such a nice man he had become was our thought.
Our sympathy and love to you all.

To the Linzy family and friends,
It is all so surreal when we lose someone so young and vibrant. I last saw Dave and Jenny in Houston during the SAMS International meeting. If I had known it was my last tryst, I would have hugged him harder. Dave was Dave. When Dave ran the office for TMS in Houston, he was shooting star. He was fully capable and handled all day to day operations as if he owned the businsess. When he started Gulf Coast Marine Consultants, it was no surprise that he would be a success. I wish that I had known Dave better. As it was I saw him only from time to time in the recent past. I always enjoyed his upbeat company. I waited all this time to submit my entry in the guest book because I am still in disbelief. I guess Billy Joel was right, "only the good die young". My thoughts are with his son and his family. Dave was simply the BEST.
To all of Dave's family and friends... May the peace of knowing he is with the Lord fill your heart. Dave was a great guy and will be missed but will always have a spot in our hearts.
