Lin had a great sense of humor, loved fishing, hunting and the outdoors, doing the really hard crossword puzzles and spending time with his family, especially the grandkids. We love you Lin/DaddyLin/Papaw/Uncle Sonny!
He told us to be sure and put this joke that he torn out of the Houston Chronicle years ago:
"An avid crossword puzzler died today. He'll be buried 6 Down and 3 Across."
