He furthered his education by attending Austin Peay College in Clarksville, TN and Gadsden State Community College. He attended First Congregational Full Gospel Church of Anniston and Harvest Church of God for many years. Linc loved antique cars, animals, motorcycles, collecting hot wheel cars and baseball cards. He had a love for music like no one else, with his favorites ranging from all the classic rock, the 50's-80's music decades and all the "old timey" tunes. From his daughter Cassie- "He was a loving father, faithful friend, and an honest man. He kept his word and did anything he could to help people. He worked hard and always made sure to play harder. He was full of love and lived life to the fullest. His kind eyes will never be forgotten by his friends and family; and he will always be remembered as a great man by all those who loved him so dearly. From his daughter Caitie-"Linc seemed to make the best of every moment. I was beyond blessed to have him as my dad. There is so many things I could say and words I could write, but none of them would do any justice to how amazing, loving, and caring he was. He was the best dad in the entire world. Always there to hold my hand, and even if he wasn't holding my hand, I knew he always had my back no matter what. He was such a loving dad. He loved his girls more than life itself and was the most caring and loving dad we could've had! My dad was my best friend, my whole world, my go-to for everything and now he will be my guardian angel until we meet again."
