In Remembrance
James Howard Linkey
Hayes Funeral Home

Mr. James Howard Linkey passed away Thursday, January 25, 2007, at Clear Lake Hospital in Webster after a yearlong battle with cancer.  Born January 24, 1935 in Arcadia, TX where he spent most of his adult life, Mr. Linkey was of the Protestant faith, had attended Santa Fe High School, was a member of the Painters Local #585 where he retired after 35 years of service, served in the US Army and received his GED while in the service. Howard was sort of a rebel in his younger years but in a fun kind of way and to most everyone who knew him knew he was an easygoing guy who enjoyed life, fishing and hunting, building things, Bar-B-Quing with friends and was a good story teller, brother and friend.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Joe and Lucille (Baty) Linkey; sister, Bobbie June Linkey and is survived by sons, Johnny Linkey, Gary Linkey and wife, Tammy, and Ricky Linkey; 7 grandchildren; 3 great-grandchildren; brother, Richard Linkey and wife, Barbara; ex-wife of 37 years, Janet Corey Linkey; ex-brother and sister-in-law, Donald and Doris Corey; lifelong best friend, Dale Hicks.
