He was born on March 2, 1958, in Huntingdon, a son of the late Glenn L. and Emma M. Miller Linn and married Carol A. Wik on June 2, 1979, at the Orrstown United Brethren Church.

Bob worked for Volvo Construction Equipment for thirty-two years, retiring as a supervisor in 2008. He was a social member of the Durff-Kuhn V.F.W. Post #6168, Shippensburg and a former member of the Newburg-Hopewell V.F.C. No. 51. Bob coached softball in his younger years and liked to golf.

Private Condolence


Posted at 02:18pm
Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. When someone you love dies, you often find some measure of comfort in the memories you have. Something else that can bring comfort is the knowledge that you are not alone in your remembrance of them. John 5:28, 29: “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out...” The term “memorial tombs” as used in this verse carries the implication of preserving the memory of the one who has died. In this context it suggests that the person who died is remembered by God. So overtime you may feel that you are the only one who remembers your loved one, but God has not forgotten them. His memory is not ravaged by time, and he will use his memory to restore life to those who have fallen asleep in death. May this knowledge bring you comfort during this difficult time.

Bob was our daughter Shantina's father-in-law. We have fond memories of him at our family's get together at Cowan's Gap. We know how much he loved his wife Carol, daughter Amy, and son Shaun, along with his son-in-law, daughter-in-law, and grandchildren plus numerous other family and friends. He always was outgoing and kind to us. We also know how much he supported Shaun's car racing. He will be missed. Just blessed to know he is now with Jesus and one day we will see each other again in heaven. Until we meet again my friend. Dave & Christy Powers
