Jeffery Linn

Jeffrey “Gunny” Linn was born on 12/4/1943 and passed away on 5/27/2023
Jeffery was a decorated Marine Corps Veteran. In addition to his love and devotion to his country, he was an avid sportsman who enjoyed hunting, fly fishing, archeology, and any time spent outdoors. In the earlier part of his life, he developed a love for diving and exploring the ocean. He discovered several unknown species in New Zealand and his underwater photography is still archived in museums there. A talented woodworking artist, he created beautiful pieces that his family will treasure for generations to come. He had a successful career with Bechtel that allowed him to travel the world and build a network of friends who were dear to him. Gunny was selective about the people he spent time with, and if you were his friend he made that clear to you. He was a master storyteller who enjoyed a good laugh, a good conversation, and a good cigar. Simply put, he was a one-of-a-kind genuine human being who embodied devotion, loyalty, and strength of character. The world is a better place because he was part of it. His impact and influence will never be forgotten.
Gunny lives on in the heart of his wife, Liz, who was a selfless and loving partner. She never left his side or waivered in her dedication to him. He is remembered with indescribable love and admiration by his daughter, Brandy, son-in-law, Mark, and his grandchildren, Xander and Emma. It is equally important to note his schnauzer, Buddy, will never stop missing him or the long walks he took with him for as long as his body allowed. May we all remember with deep appreciation and gratitude our beloved Gunny, a true patriot, a true humanitarian, a true friend, and a true hero. Semper Fi.

  • Jeff and I grew up together in Channelview. We were always spending time at his house in the tree house that we built in his backyard. We played football together and rode bikes and were just best friends. The last time that I saw him was in Bay City at a mini reunion for our 1962 classmates. He was working for Bechtel at the South Texas Project Nuclear plant build. I’m so saddened by his passing. Dianne and I will always cherish his friendship through all the years since 1953 when my family moved to Channelview and 1959 when Dianne’s family moved there. Jeff was one of the best guy’s that I have ever known and he will be missed by all that knew him.

  • I was taken aback when I heard of Jeff’s passing. Many of us who knew Jeff lost a great friend. He and I had many work trips together in which we dicussed many topics. He certainly was entertaining. Jeff introduced me to boiled peanuts, searching for geodes, out of the way places to eat, and cigars along the way. Jeff was a character once you met him you didn’t forget him. As a safety professional with Bechtel serving in many capacities and was always willing to mentor others. I was honored to present Jeff with his 25 year bechtel service award. Jeff was devoted to his wife Liz, daughter BrandYy and his grandchildren. It is interesting to note that Jeff celebrated his birthday on the anniversary of the day the Marine Corps was founded. I’m glad that I knew Jeff. SEMPER FI
