Timothy Linkenauger

February 10, 1960September 3, 2020

Timothy John Linkenauger, 60, of Cross Lanes, died of complications from heart disease on Thursday, September 3, 2020 at Cabell Huntington Hospital, with his loving wife and son by his side. Tim was born February 10, 1960 in South Charleston, WV, the eldest child of the late Carlos E. Linkenauger Jr. and Margaret K. McClain. In addition to his parents, Tim was preceded in death by his youngest son, Jared Linkenauger. Tim was a 1978 graduate of Dunbar High School, where he participated in baseball and football programs. He was a dedicated employee of Mountaineer Gas Company for 34+ years until his health interfered with his ability to work. Tim had a passion for youth sports and spent countless hours organizing and coaching the children of Cross Lanes. He enjoyed gardening and golf, but nothing gave him more pleasure than making people laugh and watching his Mountaineers win. A devoted husband, father, gas-man, and friend – Tim will be greatly missed by many. Tim is survived by his wife of 38 years, Jill Linkenauger, son, Timothy (TJ) Linkenauger II, step-father, Joseph McClain, and sister, Carolyn Campbell. There will be no service at this time due to COVID restrictions. The family wishes to thank the MEDICAL ICU doctors and nurses at Cabell Huntington for the extraordinary care and comfort they provided. On line condolences can be sent to the family at

Jill, We are so sorry to hear about Tim. He was a funny guy that loved his family. He was always making us laugh. Memories are precious. One of my favorites was he stopped by our house to check a gas leak. We don't have gas access! Spent many days and nights with him, you, Jared and your parents at baseball fields. I could tell stories all day. He was so much fun to be around. We know he will be missed by all. Peace be with you!

Felt I wanted to let Jill and all of Tim's family know I am thinking of them. I knew Tim (Scooter), one of my childhood friends, since we started cub scouts together and played baseball. He, like everyone knows, was popular and so well liked. He kept me laughing when we sat next to each other in Mrs. Youngs 7th grade math class.

Contact me any time if the need arises. Once again, my heart felt grief. I know the Lord will help you get through.
