To Mr. George Linzey 's Family- My deepest condolences . I met Chaplain George Linzey on active duty in the Navy in 1987. It was a blessing to serve with George at Naval Training Station , San Diego. God Bless you My Dear Friend. Chaplain Christine Milam, Youngsville, North Carolina

I am a retired Navy Chaplain and Chaplain Linzey was my Supervisor at Great Lakes, Illinois. He taught me many things about ministry and service to others. Even though he was my Supervisor, that did not preclude him from ministering to me as a fellow child of God. There was a time when the continuance of my ministry as a Navy Chaplain was in peril. Chaplain Linzey went far out of his way to minister to me and help lead me through that challenge. Lord, thank you for sending George to bless and minister to everyone he knew.

I just want to thank Chaplain Linzey, George you will be missed, I'm so thankful that you answered your phone that day when my dad called to ask if you were Chaplain Stan Linzey's son, and from there our conversation led to me becoming a Chaplain. Thank you for caring for all of us, and bringing your sense of humor to all of our conversations. You will be greatly missed. But we will see you again one day.

God Bless, James and Julie Lester

My sincerest condolences to your family, church family, and to our chaplains who our beloved Chaplain Linzey loved and served.

I am so grateful to have had my Chaplain Linzey beside my wife and I in Fort Jackson for my regimental pinning ceremony. His intercession on my behalf and behalf of my family is our greatest memory of a godly man who served God’s kingdom with loving passion.

Chaplain Linzey, you will be greatly missed.

I can't even begin to express my most deepest condolences, and so deeply moved by our loss, especially in a time that I am deployed away from America. My heart is sore because I did not get a chance to speak to a man who always brought laughter, encouragement and prayer to my life. George was such a beautiful soul and such an amazing spirit. I so greatly appreciate our divine appointment in our endorsement conference in Texas and our dinner gatherings. He is home with our Lord, fought the good fight, now has a crown of glory, a glorified body and the privilege to hear well done from the Lord Himself!
My prayers are for God to continue to strengthen you and give you comfort as He embraces you with His grace.
Sincerely,
Chaplain (CPT) Lelys Miller

Dr. Linzey will always hold a special place in my heart. After Chaplain Boyles passed he picked up the baton and ran with it. As my Chaplain Endorser he would visit ORU and take the Chaplains in Tulsa, Oklahoma out to eat at the Cheesecake Factory. He was generous man, when we went to conference in California and Texas, he always had the hearts of the Chaplains on his mind. He was a great leader and father in the faith. I loved him dearly, when we would talk on the phone he was always full of joy. This picture is where he ordained Aaron Arnold and I on the Arkansas River- Tulsa OK April 2017. To the family my heartfelt condolences to each of you. May God Comfort your hearts.

One of the best memories I will have of George was when he showed up to my graduation in Newport, Rhode Island to watch me graduate Chaplain school. The next morning Goerge took me out to breakfast. We had the whole restaurant to ourselves early that morning. He began to tell me stories of when he was a chaplain and how he loved serving others, and he gave me a mandate to do the same. He was full of wisdom, compassion, and love. Goerge I will see you on the other side.

May God grant peace to your family during these times.

I remember my first memory of Dr. Linzey. I had just made it to CHBOLC for the Army. I had been lossed in shuffle after the passing of Chaplain Boyles. When I spoke with Dr. Linzey He was always up beat and seemed to be just full of life. He came down for my Chaplain graduation in Fort Jackson and I remember we just had a grand time. Even if I ran into issues with trying to become a military chaplain he always had several ideas and solutions on how to rectify the situation. Over the course of time knowing George my love and appreciation grew. There is no doubt he will be missed.

His passion for ministry and willingness to do whatever it took to bring men and women who love the Lord to serve as military chaplains. I am forever grateful and blessed to have known Dr. Linzey and be a part of our amazing PCG family.
