Lin was born September 22, 1954, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He lived many years in St. Louis, Missouri. However, he was a resident of the Peoria area for 45 years. He worked as a pressman at Winpak for 35 years before retiring January 1, 2019.
His parents, William and Zoe Webster, precede him in death.
He leaves his wife of 34 years, Lori, his children, Brandon (Jenny), Kristen, Connor, and one brother, Randall. He is also survived by his brother-in-law Robert Schmitt, sister-in-law Julie (Bob) Fleming of Henderson, Nevada, and brother-in-law Michael Schmitt. He was also a very special uncle to many.
An avid sports fan, he was a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals, Blues, and Kansas City Chiefs. He loved to travel, golf, cook, and explore different dive bars, especially those on Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives. His love of music was contagious. Lin was beloved by all and cherished by his family, friends, and coworkers.
There will be a celebration of life from 1-5 at the American Legion Post 979 in Bartonville on Sunday, January 12. Per Moondog’s wishes, come casual and ready to share laughs and memories in his honor. Moondog loved entering the Hammer’s Chili Cook-off, so we will be providing chili for everyone to enjoy.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of Lin may be made to Individual Advocacy Group, care of Peoria region, 1215 Lakeview Court, Romeoville, IL, 60446. This is the non-profit organization, which provides services to adult with disabilities in which his daughter, Kristen, resides.
