He was born Jan. 7, 1953, in Celina, to Robert and Lucille Jansen Link, who survive in Celina. On June 11, 1994, in Montezuma, he married Alice A. Elbert, who also survives in Celina.
Also surviving are a son, Rick (Ashley) Link, Portland, Ore.; two step-children, Edward (Vicki Stevenson) Elbert,Vandalia, and Terina (Jerry) Smith, Celina; four grandchildren, Renner, Cambree, Grady and Larkin Link; seven stepgrandchildren, Dustin, Kyle and Rachel Grinstead and Eric, Jared, Sam and Jorja Thompson; siblings, David (Karin) Link, Gahanna, Ann (Bruce Luebke) Romer, Celina, Janet (Dennis) Hoyng, Celina, Lora (Mike) Horan, Deland, Fla., Mike (Andrea) Link, St. Marys, and Pat (Susie) Link, Chillicothe; and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was a member of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, Montezuma, and a 1971 graduate of St. Henry High School. He worked at Avco New Idea for a number of years before starting his own carpentry and remodeling business.
He truly loved his grandchildren and spending time with them fishing, biking, and pontoon riding. He enjoyed time with family. The family will miss the sparkle in his eyes and the laughter he shared. He truly lit a candle of love in each of their hearts that will continue to glow brightly.
Their carpenter has gone home to his Father in Heaven, where he will likely assist in preparing rooms for each of his family and friends, adding his creative touch.
