Millinocket – Linwood “Liny” Roland Roix, 96, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Tuesday, December 22, 2020. He was born on August 16, 1924 in Presque Isle to Wallace and Cassie (Adams) Roix.
Linwood grew up in Presque Isle, and was a graduate of Presque Isle High School, class of 1943. He served in the Navy “Seabees” in 1943 and earned an Honorable Discharge in 1945. Linwood was a faithful member of the Nazarene Church for 61 years. The family traveled on many weekends providing special music for Reformed Baptist and Nazarene churches in Maine and Canada. Their talent of harmonizing together came as a God given talent and they chose to use it for God’s glory. He chose auto body work as his career of which he took great pride in. He mentored under his father for several years learning the trade and then moved his family to Millinocket in 1959 where he worked for several car dealerships in the area. After retirement he worked for Katahdin Federal Credit Union tending the grounds.

Brenda and family,
My deepest sympathy to each of you. I am so glad I had the pleasure of meeting your dad a few years ago,
Knowing a little about how well you all attended his needs, I certainly know he was blessed to have each of you.
My prayers are with you.

Sandra, Brenda and Linda,
I was saddened on the passing your your dad. He was a kind, soft spoken guy who was respected by all who knew him. There is no doubt today as to where he is. I hope that all your hearts mend and only sweet memories remain. Hey to all you spouses and grandchildren as well.
