PAW PAW - Kevin James Linder, 6, of Paw Paw, passed away Tuesday, October 1, 2013, at home, in the arms of his parents. Kevin was born in Scottsdale, AZ, and moved to Paw Paw at five-months-old.
He was an extremely funny, smart, and noisy child, who loved anything related to cars, cooking, home improvement, and Star Wars.
Shortly before turning three- years-old, Kevin was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma cancer, and spent the last 3-1/2 years fighting this horrible disease. Kevin's strength was evident, as he fought it off twice, before finally passing during the third occurrence.
Kevin is survived by his parents, Mark and Kelly; sisters, Shannon and Addison of Paw Paw; grandparents, Harold Linder of Anthem, AZ, Deborah Tinker of Paw Paw, and James Tinker of Phoenix, AZ; as well as cousins, aunts and uncles, too numerous to list here.
Services will be held Sunday, Oct. 6, at 3 p.m. at Michigan Avenue Academy, 600 E. Michigan Ave., Paw Paw.
