YOUNGSTOWN - Bryce Anthony Linebaugh, 8, was taken too soon from us on Monday morning, Aug. 20, 2012, at his home in Youngstown.
He was born May 5, 2004, in Warren.
Bryce was a vibrant, full of life, loving and caring boy. He was going to be a second grader at Harding Elementary School and was on the front line of Ever Life Kings pee wee football program, where he was going to be a lineman. Football was his favorite sport, but Bryce enjoyed all sports and riding a four-wheeler with his uncle Mark. He was a member of Leavittsburg Church of God and loved spending time and playing with his younger brother and sister. He aspired to join the U.S. Army when he grew up.
Bryce will be sadly missed by his mother, Jessica Linebaugh and her boyfriend, Thomas Hight of Youngstown; his loving brother and sister, Aniah and Jayvon Harris; his grandparents, Kimberly and Jim Linebaugh and Daniel Linebaugh, all of Warren; great-grandparents, Ernie and Donna Howell of Niles and Larry and Sara Fenn of Warren; and his uncles and aunt, Christian and David Schrekengost, both of Warren, and Mark (Melissa) Linebaugh of Youngstown. He is loved and will be missed by all of his cousins.
One aunt, Kristielee Linebaugh, preceded him in death in 1989.
The family will receive friends from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Lane Family Funeral Homes, Mineral Ridge Chapel and also one hour prior to the noon funeral service Friday at the Leavittsburg Church of God, 610 S. Leavitt Road in Leavittsburg.
