Wilbert Hearn Linscomb

October 15, 1932 — September 8, 2022

Wilbert Hearn Linscomb fought a good fight and the race ended on September 8, 2022. He was born in Hartburg, Texas on October 15, 1932, to parents, Neil and Sarah Linscomb.

He later received certifications for water and radiation levels from the University of Houston and Texas A&M University. Working for the Texas Highway Department for 36 years, he earned his retirement in 1987. The entire crew during his many years knew him as “Uncle Bub.” After retirement, he and his wife traveled the United States and Mexico. With a passion to fish and camp, he made numerous trips to the river with his brothers and family. Living in Hartburg all of his life, Wilbert attended Hartburg Bapstist Church.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Neil and Sarah Linscomb; his beloved son, Randy Linscomb; his brothers and sisters-in-law, Robert and Bessie Linscomb, James and Georgia Linscomb, Floyd and Mary Linscomb, Earnest and Evie Linscomb, and Wesley and Evie Linscomb; his sister and brother-in-law, Emily and J.R. Ferguson; as well as other family members-in-law, Avis and Grover Smith, Larry Smith, Olen Smith, and Dorothy and Floyd Spurgeron.
