He was born in Muskegon, MI on February 9, 1965, the son of the late Sylvester James Linck, Jr. of Ravenna, MI and Jeanette Clare Linck of St. Louis, MO. Paul graduated from Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN in December 1987, earning a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. After graduating, he moved to Atlanta, GA with Andersen Consulting (now Accenture), and married the former Patricia Lynn Watson on September 3, 1994, in Atlanta, GA. Paul was a software guy his entire life, founding Solutions By Design (SBD) in the mid-1990s with two partners, which they sold in 1998 to what was then Security First Network Bank (SFNB), the first internet bank. He never really retired, founding a couple smaller companies along the way, and certainly never stopped building software. In December 1999, he and his wife bought a house on Lake Oconee in Eatonton, GA, and moved in full-time in 2020, later moving to a new house down the street in August 2020. Paul was an avid golfer and an accomplished marathoner and Ironman triathlete, competing in the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii numerous times. He typically raced alongside of (or rather, in front of) his twin brother. He was a member of Christ Our King and Savior Catholic Church in Greensboro as well as St Thomas More Catholic Church in Atlanta. He was preceded in death by his sisters, Clare Linck and Maureen Linck.
Paul is survived by his wife, Patricia Lynn Linck; his three children: Spencer J. Linck, Andrew J. Linck, and Blair Linck; six siblings: Tom Linck John Linck, Helen Linck, Peter Linck, Jim Linck (his twin), and Tim Linck; his beloved dogs, Jena, Groot and Homer; other relatives and many friends.
