Biker, friend remembered with procession of motorcycles

Nearly 100 motorcycles and their riders visited downtown Rockford, with the machines lining Monroe Street as tribute to motorcyclist Richard “Dick” S. Linney, who passed away Thursday, Oct. 17. The bikers were among those who attended the man’s service at Pederson Funeral Home and later proceeded to his interment at Rosedale Memorial Park.

Linney, age 63, was a 1966 graduate of Rockford High School, who served in the U.S. Army in the Vietnam War. He had a lifelong love of motorcycles and loved to ride his Harley with his wife, Ginny. He was a mechanic and proud owner of SuperCycle Engineering. His specialty was racing and repairing motorcycles.

The outdoorsman was also an avid hunter. He earned his pilots license and owned a 1964 Piper Cherokee. He is survived by his loving wife, Ginny Patterson; daughter, Jennifer Patterson; brother, sisters, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Roger and Pearl Davenport; a sister, Donna Curice; and brother, Mark Davenport.
