Armando Antonio Linky

Armando Antonio Linky, 69, passed from this life unexpectedly at his home on March 28, 2024. He was born in El Salvador on September 19, 1954.

Armando immigrated to the United States in his 20’s from El Salvador,  where he left behind a life of dire poverty to reconstruct an easier path for himself and his family. Armando’s story is one of determination and success.  Anyone who knew him speaks of his warm smile and humble and generous heart. Armando’s tenacity and hunger for life allowed him to face with dignity, the many challenges new immigrants who come with little to no English into the Unites States face. For Armando obstacles were just  stepping stones  for reaching his goals. Throughout his life, he  demonstrated that his strong work ethic, education,  and his unwavering desire to be a positive role model in society served him as the foundation for his success in his professional  and personal life.

Armando never forgot his humble beginnings and visited El Salvador when he could and remained deeply connected to his roots teaching his children about  the importance of becoming educated in traditions and celebrations he missed from his beloved homeland.

Armando, a poet and writer at heart dedicated his verses to his beloved wife, and in his free time, he took to photography, enjoyed gardening on his property, watching soccer and cooking and tasting new recipes out  with his loving wife, Yolanda.  A lover of nature and animals he adored his miniature Yorkee, Charlie, with who he spent time with until he parted.

A free spirit and lifelong learner, once established in the states , Armando dedicated his life to his work as a Process Improvement Specialist and retired after 29 years of service  at Powell Industries. Prior to working at Powell, he worked as a page editor for La Voz de Houston Newspaper and El Sol Newspaper, a Spanish-language weekly newspaper distributed by the Houston Chronicle.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory, his loving wife of 43 years, Yolanda Leticia Linky; children, Ivania Marinero , Armando Linky (Christina Linky), and Amanda Chin and her husband  Winston Amador Chin. Grandchildren, Max Brian, Olivia Grace, Mila Rose, and Aurora Jade Celine. Other survivors include, brothers Mauricio and Jose. He is predeceased by his parents, Roberto Linky and Elvira Consuelo Castro; his siblings Martha, Ulyses, Alonso, and Isabel; father-in-law Raul Arrazola, brother-in-laws Paul Arrazola and Victor Arrazola.

In his honor, there will be a visitation on Thursday, April 4th, 2024 from 5:00pm to 7:30pm with a rosary at 7:30pm at Crowder Funeral in Dickinson, Texas. A funeral mass will be held on Friday, April 5th, 2024 at 10:30am at Shrine of the True Cross Catholic Church, in Dickinson, Texas.
