Sadly, we must pass along the heartbreaking news that young Raiden Dwayne Linkous lost his battle against Niemann-Pick Disease on Sunday evening, November 4th, 2012.  He was surrounded by his loving family when he peacefully lost his fight.  Raiden was born on April 24, 1996 in Pulaski, the son of Michelle Dean Long and Douglas Dwayne Linkous.  His brothers, Alvis and Ashton, along with step-brother, Christian and step-sister, Abby ~ will miss young Raiden greatly.

Raiden was an inspiration to all who met him and had the opportunity to see his tender smile and kind disposition.  He LOVED spending times outdoors, especially fishing with his Dad and family or spending time with loved ones near the water.  He will be sorely missed by his family, friends, and NPD community.

To send online condolences to the family, please visit:

The family created a (soon to be) not-for-profit to expand upon Raiden's love of fishing.  Please check it out: Fishing For Charities
