Mr. Fahrenkrug passed away Thursday, October 19, 2023, at his home following a seven-year battle with cancer.
Linn was born January 12, 1965, in Davenport, a son of Richard Allen “Dick” and Roselyn Elaine (nee Beuthien) Fahrenkrug. He graduated from Bettendorf, Class of 1983 and earned his degree in drafting and CAD design from Scott Community College. He was united in marriage to Joann Ullrich on September 21, 1985, Rock Island.
He started his drafting and CAD design career at the former Beling Consultants (Raymond Group) and was currently a project manager for IITI Group.
Linn was multitalented, could fix anything, and never did anything by half measures. He was a highly regarded member of the Aquatic Gardeners Association (AGA) and enjoyed talking with other enthusiasts, helping each other solve problems relative to their hobby. He loved Lowriders and was a founder of the local chapter of the Altered Images Car Club. His purple truck won numerous trophies and was featured multiple times in Lowrider Magazine. He modified the vehicle himself with the help of a few good friends.
Most importantly he was devoted to his family. He loved taking them to car shows, AGA Conventions, and following their activities. His girls remember sitting in his lap playing Mortal Kombat and other games they probably shouldn’t have. He also coached their softball teams and when North High Schools Choir needed a stage, he built it.
Those left to honor his memory include his wife, Joann; daughters Elise Fahrenkrug, Megan (Jesse Stites) Fahrenkrug; mother Roselyn Fahrenkrug all of Davenport; brother Paul (Chris) Fahrenkrug of McCausland; and a host of extended family, friends, and “brothers from other mothers.”
He was preceded in death by his father.
