We lost a good one.

'He will be sorely missed' Lin, GOP vice chair, father of three, dies after battling cancer
By Dan Meisler

John Lin, vice chairman of the Livingston County Republican Party and father of three, died early Tuesday morning after an 18-month battle with cancer.

Lin, 35, never had the exact origin of his disease diagnosed, but it was treated as colon cancer.

Survivors include his wife, Becky, and three young children, Courtney, Ryan and Austin.

John was a good man, intelligent, a patriot, and a gifted writer, who represented our party and community well. Everybody liked him and respected him. He will be missed. We lost a good man, and God gained a good man.

The good thing is that he's no longer suffering and is in a better place.

Condolences and prayers to his wife, kids, and family. A fund is set up to help the Lin family. He left behind a wife and three young kids.

I hope we find a cure for cancer in my lifetime.
