It is my sad duty to report George Linhart, a past president of the Illinois State Rifle Association (1962-1963), passed away on January 1, 2015. George was a family man and a friend of many. He retired as a pharmacist. Shooting sports was his game. He participated at Camp Perry in the National Championships and other noted rifle venues. George was a dedicated participant. His name is engraved on numerous prestigious trophies. He was a competitive Master Rifleman in the small bore rifle discipline and garnered the coveted Distinguished medal in high power rifle and the President’s 100 club. George was a stalwart member of the Bell Rifle and Pistol Club, Inc. as were his daughters. He resided at the Wheaton Convalescent Center in Wheaton, Illinois these past years. His memorial service is scheduled for Sunday, February 15, 2015. George would be 87 years of age.
