His family moved to Bellingham where Ken attended school until joining the Army Air Corps in December 1943 where he was trained to be a pilot. Following completion of training in Amarillo, TX in 1945, he was Honorably Discharged because the war had ended. He returned to Bellingham and graduated from Bellingham High School in 1946.

Mr. Linder taught me physics at HHS in 1966-67. A great teacher and human being. I love the tie he is wearing in the photo. It was always interesting to see which tie he would wear. Jon Parker

So sorry for the passing of Mr. Linder. Mr. Linder was a highly respected legendary member of our Hoquiam High School faculty. He was my Physics class teacher in 1969. One of the best teachers. Physics is not easy. He made a complex subject easy to understand. I was thankful to get to see him at our 50th class reunion in 2019 along with several other teachers who attended. I was able to share with him how great he and his class was. Great memories of a veteran and Grizzly. RIP and God bless.
Bob Drugge, Puyallup, Wa. Class of 69'
