Obituary of Lincoln F. Kilbourne

Please share a memory of Lincoln to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Lincoln Fay Kilbourne, II, died peacefully, surrounded by his family, early on Friday, March 10, following a stroke. Link was born in Schenectady, N.Y., on September 3, 1941, the son of the late Charles E. Kilbourne II and Lucy Lee Wright Kilbourne. After graduating from the Albany Academy, where he was an All-American swimmer, and Princeton University, he worked as an industrial engineer for the General Electric Company in Schenectady and Pittsburgh, Pa. During his GE career, he worked in power generation in various capacities including application engineering, the gas turbine division, sales and cogeneration. Link was involved in the ownership and operation of restaurants, most notably the Cranberry Bog just outside of Albany, N.Y., and the Straight Wharf Fish Store on Nantucket. From his parents, he inherited an interest and expertise in stamp collecting, with an emphasis on the Civil War era, and pursued this passion throughout almost all his life; the Adirondack Mountains, Lake Champlain and all that the great outdoors had to offer him including hunting, fishing, hiking, and being a woodsman were his greatest pleasures. He patronized and befriended Adirondack artists and had great fun talking with them about their next project. Bruce K. Mitchell, Patricia Reynolds and Dennis Way were his favorites. He is survived by his son, Charles Evans Kilbourne III, his daughter Elizabeth Kilbourne Jeffrey (Richard R. Jeffrey Jr.), his beloved granddaughter Lucy Elizabeth Jeffrey, and a devoted extended family. Arrangements are private. In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial donation to the Keeseville Free Library, 1721 Front St, Keeseville, NY 12944. Arrangements are in the care of the Hamilton Funeral Home, 124 Clinton Street, Keeseville, 834-7667.
