National Guard soldier laid to rest: Linde remembered as prankster, family man
SIDNEY, Mont. -- More than 600 people gathered Tuesday to celebrate the life of North Dakota National Guard Sgt. 1st Class Darren Linde, who was remembered as much as a prankster and family man as a decorated soldier and hero.
"I decided God took Darren from us because heaven was getting too boring," his wife, Adrienne Linde, said during the funeral in Linde's hometown of Sidney. "They needed a practical jokester."
