Alex Linden Cause of Death – Passed Away: MILWAUKEE, WI., – Alex Linden of Madison, Wisconsin has passed away. The circumstances surrounding the cause of his death had not been made public at the time of this report. Alex Linden was a prominent guitarist in the Bereft (WI) band. He got engaged to Katie Kane on July 2nd.
Chris Wipperfurth shared the passing of Alex Linden on his Facebook page on Monday morning, December 13th, 2021. “Rest in peace, Alex Linden. The Madison music community has lost one hell of a gentleman and a damn kind-hearted dude. If you knew him, you loved him. I’ll be bending the elbow and rocking some Bereft tonight. My profound sympathy goes out to his family, friends, and bandmates.”
Alex was described as a terrific guy with a witty and distinct personality who was never hesitant to display it, and his friends adored him for it. His buddies also described him as someone who was always up for a good laugh.
I was a dweeby, not very talented kid in a scene that I probably wasn’t cool enough to be in. But Alex Linden was always insanely cool and accepting of me. Even as we grew older, he always stayed in touch and reached out. He asked me to try out for Bereft, which I thought was crazy he thought I could do that, but was so unbelievably flattered and appreciative. I still am grateful of that, just because he had the faith that I would’ve been good enough to join the fold. We just were talking about how good the new season of Curb was. I’m so sorry we didn’t get to record the American Movie podcast. I love you brother, and I love you Katie Kane. I am so sorry.
Alex Linden obituary and funeral arrangements will be announced at a later date by his family.
