I was born in Syracuse, New York, to Linda and Mike, and was the first of their three children. My family settled to Baldwinsville, more commonly referred to as “B’ville” where I attended grade school and graduated from Charles W. Baker High School. My earliest taste of acting came as a singer and comedian in the variety show “Vaudeville” held at the Mae E. Reynolds auditorium.
In college as a business major, I officially caught the “acting bug” and soon after moved to New York City to pursue this career. I studied, trained, auditioned, and finally began to book commercials, short films, off-Broadway plays and tours. Around the time I appeared in Alan Ball’s “Bachelor Holiday” at The Neighborhood Playhouse I made arrangements to relocate west to the movie capital of the world.
After the move I wrote a feature length screenplay titled “Rounding Home” and produced it into a movie in which I starred as the love confused minor league baseball player.
I include Eric Morris, Ivana Chubbuck, Brian Reise, and Rebecca Kitt as major influences to my technique and style of acting as I continue to pursue this amazing art form.

I’ve recently begun taking all sorts of new classes for the business side of acting and along with the new classes have come the setting of new goals. The goal I’m focusing on for the next 8 weeks is to land a strong commercial agent who is as excited to work with me as I am with them. In preparing to move forward, I flashed back to the handful of agents I’ve worked with so far in my career and came to the realization that Lincoln Dabagia was by far, the one person I’ve ever had represent me that I connected with entirely. To make a long story short, in 2008 he sent me an email regarding the opening of his own agency as well as a link to his website. I immediately wished him well on his new endeavor, but since I was under contract elsewhere I didn’t entertain thoughts of going back… until now. But now its too late, in trying to reconnect with Lincoln I discovered he passed away in 2008 at the young age of 38. In a world where we feel we’ll always have another day, the fact is you never know. I write this now in hopes of inspiring myself and others to live each day to the fullest, doing things that you love to do with those closest to you. With deep respect for the man I remember, I present his obituary.
Lincoln Dana Dabagia, formerly of Michigan City, died unexpectedly Sunday, June 8, 2008 at his home in Santa Clarita, Calif. He was 38. He was born May 2, 1970 in Michigan City, the son of Lee W. and Dana (Polomcak) Dabagia, both of whom survive in Michigan City, and his wife, Jennifer Rose Loyacano, whom he married June 26, 2004 in Los Angeles, Calif.
He is also survived by brothers, Lee W. (Anastasia) Dabagia, Jr., Michigan City, Peter Scott Brown, Aspen, Colo. and Anthony Paul (Wendy) Brown, Crested Butte, Colo.; aunts, Louise Dabagia, Michigan City, Regina Barack, Portage and Juliette (Jill) Long, Chesterton; uncles and aunts, Milton D. (Susan) Dabagia, Michigan City, Robert C. (Nancy) Dabagia, Michigan City and Norman A. (Sally) Dabagia, Burr Ridge, Ill., parent-in-laws, Joan and Stephen Loyacano, Los Angeles, Calif.; sisters-in-law Stephanie, Los Angeles and Elizabeth, New York, N.Y.; six nieces and nephews along with hundreds of loving cousins, including a special one, Michael Dabagia, all living in Ariz., Calif., Ill., Mich., N.J., Texas, Pa., Wash., Wis. and the country of Lebanon.
Lincoln was preceded in death by his beloved St. Bernard, Caesar, who together with Jennifer, nursed and cared for him for years as he suffered with cancer. He adored animals for whom he had deep compassion.
Lincoln graduated from Marquette High School in 1988 and Purdue University in 1993, with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Following graduation, and, as an accomplished musician, Lincoln performed with numerous bands in Lafayette, Indianapolis, Chicago and Los Angeles. He entered the commercial talent business in Los Angeles nine years ago, where he met his lovely and loving future wife Jennifer and owned and operated his own commercial talent agency, LDA Talent Agency in Los Angeles the past year, placing numerous actors in national and regional commercials, including the 2008 Super Bowl ads.
Public visitation for friends of the family will be from 2-8 p.m. Wednesday, June 18 at Carlisle Funeral Home. Following public visitation, private services will be held at the funeral home for family and relatives only at 11 a.m. Thursday, with interment at Greenwood Cemetery.
The family requests no flowers. Memorial contributions may be made either to Much Love Animal Rescue, P.O. Box 341721, Los Angeles, CA 90034; the Tanber-Blair Scholarship Foundation, P.O.
