Mr. Lindsey grew up in Texas on a small farm in Frio County near the small community of Melon. He graduated from Pearsall High School in 1944 and after graduation served in the United States Army for two years. He attended Texas A&M University and received a B.S. degree in Agricultural Education. He married the love of his life, Dorothy in 1949.
He was in the Agricultural Extension Service for eighteen years, serving as Assistant County Agricultural Agent in Lavaca and Guadalupe Counties and County Agricultural Agent in Goliad and Caldwell Counties. He and his family moved to Lockhart in 1955. He also spent eleven years working as a farm manager in Caldwell County. He and Dorothy moved back to Pearsall in 1981 where he was employed by Riverside Chemical and the Pearsall Livestock Market. They moved back to Lockhart in 1990 into a house close to best friends Leonard and Lamerle Schuelke. From that time until he became ill he helped take care of his son’s ranch outside of Lockhart.
Daddy, PaPa was a loving and dedicated father and husband. His children received a legacy from him that they will carry and pass on to their children. This includes honesty, love of nature, respect of animals, sense of humor, and, most importantly, a love of the Lord. He always had a smile on his face and taught us to be generous with ourselves and to others. His grandchildren will remember that he tried his best to be at every event in their lives, even if it was hard for him to do. He was a gentleman and a gentle man.
Because this is a service in his memory we want all to remember how much we loved, honored and respected him and we will always be grateful to him.
The family wishes to thank all who helped care for our Daddy: Dorothy Anderson at the Greens, Dr. Smith and the Texas Oncology staff, the fourth floor staff at Kyle Seton hospital, the Legends staff, and Central Texas Medical Center Hospice Care. Thank all of you for your continued love, support and prayers.
For those desiring to honor Mr. Lindsey’s life through memorials, the family has suggested they be given to the American Cancer Society or the Central Texas Medical Center Hospice care.
