Billy Harold Lindsey

September 27, 1930 — March 17, 2024


The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?  When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an army should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this I will be confident.  Psalm 27:1-3
Billy H. Lindsey affectionately known as “Grandpa & PaPa” was born to Ida and Herman Lindsey on the levy in New Madrid, Missouri on September 27, 1930. He was raised in East Prairie, Missouri, alongside his two brothers and six sisters.  He was a loving husband, devoted father, cherished grandfather, and respected member of the community. He fought a good fight until he peacefully passed away on March 17, 2024, at the young age of ninety-three (93).    

Billy embarked on a successful career in the automotive and aerospace industry, where his dedication and hard work earned him the admiration of colleagues and leaders alike.

In 1949, Billy Lindsey married the love of his life, Dale Franks and together they shared 74 wonderful years of marriage filled with love, laughter, and countless cherished memories. They also had two beautiful children Steve and Joan Lindsey. Their bond was a testament to their enduring commitment and deep affection for one another.

Throughout his life, Billy was known for his kindness, generosity, and unwavering integrity. He touched the lives of many with his wisdom, compassion, and willingness to lend a helping hand to those in need. His presence brought joy and comfort to all who knew him, and his legacy of love and compassion will continue to inspire generations to come. He lived a life filled with passion and adventure. In his free time, he found solace and joy in the simplicity of a beautiful sunrise. Whether it was shooting archery, chasing crappie, or pursuing the biggest buck on the hill, he embraced every moment with enthusiasm and determination.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Herman & Ida Lindsey; his son Steve Lindsey; his great-granddaughter Shylow Parker and great grandson Dominic Thomas. 

He leaves to cherish his memory, his loving and devoted wife, Dale Lindsey; his loving daughter, Joan Lindsey; six (6) grandchildren, Heather, Brian, Jessica, Emily, Tyson and Billy; fourteen (14) great-grandchildren; We are also grateful for the love and support of his forever family, including Derek, Tanya, Kyle, Ray and Dolly; as well as other relatives and friends. He will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.       

May his soul rest in peace, and may his memory continue to live on in the hearts of those who loved him.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Revelations 21:4
